    Pros

    Good training budget. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Invesco's philosophy is to squeeze every drop out of their employees while paying them way below industry average. They rely on off shoring as a way to maximize profit, yet that never trickles down to its poor IT employees. They also use of shoring as a control mechanism for their employees, constantly threatening them and reminding them that they can be outsourced. This is a terrible company, unless you work in their Indian office.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the meaning of loyalty.

    Management in UK is only worried about other UK nationals. Bad environment and HR will not help even when you have legit complaint about UK management

    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 Management

    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.

    Not a place that encourages employees to excel. Those who don't do, get ahead.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are OK. If you're hourly, they don't expect you to work much overtime. Some of the people are really great.

    Cons

    Very 'lord of the flies' culture. Eat or be eaten. Management allows behavior that wouldn't fly at other companies. Not much in the way of innovation and if you do speak up, if it's not what the boss wanted to hear, it's nixed and so are you.

    Advice to Management

    Look below your management level. If you did, you'd see some things aren't working and others are exposing you to a lot of potential legal issues. Stop coddling those who don't do the work and penalizing those who do.

    Pros

    Good place to start a career, the management does not have a plan or stucture on what need to be done.

    Cons

    Management does not care, they change employee job titles even without telling the employees. This is especially the Digital Marketing Departing.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to Involve employees in their decision. They need to care for it's employees and promote from inside the company. Regular updates from management on what is happening will greatly be appreciated by the company employees who are one of the major assests that the company owns.

    Pros

    Looks good on resume, Decent starting salary, Very good benefits package and 401K, Provide lunches sporadically to encourage overtime.

    Cons

    Supervisors pick their favorites, MANDATORY OVERTIME, Strict policies, Takes about 4 years to be eligible for a supervisor position, Promotions aren't very common, very stressful work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors should be monitored to avoid picking favorites, make it easier to take time off, allow for easier promotions/raises, training program is basically pointless (should be SIGNIFICANTLY shortened) and changed to on-the-job training.

    Pros

    The clientele is the best in the world. The investment centers consistently beat the markets. The research is top notch. Very good compensation levels.

    Cons

    Management is taking years to turn the company around. People have no clear career path. Too many people from before the turn around are staying with the firm, slowing things down. "Well connected" people get promotions over smart people.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the bureaucracy that dominates the old Amvescap/Invesco culture. Hire and promote more minorities and women. Provide career paths to every employee.

    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    free Cabs, free snacks but may be gone, Sr management wants to save costs., On site is not a blessing its pain, No per diem paid, Lots of questions asked for travel expense, Finance depts expects you to eat cheap food and save cost for company while traveling they don't trust employees expenses. Typical baniya kind of mentality. Very In-Human policies and processes.

    Cons

    Many now with change in Leadership, Sr Management wants their puppets to run the show, Employee are not supposed to raise voices, No ethical values left, Inhuman processes, Managers do not have the ability to balance work load only few get most of the work done while rest fool around. Sr management has keep your boss happy kind of culture, People with no ethics are at management positions. Egoistic people at top level. There is severe knowledge drain happening in the company right now and no one seems to care for it.

    Advice to Management

    It was a pleasant place to work for till 2013, After departure of our fist country head things have gone worse. UN-necessary policies. The current leaderships trusts people who listen to them and not to people who genuinely think about and make it a wonderful place to work. At this rate Lot of high quality work will go to US rather.
