    I have been working at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    - Provide free parking
    - Good amount of vacation/sick/personal days

    Cons

    -You are required to work 37.5 hours week to be full time but the workload is so much that you have to go overtime and managers don't like to give any overtime. This means you work extra hours but can not put in all those hours. The way of dividing work at each level is very unfair.
    - HR is unfriendly and doesn't even help you with HR related questions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They expect the new hire to have CPA license but doesn't compensate for it. Management doesn't have CPA and how can you expect lower level to have CPA?!!

    Good place to work if you want to be in Finance, but not a good place to work if you want generous pay.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    --Supportive work environment.
    --Good management.
    --Good benefits.
    --Good employees.
    --It's a good place to work if you want to be in the world of Finance.

    Cons

    Specifically in the Houston office, unless you are high up in investments, executive management or senior management, the company is not very generous with its pay/bonuses. This is mostly due to the fact that the only major financial institutions in Houston are AIG and Invesco. As such, since competition for highly skilled finance jobs are low, Invesco can pay highly skilled employees less.

    Also, the bonus structure is designed to pick and choose which employees management want to reward. When the bonus structure was explained to me, it sounded as complicated as the tax code. With many companies, there is a flat percentage given to employees and another discretionary percentage depending on performance. At Invesco, the entire bonus is relatively discretionary. The company may do really well, but if management does not think that you performed very well, you may very well not make a bonus at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's o.k. to keep the base pay relatively low, but be much more generous with the bonuses. If the CEO gets a 30% bonus, give every employee a 30% bonus as the employees helped produce the results of the company. Morale drops considerably when the CEO gets a 30% bonus on 14 million in compensation and the employees get only 5% bonus on $40,000 in compensation.
