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

    Pros

    Invesco will give you what you ask for, and what you prove you are capable of. Of course, it is a large company and moves largely as one would expect for its AUM and employee count - but where you show talent, they will let you run.

    Cons

    It is a big company, and thus always squeezing efficiencies out. Expect them to watch the nickles and pennies as aggressively as the dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really only wrote this review as I stumbled onto some reviews that I did not think were fair on a job site. They are good people, and treat you fairly. Work hard, show talent, and you will be rewarded. If you are disappointed, try the mirror first.

    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

    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
