Treading Water

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Invesco full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWell respected name in the asset management industr. Invesco provides an intelligent work environment with knowledgable coworkers. I felt that coworkers were collaborative in projects.

ConsInternal jockying for limited promotions was frustrating. On the whole there was no clear path to promotion or advancement. Pay was significantly less than other asset managers.

Advice to Senior ManagementIntegrate the different businesses through a coherent strategy.

A great place to work gone bad.

Customer Service Manager (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Invesco full-time for more than 10 years

ProsSalary was above market rate, and our small group was excellent. Many friendships made.

ConsCompany worked its employees to the bone, with little to no recognition. After the AIM/Invesco merger, the Invesco IT management was incredibly poor. No respect to their employees, which in turn caused everyone to work with blinders on.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop managing to the bottom line. Let the employees do their thing! You had a great group of extremely talented people, however now most have left or been laid off. Marty Flanagan is trying to keep the ship afloat at all costs, and those costs have removed wheat made the company strong to begin with - its employees. Too bad.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Solid company w/ nice benefits, but was a better company to work for in the past

Operations Representative (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Invesco full-time for more than a year

ProsIn the Operations department, there are options to work from home a few days a wee and have a flexible schedule. You also get 3 weeks of vacation in your first year.

ConsThe office location can be a pain to get to no matter where you are coming from in the morning. Some of the management lack people skills, so when they are talking to the group, or individually, you have to have a thick skin.

Overall, great company to work for.

Desktop Services Analyst (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Invesco full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAside from being one of the leading investment companies in the world, Invesco is striving towards staying on the cutting edge of technology.

ConsMy personal experience has been that talent isn't truly recognized and skill sets aren't fully utilized.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want more loyal employees, reward them for their hard effort and dedication accordingly. Too many empty promises or wishful hopes lower moral and loyalty.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fortune 500 companies to get on your resume

Fund Accountant (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

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 Senior ManagementThey 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?!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
