"This company has lost lawsuits made against them for their treatment of female employees. Know what you are getting into, and never for a moment think their mid management's need for constant positive feedback is misunderstood. It is a need, and if you don't always give positive feedback, their anonymous daily and weekly surveys will come back on you."

"Flexibility is totally reliant on whether your boss and your boss's boss likes you. you are told daily to remember to "brand" yourself well with leadership and encourage you to research all team leads in your department so that you can present yourself differently when they are in your ear shot. that, to me, seems to be a bit different than merely suggesting that their employees learn their job and learn it well to support other departments, the company and the clients. but, to each their own."

"Head for the exits immediately and start planning on Plan B. You are not appreciated; valued; and the only thing that matters is the expense ratio and not employees. Fake culture - hostile and abusive. "

"Like many other companies, if you intend to make use of all the great benefits (flexible schedules, parental leave) expect to be penalized. Vanguard is very secretive about employee pay so although they make many claims about women and men being paid equally for equal work and women in leadership there is no available data to support this."

"Vanguard has a great culture and mission - to help every day people reach their financial dreams. With main campus located in a plush Philadelphia suburb, the company is worlds away from Wall Street, both by location and attitude. At Vanguard, I love working with smart, driven people who are honestly very kind and friendly. People care about doing the right thing for the company and the clients. With integrity, work ethic and the right attitude you can really follow your passion at Vanguard."

"Like most organizations, there is a strong company culture, which isn't for everyone. Those who are extremely successful adapt (or innately share) the same ideals; those who try to change the culture or resist it struggle.

"Vanguard is a great, client-centric organization. We truly believe in being an advocate for our clients, treating them fairly and giving them the best possible chance for investment success. I believe the firm could do a better job with maternity/paternity leave policies (specifically paid time off). I think they do a WONDERFUL job with flexible arrangements, but do not think it is consistent across the organization. Finally, at the most senior levels, the organization feels male-dominated."

"I've worked there for over 17 years and many changes are taking place within the company. Because I could not obtain my securities licenses, I am told I have to leave in June 2015. Not looking forward to going out and looking for a new job and having to compete with younger women. The years that I have worked for the company for were wonderful. I will miss all my co workers that have become my friends. I guess if I would say that this company is great to work for. Their benefits are good and they do care for their employees."
