    I worked at Invesco Aim

    Pros

    work life balance and low stress atmosphere.... 37.5 hour work weeks and 3 weeks vacation + 2 float holidays, 10 paid holidays, and 7 sick days starting on day one. Aim also has pretty good health benefits as well as 401k w/ 4% match and 6% MPP contribution each year. Also AIM likes to promote people from within.

    Cons

    salaries are way below market, unless your an analyst or portfolio manager. Raises are minimal, I have never received more that a 1-2% cost of living increase. Not much job stability, there have been four layoffs during my short four year tenure.

    I worked at Invesco Aim full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Invesco Aim

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 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!!!!
