    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.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (more than an 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.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, interesting work, salary, great benefits, varied projects (depends on department), non-management have considerable flexibility in schedules, culture committees in some locations do a good job of creating fun events

    Cons

    Cultures clash in some areas from acquisitions, hierarchical, too many things going on at once (can't focus on getting something done right - too busy trying to check things off the list, competing priorities)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a million things half-good doesn't make a great company. Listen to the people who do the work. They can tell you how to get better.

    Pros

    After my first 8 months at Invesco, I don't have one negative thing to say. All of the employees are extremely driven and talented. Upper management is very approachable and truly want to develop your career, rather than simply put your skills to use. The company culture is fantastic, and pay/benefits are well above the industry average in my group.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to say about Invesco. Very pleased with the company's commitment to better its employees. Excelent benefits and a great place to grow your career.

    Relaxed environment and laid back managers.
    Very positive atmosphere and enthusiastic employees.
    They care about your learning experience instead of just getting as much work as they can out of you.

    Honestly there wasn't much of a downside to working there, it was a great experience and it got me jump-started into my career
