    I have been working at Invesco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with on a day to day basis. Very few people with egos at the firm. Good all around place

    Cons

    Tuition reimbursement is very light so for those who want to go to graduate school most will be on you. More of the benefits money goes to 401k to make up for it

    Pros

    Great pay. Good development of sales staff depending on who your manager or external partner is.

    Cons

    Very numbers driven, they care more about how many calls you make more than how many actual sales you make. People get ahead by being "yes" men. Some sales managers has never had any sales experience so after your first phone call, you will have more experience than your manager.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    401k contribution match is really good

    Cons

    people have a bad habit calling out when short staffed, AM's come in late setting the example for the staff to do the same, makes it hard to be productive before lunch

    Advice to Management

    hold people accountable on when they are supposed to come into work, cut down on these month long vacation approvals that don't allow other people off, or jam up our reporting cycles because we are understaffed and people start calling out sick because they get burnt out. makes the situation worse

    Pros

    Great Location in Midtown Atlanta

    Cons

    Corporate Security & Compliance seems to have a history of mysteriously and suddenly finding adverse information on candidates background checks AFTER they have already started, and escorting them out of the building and terminating employment, while refusing to discuss the matter, or disclose the information that they allegedly found. This happened to me only after 2 days, and the company refused to discuss or disclose the information that they claim precluded me from employment. It happened to 4 different consultants in one week. Very funny considering I have no criminal record, and was truthful about ALL employment and education listed on application. I paid for my own background test, which came back 100% clean, and the company still refuses to give any information. Seems to possibly be some discriminatory practices going on.

    Advice to Management

    Show some integrity, and do thorough research before just terminating an employee. In this age of technology, erroneous information is probable and very common. Give an individual the opportunity to know what is on his/her background that may be questionable, and also the opportunity to research and explain any misinformation. This is after-all someone's livelihood.
