Diversity and Inclusion

At Vanguard, every moment counts. Every idea counts. And every voice counts. We believe that the diversity of our crew is a reflection of our clients. It represents a changing global marketplace—strengthened by inclusion and a sense of belonging. Here we champion the abilities and ambitions of our crew throughout their careers. With the support of their teammates and our Crew Resource Groups (CRGs) we are focusing on enriching the experiences of Women, Black, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, and LGBTQ professionals, as well as our service-minded military veterans and friends through our VetsConnect network. Because when different perspectives are shared, we have even more opportunities to innovate and step forward for our investors everywhere.

Benefits and Work Perks

Just like each of our clients who have their own investing needs, we understand that each of our crew members have their own personal and family needs. Our Total Rewards package can help you improve your health, advance your education, secure your retirement and more.



Just as we strive to offer the best chance at success for our investors, we strive to do the same for our crew. Our Vanguard Retirement Savings Plan allows you to create a portfolio that fits your needs—and receive up to 4% in matched contributions from us, and 10% contribution without condition. Plus, you’ll get the tools you need to save for both big moments and small.



Here, doing good for clients goes hand in hand with feeling good and being well.

Feel cared for with our many wellness perks like CrewCare, our onsite health clinic; ShipShape, our onsite fitness center; and our Health Smart Rewards program.



We believe that growth should be fostered inside the office and out. That’s why we offer you the tools to reduce student loan debt, continue your education, and even help fund your children’s schooling.



Your time is valuable. That’s why we offer you the paid time off (PTO) you need to relax, recharge and return ready to make a difference for your clients and yourself. Spend time with family and friends, enjoy your hobbies and travels and let those experiences enrich your career.
