    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    Exceptional benefits and bonus structure. Great place to slack off till retirement. Great work life balance. Plenty of promotional swag to last a lifetime.

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities, no learning growth opportunity, no salary increase, too many insecure old timers whom not willing to listen to new ideas or change. Mediocrity is the norm. Enable hostile workers.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of at least 2 layers of middle management. Hold people accountable instead of letting incompetent old timers management blame the staffs. Take actions and treat complaints seriously - Management and HR did nothing for 3 years and counting with varies complaints by multiple people and department about the same toxic employee that bully people which the company in turn enable the hostile work place. Stop being wasteful on swag/traffic and invest those $ to employee growth.

    Pros

    Opportunity - lots of promoting from within for those who are passionate about what they do and strive to be the best

    Cons

    Pay doesn't tend to be the highest. They are competitive, and when you factor in benefits, work life balance, etc, the pay is very good. However, if money is your main priority, you may be able to find places that will pay you more for the same job

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
