    I have been working at Invesco full-time (More than 5 years)

    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a great culture at Invesco and a lot of support from the management team. This makes it easy to move up if you're hardworking and focused. There is a great work-life balance here so you're rarely taking anything home with you.

    Cons

    The Financial Services industry is heavily regulated so licensing is often required. The tests aren't difficult but studying is required to do well. I think pay is a bit below market but the benefits help make up for that.

    The shift is too late

    Pros

    Great people, and the work environment is great as well. A place that I would like to work for as long as possible

    Cons

    Definitely feels like corporate, and comes with all the political downsides of corporate life. Sometimes it feels like it is impossible to progress within the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, you are very supportive and helpful. However, I feel that you do not discipline poor performance like you should.

    They should allow more available positions to grow within.

    Great people, great benefits, manageable work/life balance. Broad product lineup with growing reputation of success. Resourceful portfolio managers that offer a high level of transparency and insight to their strategies when requested

    Cons

    Occasional unnecessary and unclear initiatives from upper management. Day to day performance metrics change often making it difficult to understand what exactly management wants the focus to be.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    Fairly Structured, hands on learning, develop skills in multiple areas, great stepping stone to another position, transferable skills.

    Cons

    Can be tedious or boring. Hitting the sales goal is of the upmost importance. Have to deal with annoying and rude brokers.

    Advice to Management

    All good internal sales consultants leave the company because there are so few career opportunities afterwards. If you want to retain talent, open positions.
