    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

    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.

    If you are recruited out of college to work as a client service rep w/ invesco aim, do not take the job.

    Pros

    If you do not have a college degree, it isn't bad money for a call center. There is a money purchase plan in place which pays 6% annually, but you are not fully vested until you have been with the company 4 years. It also has a 401k in place which matches up to 5%.

    Cons

    Very poor promotion opportunities; low pay for anyone w/ a college degree. It is nearly impossible to get vacation time when you want it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on what type of employee you should be recruiting for a specific decision. If you recruit college grads for a client service position, and fail to provide advancement opportunities, you will not retain talent.

    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 Management

    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

    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.
