    I have been working at Invesco Aim full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits and a great training regime, training gets you up to speed about your duties so you do not feel inadequate. Also, their networking between various departments is up to snuff. Various ways of interacting outside of work including through sports and community service.

    Cons

    Literally everything is graded, from your work to the way you stay organized. Its high school over again. Also do not dare speak up against authority even for blatantly wrong decisions. It will cost you your job, they have no qualms about letting people go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to review the system you have in place for client services, no one feels safe with their jobs.

    Pros

    Technology; Work Life balance; Knowledgeable staff; Training

    Cons

    IT management was for the most part recruited in London UK… And brought to Houston to work. Most are on visas so they have to stay at company. When your salary reaches a certain level they force you out.

    They try to provide as much of a competitive salary and benefits package to its employees as possible. Employee hard work and loyalty are rewarded.

    Additional staff needed in certain departments to adequately support work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to compensate valuable employees and recognize those that have a lot of growth potential within the company.

    If you are recruited out of college to work as a client service rep w/ invesco aim, do not take the job.

    Pros

    If you do not have a college degree, it isn't bad money for a call center. There is a money purchase plan in place which pays 6% annually, but you are not fully vested until you have been with the company 4 years. It also has a 401k in place which matches up to 5%.

    Cons

    Very poor promotion opportunities; low pay for anyone w/ a college degree. It is nearly impossible to get vacation time when you want it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on what type of employee you should be recruiting for a specific decision. If you recruit college grads for a client service position, and fail to provide advancement opportunities, you will not retain talent.

    Invesco; Downsizing and outsourcing while Senior Management enjoys the good life..

    Pros

    Higher than average pay. Pleasant work environment. As long as a mediocre employee keeps his nose clean, he has a job for life.

    Cons

    Many back office and I.T. jobs being outsourced to India. Talented staff find employment elsewhere due to job stagnation. The result is a company staffed by a majority of long term employees with no ambition/desire to grow just doing the minimum to collect a paycheck. The company has cancelled many inexpensive low-mid staff perks while Senior Management fly expensive Net Jets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Play hardball and send mediocre employees packing. Drop the policy of requiring managers to provide justification why every vacant job position SHOULDN'T be outsourced to India. Cancel the companies NetJet contract and fly commercial. Restore the policy of requiring staff to rate their manager's performance.
