    I have been working at Invesco as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of free time. Pay is average. Perks = non existent except for the occasional free fruit.

    Cons

    Absolutely mundane work. Great people though. Can easily bond. Next to real estate group, i.e. your typical stuck up, posh crowd. Not one hello, ever.

    Advice to Management

    Acquisition strategy softens the work moral and sense of leadership. Be ready for critical mass soon if you continue.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Invesco is a solid company who embodies the work life balance concept. Compensation is at market or above market in some areas.
    The leaders of the company give constant updates of their purpose and direction.

    Cons

    Cons are subjective to the department and manager.
    Company wide, the lack of investment in their existing employees is a problem.
    If your existing talent does not have the skill to take on a higher position why have they not been developed to take it on?
    Where you are in your career is where you will stay at invesco in the next 5 to 10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to future employees:
    If you just want the work life balance this is your place. If you are ready to coast and retire. This is the place for you.

    If you want to learn and grow as a professional this not the place for you. Invesco is very government/military like.

    Advice to the HR personnel you may read this:
    Experienced management with 20+ years need to train the younger managers on how to be real managers of people who know how to develop, delegate, and motivate employees.
    Canned online management courses does not work. It makes the managers sound silly, robotic, not genuine, and offensive in some cases.
    Constant hiring of external employees and not properly training and developing existing employees brings down the moral.

    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.
