    I worked at Invesco as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, culture, and colleagues!

    Cons

    The only thing I can come up with is that it might be hard to grow within the company since it's so big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Former Employee - Fund Accountant in Houston, TX

    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.

    Promotions are difficult to come by though hiring from within the firm is prevalent
    Can get political

    Current Employee - Manager in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Invesco full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Base compensation and the 401K match program were both above average for the Atlanta area. The location and facilities were also fantastic.

    Cons

    The Corporate Accounting department is run by incompetent managers who would rather not know about problems (largely problems that they themselves created) than have them identified and resolved . Turnover is very high and open positions are filled with outside contractors. Long-term career growth in the Corporate Accounting department is very low given the small size of the group and the unwillingness for management to invest in the careers of their junior staff.
