Investment Analyst Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Investment Analyst?

Investment Analyst in Malvern:
`"$Big impact role."`
Pros: The role strongly impacts the growth of the business and there is opportunity to develop important financial skills with one's own initiative.
Cons: Vanguard's low cost culture means pay and investment in technology is a little less than competitors. I also get the sense that many jobs have been simplified so much that anyone can step into the role without a lot of past experience.
