    Pros

    Reasonable benefits and comfortable work environment. Worldwide presence in the financial services industry is helpful. Company has discontinued many products or services which were not strong suits.

    Cons

    Personal development program somewhat limited. Too many changes over the years has taken away familiarity of what company is about from the investing public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many changes make it hard for clients to know what company stands for. It is important to see what customers are looking for before additional changes are made.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Invesco Aim is the benefits, location, free parking and free cokes. Being that Invesco AIM is a part of the financial investment business it has taken a beating from how the financial industry has fallen.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides of working at Invesco Aim is lack of room for career advancement, downsizing and being a subsidiary of a larger company. The company is ran like a true "corporate company". The initial founders ran the company like a family owned business and you could see the difference in the environment at the company. Now it's strictly all about the bottom line. The employees do not come first as they did in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Involve the people who actually do the work everyday.

    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 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

    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.

    INVESCO AIM Houston could be what it was in the '90's under Bauer's leadership and vision.

    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.

    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.
