    Professional Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and company values. Leadership was okay but there are definitely worse out there

    ConsLack of communication between groups within the same department. One or two gatekeepers with all the information.

    Very Good, except for constant management changes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat people, smart, great pay and benefits.

    ConsWhen other companies were brought into the group, and managers from those were brought to this division, the company began to deteriorate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't kill the golden goose

    Treading water

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsGood work/life balance.
    Good people, collegial environment.
    Good benefits.
    Firm emphasizes high ethical standards and tough legal compliance rules.

    ConsSalaries well below industry average. Best talent jumps at first opportunity.
    Name not really a resume builder.
    Company was built by acquisitions so still very different cultures between offices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLots of dead weight walking around at senior levels. Retire some MDs and SMDs to open up compensation potential for mid-level employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very Very Strong Earnings; Very Very bad pay for employees

    Portfolio Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Prosbenefits are decent and the day-to-day work can be interesting if you can get on some good projects and you truly enjoy the asset management business.

    ConsCOMPENSATION, Stealth layoffs, political culture

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay for performance (you say you do, but you clearly don't)

    Director

    Director (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsSolid product suite, global reach, and well known brand

    ConsFocus on retail side of the business and lack on focus on high-revenue potential of institutional business. Consulting firms (McKinsey) with limited knowledge of the industry or internal structure running key projects directly reporting to Executive Mngt. The recommendations are all "white paper" or "metric" based; limits the input from experienced staff, lowers competitive advantages, and doesn't leverage the resource in place. The few promotions that happen are the McKinsey consultants coming on full time. It's disappointing, because Invesco is great firm with great potential and they should leverage the dedicated employees who have been with the firm for years (avg of 10+ years) and not empower consultants fresh out of college to run the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower your employees, leverage their experience, and go after the competition. Do everything you can to take advantage of their knowledge - it's untapped wealth that can be a considerable growth engine. If you ignore that or promote novices above these resources, you will lose their knowledge and ultimately these resources (which has been happening for 2-3 years now).

    Good place to work.

    Applications Development Management (Current Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsReally good compensation and it is an interesting industry.

    ConsLarge corporate atmosphere, some feeling of being disconnected from the company as a whole.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are doing a great job except for the typical large corporation approach of sugar coating every message.

    A reasonably good job experience at a pretty good company.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDiverse set of business areas to work in, generally well motivated co-workers, management that at least give a strong appearance of trying to communicate effectively.

    ConsBenefits package being cut back over time (mostly medical coverage), inconsistent compensation structures in similar areas, awkward organizational structures in some areas without adequate solicitation of feedback from employees in a position to give good advice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to, and seek the counsel of, senior individuals in various product areas in order to develop the best organizational structures; rely less on outside consulting firms.

    Leadership lacks institutional experience

    Institutional Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsThe scope of product offerings is literally almost second to none. Distressed, real estate, quant equity, bank loans, etc. No other firm has wide a unique set a products to offer clients.

    ConsAll of the portfolio management teams are there through acquisitions, so none of them want to work with Invesco sales, let alone other asset management teams.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo out and hire a leader with US Institutional experience to run the company, before it's too late.

    Good company for experienced workers but not for entry level candidates.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat name to have on the resume and interesting work on a daily basis. They also sponsor certain certificate programs.

    ConsOverall benefits is below industry standards. Leadership and training is weak and the ability to move to other groups does not exist.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would not recommend starting off a career at Invesco. People with more experience will find the company a much better fit than entry level candidates. I think training and employee growth should be more of a focus.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
