Retirement Services Unit Leader

What do you like about working at The Vanguard Group?

"Convienent to home, short commute. Good benefit package, salary was decent."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"New CEO took over, which is a good thing. And the Senior VP of the Individual Investor division was forced into retirement - another good move. Interview if you must - be very professional. VG culture is exceedingly uptight - suit and tie at all times!"

What don't you like about working at The Vanguard Group?

"Very long work hours (12 hour days were typical - at least 3 days a week), very political work environment for ANYONE in a management position. Some senior managers, division heads are simply SOCIOPATHS. Be careful whom you confide in."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Less sociopaths! No, really. Seriously. There were several that I used to have to deal with. Lose the rack n stack performance appraisal system. Being forced to rate 10% of my staff as not meeting standards in order to meet a quota, and only being able to rate 10% of my staff as outstanding to meet a quota just simply SUCKS."
