    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

    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
