    Good company overall

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Manager  in  Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting work, salary, great benefits, varied projects (depends on department), non-management have considerable flexibility in schedules, culture committees in some locations do a good job of creating fun events

    Cons

    Cultures clash in some areas from acquisitions, hierarchical, too many things going on at once (can't focus on getting something done right - too busy trying to check things off the list, competing priorities)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a million things half-good doesn't make a great company. Listen to the people who do the work. They can tell you how to get better.

    Pros

    After my first 8 months at Invesco, I don't have one negative thing to say. All of the employees are extremely driven and talented. Upper management is very approachable and truly want to develop your career, rather than simply put your skills to use. The company culture is fantastic, and pay/benefits are well above the industry average in my group.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say about Invesco. Very pleased with the company's commitment to better its employees. Excelent benefits and a great place to grow your career.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and laid back managers.
    Very positive atmosphere and enthusiastic employees.
    They care about your learning experience instead of just getting as much work as they can out of you.

    Cons

    Honestly there wasn't much of a downside to working there, it was a great experience and it got me jump-started into my career

    Invesco has a great work environment and if you have good work ethics, you will do well with this company.

    Pros

    The people, both management and employees. Many departments within Invesco truly care about their employees and customer service is a top priority.

    Cons

    Invesco is a very large company, so it cab be easy for things to get overlooked if you don't follow up constantly. It can sometimes be hard to get some of the less important tasks accomplished because of the amount of projects ongoing at once.

    Above average company to work for.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Great vacation package - 15 days for new employees, 7 sick days and 2 personal days
    Good 401(k) contribution
    Lots of professional development opportunities
    Large company that values promotion from within.

    Cons

    Slightly lower than average salaries and because of weak economy in 2009 raises were limited.
    You could make more money working for a larger investment company, but low cost of living in Houston makes up for it.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good with this company and they like to have company functions throughout the year for the employees. On the job training is handled well with this company. A lot of people have stayed with the company long-term. Nice professional culture and environment.

    Cons

    There may be more contractors working at the company versus permanent employees. For accountant positions must be CPA driven or you will lose out on permanent opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more permanent opportunities versus contract.
