Computer World just ranked Vanguard No. 10 among large employers in its 100 Best Places to Work in IT 2017.
The Malvern mutual fund giant provides enviable benefits and steers its IT staff toward personal and professional growth through a lean methodology that fosters experimentation and innovation.
“The tech crew is empowered to solve problems and drive business outcomes, rather than simply delivering solutions based on a set of requirements,” Computer World stated.
As evidence of its success in IT culture, Vanguard’s 2,658 IT professionals in America see a scant five percent turnover, while 13 percent received promotions last year. They also get 10 training days and a $1,317 training budget per employee each year, on top of 21 days of paid time off after just a year and 29 days after 10 years.
Furthermore, Vanguard pays 86 percent of health insurance premiums.
The 2017 ranking propelled the company up from No. 48 in 2016 and 2015. The top three workplaces were Quicken Loans, Owens Corning, and Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
