    I worked at Invesco as a contractor

    Pros

    Very flexible scheduling. Very team oriented. Room for lateral growth. Nice office facilities. Great location

    Cons

    Glass ceiling. Especially once you reach mid-level management. Not much growth past mid-level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the analysis work. Use less paper. Pay more. Provide more work from home opportunities.

    I worked at Invesco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large diversified firm so they won't mess up too much. Overseas assets making up for the poor investment results in the US.

    Cons

    They really aren't interested in improving investment performance. All the emphaisis is on the ETF business and they are starving the mutual funds. They force out people in the 50's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have you thought about why your best younger salespeople and money managers don't stick around? Maybe because Invesco makes a habit of firing people as soon as the hit the age of 50 or 55.
    Isn't it amazing that no one gets hired above the age of 50?

    I worked at Invesco full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Well respected name in the asset management industr. Invesco provides an intelligent work environment with knowledgable coworkers. I felt that coworkers were collaborative in projects.

    Cons

    Internal jockying for limited promotions was frustrating. On the whole there was no clear path to promotion or advancement. Pay was significantly less than other asset managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate the different businesses through a coherent strategy.

    I worked at Invesco full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary was above market rate, and our small group was excellent. Many friendships made.

    Cons

    Company worked its employees to the bone, with little to no recognition. After the AIM/Invesco merger, the Invesco IT management was incredibly poor. No respect to their employees, which in turn caused everyone to work with blinders on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop managing to the bottom line. Let the employees do their thing! You had a great group of extremely talented people, however now most have left or been laid off. Marty Flanagan is trying to keep the ship afloat at all costs, and those costs have removed wheat made the company strong to begin with - its employees. Too bad.
