    Pros

    More employee oriented than some. Quality management structure. Good top level transparency. Good career opportunities.

    Cons

    Company began major restructuring under CEO who joined in 2006. There has been and will continue to be above average transitioning of employee locations, organizational structure and so forth and the company continues to move (correctly) towards a globally functional organization.

    I worked at Invesco as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Some people in management were fantastic, somewhat flexible work environment. Pay was not terrible, and benefits were mediocre. The hours are typically very relaxed and the work is not difficult.

    Cons

    Some people in management were absolutely terrible and ruined the experience for everyone. I found that they had a great reputation at our school, but that was for the finance division. The accounting departments aren't nearly as enticing. Salary wasn't competitive and I would not go to work there again. I would say if you are ambitious and are wanting to move up it would take years to do so here. The work is not very challenging and when they don't hire enough people the hours can be terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be nice to your employees! Some management are amazing, but they are few and far between. The rest, they can be rude and ruin your career.

    Pros

    Learn a lot from the industry. This will look good on a resume and for future employers.

    Cons

    Understaff, hard to move up unless you know how to play 'the game'. There's a lot of favorites in our dept. it's who you know not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees more incentives maybe they'll work a lot longer instead of leaving within 2 years.

    Pros

    Great Experience for recent grads - Learn a ton

    Cons

    Workload is extreme. Management does not care about staff - I know this because I have a neighbor in management. Staff turnover is constant. Compensation is well below industry standards but this is part of their strategy - hire tons of recent grads for cheap and they get the necessary "experience needed" for every job they wanted. It is definitely a good place to start but the second you can leave, do it.

    Also, they don't promote from within. Period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have none. It is like talking to a brick wall.

    Pros

    I worked with a few great people.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to move up, it took me years. Team leads and supervisors all seem as though they hate their jobs, which made things harder on us. Lots of attitude and ego here, and there shouldn't be. Everyone is supposed to be available to "help" yet the dodge phone calls or answer annoyed at you for calling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what you should. You know the job ISNT easy, they admit all the time but yer the pay still sucks. Hire better team leads and sups.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience in asset management industry

    Cons

    Instead of weeding out bottom 10%, they annually weed out top tenured people. It's frustrating to see long-timers leaving year after year for no reason other than tenure & associated pay. Get experience but don't plan on growing your career here.
