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

    Pros

    The company provided access to a large budget, which allowed for travel, software, and learning that most smaller companies cannot match. People on other teams were often open and friendly and willing to share. Very intelligent people on other investment teams. I have never seen an organization spend so much on IT though, and that was greatly appreciated.

    Cons

    Most people were working 60-80 hours a week. Compensation is well below market. Management points fingers instead of taking responsibility for their own lack of communication and competency. Bullying and harassment were prevalent, to a point that people were often cursing at each other, but this was consistent among other teams. The environment was very political, and felt like high school, where other managers would try to create allies with other teams in a weird and uncomfortable way. People were talking behind each other's backs, and it was often appropriate to speak rudely to someone during meetings. Don't ever expect to receive a bonus and make sure severance is spelled out in your employment contract.

    Pros

    Relationships more important than intelligence and work

    Cons

    Treat employees poorly, negative work life balance and under paid, poor bonus, bullying is prevalent coulture. When I left, it was a great time in the asset management industry. I can only imagine what it would be like today.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't seem to take advice. To improve on the organization, I would make it flatter. Culture should be more open.
