    Management in UK is only worried about other UK nationals. Bad environment and HR will not help even when you have legit complaint about UK management

    Pros

    Unfortunately I have nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    If you work in a City like NY or SF your comp will be low and will rarely go up because corporate is based in cities with low cost of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should at a minimum have a Bachelor's degree. Managers who have been with the company for a long period and have been Grandfathered into their management positions without a college degree should return to an accredited university to advance their education.

    Not a place that encourages employees to excel. Those who don't do, get ahead.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are OK. If you're hourly, they don't expect you to work much overtime. Some of the people are really great.

    Cons

    Very 'lord of the flies' culture. Eat or be eaten. Management allows behavior that wouldn't fly at other companies. Not much in the way of innovation and if you do speak up, if it's not what the boss wanted to hear, it's nixed and so are you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look below your management level. If you did, you'd see some things aren't working and others are exposing you to a lot of potential legal issues. Stop coddling those who don't do the work and penalizing those who do.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good place to start a career, the management does not have a plan or stucture on what need to be done.

    Cons

    Management does not care, they change employee job titles even without telling the employees. This is especially the Digital Marketing Departing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to Involve employees in their decision. They need to care for it's employees and promote from inside the company. Regular updates from management on what is happening will greatly be appreciated by the company employees who are one of the major assests that the company owns.

    Former Employee - Client Services Representative in Houston, TX

    I worked at Invesco

    Pros

    Looks good on resume, Decent starting salary, Very good benefits package and 401K, Provide lunches sporadically to encourage overtime.

    Cons

    Supervisors pick their favorites, MANDATORY OVERTIME, Strict policies, Takes about 4 years to be eligible for a supervisor position, Promotions aren't very common, very stressful work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors should be monitored to avoid picking favorites, make it easier to take time off, allow for easier promotions/raises, training program is basically pointless (should be SIGNIFICANTLY shortened) and changed to on-the-job training.

    It's an all boys network. If you're not a 50 year old white man, you will have a tough time surviving.

    I have been working at Invesco

    Pros

    The clientele is the best in the world.
    The investment centers consistently beat the markets.
    The research is top notch.
    Very good compensation levels.

    Cons

    Management is taking years to turn the company around.
    People have no clear career path.
    Too many people from before the turn around are staying with the firm, slowing things down.
    "Well connected" people get promotions over smart people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the bureaucracy that dominates the old Amvescap/Invesco culture.
    Hire and promote more minorities and women.
    Provide career paths to every employee.

    Not the place for talented

    Pros

    Flexible timings and facility to work from home

    Cons

    They always talk about meritocracy. But this is not the place for the talented.
    In most of the cases you work under global managers. But your fate will be decided by the local managers who even does not know what you are working on. As long as you obey and salute them you will be promoted and rewarded.
    Some leads even does not have basic knowledge of what they are working.
    This is the place for persons who want to relax and enjoy the facilities (Gim, indoor sports, free snacks etc.,)
    It is not the place for learning new technologies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no use of 360 degree feedback if managers have freedom to choose set of employees to review their performance

    I worked at Invesco

    Pros

    I didn't find anything advantageous working in Invesco.

    Cons

    People(Management and co-workers) dont bother about employees concern. There is no much work but you will be highly paid. There is no respect for employees opinion. Offshore managers give a different image about the off shore team and their concerns and their work. On shore people(most of them being managers) want their off shore team to complete complex tasks in less time and your team lead will only communicate this to you, no help given to you. When the task isn't completed it's total blame game. The person who took up task at the end of the day feels as though he is fit for nothing. You are not given the work you like to do. You will be forced to do things which you are not interested. Basically it's a place where there is nothing much happening related to technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your employees. They have a lot more concerns. As a company to be successful the employees too have to be successful and if it doesn't happen more and more employees(who have passion towards technology and can not simply accept everything which comes to their plate) are sure to move away. At the end of the day by working in Invesco employees to have to be benefited with the knowledge they gain.
