    Pros

    Has some good investment people

    Cons

    Invesco should subcontract out most of its back office operations because they won't be about to cut fees without that

    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

    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

    I worked at Invesco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is pretty competitive, not too many other choices in the financial services industry in Houston, maybe not as volatile as the oil and gas industry.

    Cons

    IT here used to be focused on delivering and supporting quality systems and building strategic relationships with key business leaders. We were good at this, and ultimately got taken for granted. Focus shifted to cost savings, "innovation" and other goofy IT trends like "Lean IT". Senior leadership in the company expected more leveraged solutions across the whole company to save money, without having the stones to mandate this to the business group leaders. They expected IT to magically make the business units agree to work together even though they had no real incentive to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on delivering and properly supporting quality IT solutions, than on whatever lame "hot trend" you read about in some magazine on your most recent flight to somewhere.
