Pros

Higher than average pay. Pleasant work environment. As long as a mediocre employee keeps his nose clean, he has a job for life.

Cons

Many back office and I.T. jobs being outsourced to India. Talented staff find employment elsewhere due to job stagnation. The result is a company staffed by a majority of long term employees with no ambition/desire to grow just doing the minimum to collect a paycheck. The company has cancelled many inexpensive low-mid staff perks while Senior Management fly expensive Net Jets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Play hardball and send mediocre employees packing. Drop the policy of requiring managers to provide justification why every vacant job position SHOULDN'T be outsourced to India. Cancel the companies NetJet contract and fly commercial. Restore the policy of requiring staff to rate their manager's performance.

    I worked at Invesco Aim

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, nice non-managerial staff.

    Cons

    Incompetent management, not proficient in 'cutting out the fat', too cautious, employee satisfaction (regardless of incompetence) valued more than the growth and progression of the business. Poor base salary. Poor performance review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what it is to be an effective manager. Offer extra education or hire people people who have proven track record in successful management. Hire COMPENTENT managers!!!!

    Pros

    Young company and good people. Good benefits, excellent retirement and paid time off.

    Cons

    Political games and in-fighting are bad; creating mistrust, a lack of information sharing and a stifling enviornment. Young company going through typical growing pains in transition. Middle management is young and energetic but lack experience. Seasoned grey hairs could really make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on investment performance. Everything else will follow. Branding and global reach efforts will never compensate for average/poor investment performance. Lower investment expenses; your not giving the company a chance.
