    Pros

    The company is looking to become a leader in the investment market. If you're looking for a place to start your career this is definitely the place.

    Cons

    IT help desk is awful. You will spend your first couple of weeks not being able to do much because you don't have access to any systems or drives. This problem will persist throughout your time here as you seek to get access to more and more systems.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some really good people to work with, Good benefits in general.

    Cons

    No to place to go. Actual roles versus titles are misleading, many of those that are to be coaches are also players. New manager training is non existent. Invesco will not say no to a project or initiative, so projects end up under staffed with unrealistic timelines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your people, Recognize where people are spread to thin, and make priority decisions, it is ok to say to no to some initiatives.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to learn the world of finance for someone that is just out of school. I thought they offered a good benefits program although benefits are not usually what someone is looking for when they just finish school.

    Cons

    My introduction to company politics, I don't know if it is any worse then other companies. In my role I found a lot of deadlines because there was not enough focus on automating but this was years ago.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good location, decent salary and benefits, good people in general.
    Strong top-level management that is moving the company forward.
    Plenty of work and very good development opportunities.

    Cons

    Often over-committed projects and highly stressful tight deadlines.
    Over past few years, decreasing transparency.
    Do not really involve rank and file in decisions or consensus building (which can often help flush out issues that management cannot foresee alone -- ala Google appraoch for example).
    Development shifts to offshore taking place, along with applications and infrastructure shifts to cloud services.
