    Pros

    Pay is probably above average with very good benefits and work life balance. Company has lot of great and competent people.

    Cons

    Typical corporate bureaucracy. This may limit career growth. As of when I left, all personal trades need pre-clearance due to legacy legal agreement.

    Pros

    Company seems to be interested in going in the right direction, has good benefits, and pays reasonably well. They have a good financial status.

    Cons

    Seems like people are always on the run and not too friendly.

    Advice to Management

    The Good to Great program has holes in it.... They want to measure everything, but they are not thinking about the volume of tickets and volume of project tasks a person handles. Also, stats. don't tell everything. One ticket can be more complicated to work on than another ticket. But they want to put everything into matrix and start measuring every team's performance. Success is not just about more for less. Its about people, culture, and joyful atmosphere. If the only thought is about "more with less" and happiness flies out the door, then there is something wrong. We have forgotten something hugely important. That, I believe, comes through a conscious decision to create a joyful environment.... Do not promote poor health. Do not give free sodas. Encourage an environment where not only performance improvement needs are noted, but where accomplishments and good performance are not overlooked. Managers should be asked to note the positives first.... When positives are highlighted and relayed to employees, joy is created in the work environment, and people want to work harder. But if only negative is pointed out, an environment of fear is created.

    Flexible environment, great benefits.

    Cons

    The "One Percent" at its worst

    Advice to Management

    It's difficult to be motivated when you receive no pay increase but the CEO receives 13.23% (Morningstar).

    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.
