    Pros

    The firm seems to be well positioned for growth within industry and has been climbing rankings both in AUM and other measures.

    Cons

    The firm is going through growing pains as it continues to shift from the model of a group of boutiques to acting like a large global firm. Much of this transition is complete.

    Advice to Management

    Work to improve two way communication with employees on topics/initiatives that affect their functions, not just a rehash of the press releases or shareholder meetings.

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

    Pros

    Collegial environment overall, mostly good people overall. People work pretty well in an overall team environment.

    Cons

    Second generation management talks like first generation management but then doesn't really back up words with actions. They a a lot more focused on themselves and their advancement and compensation than the firm as a whole. Talk is cheap and actions speak volumes!

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say and say what you do instead of pretending.
