    Pros

    Great Associates, team work is exceptional.

    Cons

    Management cares only about reaching numbers versus caring about coaching and mentoring. Too much overtime. There is not any balance of work and life. Upper management is out of touch of how associates' needs and desires. Traffic is horrible getting to work. No opportunity growth for advancement. Low pay If there is advancement, it is based on favoritism versus merit.

    Advice to Management

    Need to know how associates do their jobs versus relying on job numbers to discipline.

    Pros

    Overall, people are pleasant. Depending on the department in which you work, it determines the work-life balance and atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very political. Several individuals are in management that 1. shouldn't be, 2. are in the role because of who they know and how long they have been with the firm, and 3. have mastered passing the buck. It's unfortunate that this is such a large organization and the opportunities to move for career growth is very limited. This is evidenced by the limited positions posted. If you have an issue with your manager and it is reported, be prepared for life to be difficult. You realize the true atmosphere of your department when employees from outside of the department communicate what they see and hear. For a multi billion dollar firm, having a high deductible health insurance plan as the only option is EXPENSIVE to the employee. It may save the firm millions, but when that cuts into the finances for the employee it isn't positive. And it is difficult to swallow when the firm has healthy reported earnings.

    Advice to Management

    Executive management needs to communicate and demonstrate that there is no tolerance for senior managers and managers to be dishonest. Dishonesty of management is not only a poor reflection on the firm, department but opens the firm to liability.

    Pros

    Some really good people to work with, Good benefits in general.

    Cons

    No to place to go. Actual roles versus titles are misleading, many of those that are to be coaches are also players. New manager training is non existent. Invesco will not say no to a project or initiative, so projects end up under staffed with unrealistic timelines.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your people, Recognize where people are spread to thin, and make priority decisions, it is ok to say to no to some initiatives.

    Pros

    Some people in management were fantastic, somewhat flexible work environment. Pay was not terrible, and benefits were mediocre. The hours are typically very relaxed and the work is not difficult.

    Cons

    Some people in management were absolutely terrible and ruined the experience for everyone. I found that they had a great reputation at our school, but that was for the finance division. The accounting departments aren't nearly as enticing. Salary wasn't competitive and I would not go to work there again. I would say if you are ambitious and are wanting to move up it would take years to do so here. The work is not very challenging and when they don't hire enough people the hours can be terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your employees! Some management are amazing, but they are few and far between. The rest, they can be rude and ruin your career.

    Pros

    Base compensation and the 401K match program were both above average for the Atlanta area. The location and facilities were also fantastic.

    Cons

    The Corporate Accounting department is run by incompetent managers who would rather not know about problems (largely problems that they themselves created) than have them identified and resolved . Turnover is very high and open positions are filled with outside contractors. Long-term career growth in the Corporate Accounting department is very low given the small size of the group and the unwillingness for management to invest in the careers of their junior staff.

    Pros

    Great Experience for recent grads - Learn a ton

    Cons

    Workload is extreme. Management does not care about staff - I know this because I have a neighbor in management. Staff turnover is constant. Compensation is well below industry standards but this is part of their strategy - hire tons of recent grads for cheap and they get the necessary "experience needed" for every job they wanted. It is definitely a good place to start but the second you can leave, do it. Also, they don't promote from within. Period.

    Advice to Management

    I have none. It is like talking to a brick wall.

    Pros

    I worked with a few great people.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to move up, it took me years. Team leads and supervisors all seem as though they hate their jobs, which made things harder on us. Lots of attitude and ego here, and there shouldn't be. Everyone is supposed to be available to "help" yet the dodge phone calls or answer annoyed at you for calling.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people what you should. You know the job ISNT easy, they admit all the time but yer the pay still sucks. Hire better team leads and sups.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience in asset management industry

    Cons

    Instead of weeding out bottom 10%, they annually weed out top tenured people. It's frustrating to see long-timers leaving year after year for no reason other than tenure & associated pay. Get experience but don't plan on growing your career here.
