    I have been working at Invesco as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good with this company and they like to have company functions throughout the year for the employees. On the job training is handled well with this company. A lot of people have stayed with the company long-term. Nice professional culture and environment.

    Cons

    There may be more contractors working at the company versus permanent employees. For accountant positions must be CPA driven or you will lose out on permanent opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more permanent opportunities versus contract.

    Pros

    Someone on the team brings breakfast every Friday for everyone. This process is rotated every Friday

    Cons

    mandatory overtime when call volumes are high, but that's with any call center job.

    I worked at Invesco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    While I have heard it was better in the past, it was still a great place to work. Great vacation. Good Pay. Flexible hours for those that needed it.

    Cons

    People that were made managers only because of tenure, and not managerial talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    friendly work place, flexible hours, people seem to be interested with whats going on with you

    Cons

    work can be frantic at times when understaffed, allow too many of one position to take vacation at once which makes it more frantic for daily and monthly deliverables. People are allowed to get away with a I only want to do what I feel is in my direct scope of tasks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its obvious that there are a few stale employees that have advanced through attrition, and just create major pain points in the daily process. Stop looking the other and do something about it. plenty of talent there with minimal coaching and development could step up and help create smoother work flow

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

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    Unfortunately I have nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    If you work in a City like NY or SF your comp will be low and will rarely go up because corporate is based in cities with low cost of living.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should at a minimum have a Bachelor's degree. Managers who have been with the company for a long period and have been Grandfathered into their management positions without a college degree should return to an accredited university to advance their education.

    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.
