    Pros

    Great working environment with open feedback between employees and management. The benefits offered are still the best I have gotten in any job.

    Cons

    Even though I loved working at AIM, there wasn't anymore room for advancement and didn't see myself working in that role for long term.

    Not helpful for long term career growth

    Pros

    Theoretical but seldom realized 37.5-hour workweek. 6% immediately vested 401k match. Generous sick days (7), vacation days (15), personal days (2). An additional week of vacation can be purchased if desired. Hourly pay including overtime rate. Some of the people were a joy to work with. Work life balance is good if it is not during busy season.

    Cons

    This review is in reference to the tax department in Houston, Texas only. If you are considering working there I highly suggest you reconsider. You can spend many years working in the tax department there, like I did, specializing in the taxation of regulated investment companies and then one day you will wake up dissatisfied and make the realization that you are geographically trapped. The reason: your experience is only applicable to a small number of companies that are required to file form 1120RIC. Newsflash! You are in Houston (O&G central) so if you want to change employers you will have to move to the one of the centers of the investment industry like Boston or New York. I had to practically start my career over when I changed companies because other employers did not value the skills I learned at my many years at Invesco.

    Management realizes staff and management are trapped so its strategy was to underpay and just keep hiring inexperienced people to replace those that left. Advancement opportunities were very rare especially if you did not fit the “type” desired. Upper management of the tax department was exclusively Caucasian. The vast majority of middle management was non-Caucasian. Draw your own conclusions.

    The department is behind in technology compared to its peers.

    The department is perpetually understaffed. The talented are overworked and soon flee and the mediocre build a home without fear of being terminated.

    Health insurance is now only limited to high deductible health plans.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay. Increase your communication and presence with your team. Increase team building exercises. Create a formal training program with mentoring/coaching.

  3. Great experience gained, but horrible middle management

    Pros

    Fabulous training that will serve a lifetime. Great recognition for employees, such as anniversaries, parties, etc. learned how not to treat people.

    Cons

    Worst middle-management I've ever seen. Bonuses and raises determined by middle managers, rather than merit. Staff was overworked, with extremely rigid time-off policies.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in management consultants to train management soft skills, for these were severely lacking.

    Pros

    Good incentives, friendly, casual culture. This company has a very nice, physical environment. I enjoyed the years I spent working there.

    Cons

    A bit rigid! It was a little difficult for me to climb the ladder there, so I left to explore other options.

    Advice to Management

    You have great leadership, but some get offended if asked a question they can't answer. I think your leadership should be trained to welcome all kinds of inquiries; they should not be threatened by them.

  6. Great people / OK Managers.

    Pros

    Offered tons of benefits and opportunities for employees to make it a fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Compensation was average. In just the short time I was there it went from one big family to a more corporate atmosphere...which took away some of the charm of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that compensation packages are competitive and make sure managers are trained to be managers.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a great training regime, training gets you up to speed about your duties so you do not feel inadequate. Also, their networking between various departments is up to snuff. Various ways of interacting outside of work including through sports and community service.

    Cons

    Literally everything is graded, from your work to the way you stay organized. Its high school over again. Also do not dare speak up against authority even for blatantly wrong decisions. It will cost you your job, they have no qualms about letting people go.

    Advice to Management

    You have to review the system you have in place for client services, no one feels safe with their jobs.
