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

    Analyst (Former Employee) Houston, TX

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

    ConsVery '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 Senior ManagementLook 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management

    Senior Business Analyst/Project Manager (Former Employee) Houston, TX

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement 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.

    Learned that a call center is not the job for me.

    Client Services Representative (Former Employee) Houston, TX

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

    ConsSupervisors 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 Senior ManagementSupervisors 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.

    US Institutional Sales (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

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

    ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementEliminate 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

    Senior Specialist (Former Employee) Hyderābād (India)

    ProsFlexible timings and facility to work from home

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

    Very Very Bad place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI didn't find anything advantageous working in Invesco.

    ConsPeople(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 Senior ManagementPlease 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.

    A merit-free organization characterized by high professional turnover and weak management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInvesco offers many jobs in the investment profession in locations where there are not many similar jobs such as Houston, Louisville, and Atlanta.

    ConsThe two most critical parts of an investment management company are investments (what a surprise) and sales. None of the upper management have any experience in either area. Additionally, the firm doesn't have an overall Chief Investment Officer (CIO) and doesn't even have one for the US operations. All you need to know is that. In the US, the firm's equity groups have "group CIOs." This clearly isn't working and everyone inside the firm knows it. There is a reason all but three of their mutual funds, stocks or bonds, were in net outflows as of the end of June. And, they have generally been in net outflows for years. Why? Because performance suffers from the high turnover of portfolio managers owing to a lack of an investment culture. The sales side is little better. Following the acquisition of Van Kampen in 2010, management has created chaos in the sales staff. As a result, week after week some of the best sales people and those simply looking for a reasonable professional life are leaving Invesco. Management doesn't care because they simply don't get it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImmediately hire and empower a true equity CIO for the US. Morale suffers from the abusive nature of some of the group CIOs, particularly in US Growth Equities. It's time to consider that maybe the problem isn't that professionals join the firm and somehow become idiots deserving of being fired. The problem with investment performance is the turnover of professionals and the turnover is caused by a corrosive, unprofessional atmosphere.
