private:vanguard https://www.indeed.com/cmp/vanguard/reviews Feb 21st, 2024 07:51PM Open Open Open Vanguard Client Representative Charlotte, NC Do not go here Do not work here if you do not get your license they will drop you like a bad habit cut off your benefits before the month is out & will treat you as if they never cared. They will tell you that you will have support but it’s not true you’re teaching yourself there’s an instructor that comes once a week that doesn’t go into detail . They make the benefit package look really well with the bonus etc but you have to fight for it and force them to active your benefits. The job is stressful and the employer does not care at ALL . Better off applying to TIAA or fidelity 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 Feb 21st, 2024 11:51PM Feb 21st, 2024 11:51PM Vanguard Financials
private:vanguard https://www.indeed.com/cmp/vanguard/reviews Feb 16th, 2024 09:52PM Open Open Open Vanguard High Net Worth Representative Scottsdale, AZ A glorified call center with amazing benefits Pros- lots of good benefits (401k match, 1.5k wellness fund, lots of pto, okay health care and salary, paid training and licensing, good amount of flexibility) Cons - you will be taking phone calls all day from clients. The amount of effort spent micromanaging your metrics is absurd. VG claims they are all digital but the amount of times a digital form doesn’t work is crazy which hurts your metrics and causes the clients to give you a headache. Verdict- Good first job out of college but if you are interested in vanguard really know that you are working in a call center 9-6. It is non stop call after call. FADP program is good and they do have a solid advisor program 0.0 0.0 3.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 Feb 16th, 2024 11:52PM Feb 16th, 2024 11:52PM Vanguard Financials
private:vanguard https://www.indeed.com/cmp/vanguard/reviews Feb 15th, 2024 07:26PM Open Open Open Vanguard Financial Advisor Charlotte, NC Good job overall Great Job security and work/life balance. Health benefits were great until 2020 and the changed to all high deductible plans, retirement plan is very good with match and quarterly distribution. Job is relatively low stress but pay is lower in comparison to other similar jobs. Management doesn’t necessarily believe in working experience translating to leadership capabilities. 0.0 0.0 4.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 Feb 16th, 2024 11:52PM Feb 16th, 2024 11:52PM Vanguard Financials

private:vanguard https://www.indeed.com/cmp/vanguard/reviews Feb 7th, 2024 03:46PM Open Open Open Vanguard Senior Financial Advisor Charlotte, NC Below Average Typical corporate structure. Yes men get promoted and those that don't drink the koolaid are labeled as difficult. Most people there have been at the company there whole career and have nothing to compare it to. External hires are typically the ones to challenge and question which limits their promotion potential. I learned no new skills while there. Old technology so most of your day is spent getting systems to work instead of focusing on financial planning. I was experienced in the industry so I hit the ground running. For those new to the advice role, you will struggle with financial concepts. Training is spent teaching you how to use systems not on how to be a financial advisor. Your job is to put everyone in the same portfolio and use the same 4 funds so not a lot of financial planning going on even in the Ultra High Networth space. Pay is ok. You are salaried so it doesn't matter how hard you work you will still make ok money. Great place to start your career by getting licensed and a great place to end your career by just coasting to the finish line. Anywhere in between is a waste of time and are lost years where you will spend time learning skills that are not transferable. I don't think senior leadership has a clear plan as the focus shifts constantly with nothing getting done. I spent 2 years too long there. Salaried just to turn the computer on Lack of skill development, unclear focus for the future 0.0 0.0 1.0 5.0 2.0 2.0 3.0 1.0 Feb 7th, 2024 11:51PM Feb 7th, 2024 11:51PM Vanguard Financials

What is the best part of working at the company? The 401K match and additional contribution is excellent. What is the most stressful part about working at the company? The management is terrible and the politics make everything miserable. What is the work environment and culture like at the company? Ultra toxic and political making it impossible to move upward. What is a typical day like for you at the company? Stressful, defeating, demoralizing. 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 Feb 6th, 2024 11:55PM Feb 6th, 2024 11:55PM Vanguard Financials
