    I have been working at Invesco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and 'Total Compensation Package' are great. Most of the employees are fun and philanthropic.

    Cons

    Benefits are good enough to keep many people around longer than their desire to be there. Your growth potential really depends on your department/role. My current department has little to no growth. Management roles usually filled externally.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.

    Pros

    Real Estate is a strong performing segment of the company, and the industry is very dynamic with a wide variety of roles. There is opportunity for advancement, although it is limited to real estate only as the Invesco HQ (and thus the majority of jobs) is located in Atlanta. Despite the culture cons listed below, turnover is low. Work/life balance is reasonable for middle and back office roles. Customer-facing, transaction, and portfolio management roles involve heavy travel and frequent meetings.

    Cons

    Office culture is polite, but not particularly open or friendly. A bit bland - not bad, not great either. Teams are silo'd and do not interact much despite the open office plan. Corporate roles staffed in the Dallas office are managed by Atlanta-based managers, but also receive significant input from Dallas-based stakeholders, which creates some Office Space multiple manager issues .

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a workplace that is more engaging and exciting for your employees. Provide more opportunities for socializing / team-building and hire managers that value personal development over technical expertise.
