I have an initial phone interview with a HR woman at Vanguard this week. I'm considering applying for their Accelerated Development Program. For those that are not familiar with the program, it is a 1.5year rotational program that prepares you for a career in investment analysis, people leadership, or client relationship management. I'm pretty set on investment analysis (specifically), but I'm not sure that Vanguard is where I want to be in the long-term. My buddy who works there says that they don't have a true team, and that they heavily quant mondels rather than performing fundamental analysis.
Can anyone share their experience with this program? I could really use some help weighing the pro's and con's of entering into this program.
