    Good company and good people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits including paid time off and 401k plan. Nice place to learn the business including in-house training resources.

    ConsCompensation is low and opportunity for advancement varies by department. Employee manager experience is not consistent. Internal departmental communication needs improvement. Very political environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider employee benefits like: day care, flex-time or telecommuting.

    Great for new grads

    Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsLearn a lot from the industry. This will look good on a resume and for future employers.

    ConsUnderstaff, hard to move up unless you know how to play 'the game'. There's a lot of favorites in our dept. it's who you know not what you know.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees more incentives maybe they'll work a lot longer instead of leaving within 2 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeing a success invest. mgr. does not translate to effective business and personnel mgmt. at the invest. center level.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Growing company with growth issues.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsBenefits are comparable to other large corporations. Company 401K match one of the best.

    ConsCompany silos create many bridges to gap, stifling office politics, and a large, crippling bureaucracy that's often detrimental to employee morale. At least one C-Level executive needs to polish his presentation and speaking skills. Women are under-represented in key management rolls. Ageism is evident.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHappy employees make happy investors, not the other way around.

    Truly care about their clients and have an extremely stable investment philosophy.

    Underperforming compared to competitors.

    Management has taken a turn for the worse

    Portfolio Management (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsLarge diversified firm so they won't mess up too much. Overseas assets making up for the poor investment results in the US.

    ConsThey really aren't interested in improving investment performance. All the emphaisis is on the ETF business and they are starving the mutual funds. They force out people in the 50's.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave you thought about why your best younger salespeople and money managers don't stick around? Maybe because Invesco makes a habit of firing people as soon as the hit the age of 50 or 55.
    Isn't it amazing that no one gets hired above the age of 50?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Resume booster...not enough pay

    Client Service Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsYou gain great relevant experience and there's much opportunity to move up within the company.

    ConsThe pay is not reflective of the amount of work you have to put in.
