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

    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.

    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.
