    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Compensation 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 ManagementAdvice

    Consider employee benefits like: day care, flex-time or telecommuting.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Understaff, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more incentives maybe they'll work a lot longer instead of leaving within 2 years.

    Pros

    Great people, comp. is competative, hours are reasonable, corp. culture is inspiring and supportive, advancement opportunities

    Understaffed in some areas. Lack of definition for job descriptions/roles...seems like it is constantly in flux...Mgmt can lack conviction for their own views

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees make happy investors, not the other way around.

    Former Employee - Portfolio Management in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Portfolio Management in Houston, TX

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Have 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?
