Vanguard's "crew members" love the company's nautical theme, which contributes to the sense of identity and a feeling of connection with the company culture. Rooms around the office include "galleys" and "pantries," while the fitness center is known as "Ship-Shape"—and most buildings on the Vanguard campus are named for ships from 18th century British naval history.
