    Pros

    lots of opportunity for bonus, and for additional movement.

    Cons

    heavy "favorites" politics, little room given for training of employees that were merged in. Lower management was receptive to our request for help and additional training, but middle and upper level management was only concerned with telling us what a wonderful company we had joined, and blaming us for the failures of their oversight in the merger. Over 70% of the acquired talent was terminated within 6 months of the merger completion... and turnover with Invesco has always been high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please focus more on mentoring employees who want to do their job... and assisting those who are floundering.

    I worked at Invesco as a contractor

    Pros

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

    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.

    Former Employee - Portfolio Management in Houston, TX

    I worked at Invesco full-time (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?
