Current Employee - Department Head

I have been working at Fidelity Investments full-time

Pros

Great company to work for

Cons

Need to navigate complexity sometimes

Current Employee - Client Service Associate

I have been working at Vanguard full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good culture, great team work. Genuinely care about their staff and it is an inclusive culture. Every opinion is considered and its an open forum, if you have a good idea, it will be implemented.... Good bonuses, salary average and great benefits.

Cons

Long hours in the PI Department but that's being addressed.

Advice to Management

Just keep doing what you're doing. As long as you recognise the hard work and effort that your staff put in then they will continue to doing what they can to support the business.
