    I have been working at Invesco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Real Estate is a strong performing segment of the company, and the industry is very dynamic with a wide variety of roles. There is opportunity for advancement, although it is limited to real estate only as the Invesco HQ (and thus the majority of jobs) is located in Atlanta. Despite the culture cons listed below, turnover is low. Work/life balance is reasonable for middle and back office roles. Customer-facing, transaction, and portfolio management roles involve heavy travel and frequent meetings.

    Cons

    Office culture is polite, but not particularly open or friendly. A bit bland - not bad, not great either. Teams are silo'd and do not interact much despite the open office plan. Corporate roles staffed in the Dallas office are managed by Atlanta-based managers, but also receive significant input from Dallas-based stakeholders, which creates some Office Space multiple manager issues .

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a workplace that is more engaging and exciting for your employees. Provide more opportunities for socializing / team-building and hire managers that value personal development over technical expertise.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rank & file employees are for the most part are sincere, good, hard-working folks.

    Cons

    Senior management only focused on selves, controlling costs and reducing expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell us that our people are our most important resource and then not be competitive with regards to compensation, benefits, training, or career advancement. Laying off senior employees and replacing them with junior employees might help reduce expenses but actually hurts overall productivity.

    Pros

    Great culture, never get fired, good advancement opportunities, good/smart people, growing company.

    Cons

    There are very few cons. The only thing I would change is the compensation type. We get huge bonuses and smaller salaries. I would rather have a large salary with a smaller bonus.

    Pros

    The people and the atmosphere at Invesco were great. I worked at the Dallas office, it is a great company to work for and as an intern I was able to learn a ton about the company as well as being thouroghly involved.

    Cons

    Although I was able to interact with several of the other groups inside the company there were server all others that I wish I could have had more of an interaction with.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed the fact that the management reached out to the interns in an attempt to learn from them and hope they continue this.

    Pros

    Awesome culture, wonderful people to work with, growing company with great benefits.

    Cons

    Maybe improve work life balance by being more flexible, but really think that depends on department/supervisor

    Pros

    Flexible hours, helpful people and family oriented.

    Cons

    Unpleasant demeanor and attitudes from other departments. Poor insurance benefits. Unprofessional in work correspondence.

    Advice to Management

    Hiring personnel look down upon the idea of hiring contract workers they don't know, even if qualified, but prefer to hire their friends who are unqualified.

    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 Management

    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 a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are comparable to other large corporations. Company 401K match one of the best.

    Cons

    Company silos create many bridges to gap, stifling office politics, and a large, crippling bureaucracy that's often detrimental to employee morale. At least one C-Level executive needs to polish his presentation and speaking skills. Women are under-represented in key management rolls. Ageism is evident.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees make happy investors, not the other way around.
