    I have been working at Invesco full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best portfolio managers work at Invesco. Not only are they good at their jobs - most are able to explain their process in English - not Finglish.

    Cons

    It is a very horizontal organization and very political. It you are not high up in the organization and don't have political connections, you don't have a chance to grow and develop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee surveys don't tell the whole story. Take the opportunity to speak to those on the lower rungs of the ladder.

    Pros

    Decent health and matching 401k

    Cons

    Consistently underpays compared to market. Little support from management for change. A$$ kissing gets advancement. Management has its own "class", worker bees aren't part of that culture and suffer. Little to no training to improve your job skissl

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move into the modern era. Training and pay go a long way. Weed out managers who are promoted way beyond their abilities.
