Lavoro a tempo pieno presso Vanguard
-Vanguard acts on feedback from advisors. It can take a while but it appears they do actively try and improve.
-Collaborative culture people are willing to help
-Throughout the pandemic, VG has worked to accommodate its crew (extra bonus pay, early bonus pay, Childcare leave, Covid leave)
-Good 401k match, decent benefits
-Great place to get started in the industry (will pay for your licenses and advanced certifications CFP, CFA, MBA etc)
-We are given too much work to complete in a 37.5-hour workweek. OT is expected.
-Constantly implementing new changes that are not usable or ready to be implemented that make more work for advisors.
-Very outdated technology for both the client and advisor
-Moving up is very much about who you know. Networking will do much more for you than your job performance, this in my experience has been more egregious than other places I have worked.
-Pay is lower than competitors
Consigli per i dirigenti
Look more at what an advisors day actually consists of, and adjust the workload, Advisors are burning out. Stop prioritizing external hires and those who get into Development programs. It lowers morale and does not reward those who are loyal or hard working.
Ho presentato la mia candidatura online. Ho sostenuto un colloquio presso Vanguard (Charlotte, NC (Stati Uniti d'America)) a ottobre 2020.
(All interviews were remote - applied during Covid-19 on Sep 11th)
I was required to do a Hackerrank assessment. There were ~7 questions. Can't remember now, but I think a few were MCQ and a few algorithm/data structure type questions.
Less than a week later I was invited to the initial phone screen. This was your basic get-to-know-you type call. I was asked about location preference, expected graduation date, technologies I know, and finally some behavioral questions ("Tell me about a time when..."). During this call, we also set up a second "initial phone screen" with someone more technical.
The second phone screen was with a technical non-recruiter person. They asked about my personal projects, about my current position, and some technical questions. Questions like "Why is software testing important?".
A week or so later I was invited to what I assume is the actual interview. A 4 hour session from 8:30am to 12pm. You're given a case study, basically a piece of paper with a real-world problem with requirements and you're supposed to come up with a solution. You have about 30 minutes to complete this before you start your first interview. 2 interviews total, 1 hour each, then the rest of the time, from 11 to 12, is them just trying to convince you to join Vanguard. Kind of pointless. First interview was behavioral, second was technical with a sprinkle of behavioral. The technical interview was question and answer format, but my interviewer was really good at unblocking my answers and keeping the conversation moving. No writing code during this part, but did have to solve an algorithm type questions - basically create a program to efficiently solve a Hangman game.
