    Pros

    Company pick up n drop, good work life balance

    Cons

    Micro Management,Lot of resistance to new ideas/change esp.in the SOX team, Manager doesn't standby the work the team member does instead makes claims baselessly, small issues are given too much importance that the main purpose/essence of the work is not given focus, higher management doesn't support the employee when there is an issue but supports micro management and onshore team. Expectations are not communicated clearly though enquired. Totally unsatisfied with the experience and strongly don't recommend you to join the SOX team at Invesco. Growth is very slow. Not satisfied with the SOX Model.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanagement is the big concern,pay heed to it without supporting it silently.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits: Nice campus, Healthcare, Gym, GP, etc.

    Cons

    How you experience the company lies completely with the team you're working for. In the U.K., some are alright. Others are cliquey as hell. Some people are made to feel like crap every single day and nobody does anything about it. The U.S. office is more professional and less like a high school canteen.

    Some managers have ridiculous expectations they themselves could never meet. You do good work and it's quickly forgotten.

    There's a two tier society that was last seen during the Segregation Era: people on the investment floor have their own car park, lunch area, etc. that are out of bounds to the common people. This may lead to some people believing their own hype and being prone to temper tantrums not out of place in a 3-year-old child.

    HR representatives vary in quality. Some are great, others just mouthpieces of management. The company has all the politically correct clubs, but are surprisingly unaware of the issues faced by more junior employees.

    Advice to Management

    It could be a good place to work for – if it weren't for some people who really need to eat humble pie. No matter how senior a person may be, they would be nowhere without all the 'little people' doing all the work beneath them.

    Pros

    Very happy to work with you to balance personal and work life.

    Cons

    Low salary. You'll start at $30,000 while Toronto makes $40,000. Company claims to value feedback but constantly passed buck on compensation issues. They straight up tell you you're not worth as much as Toronto workers, insulting. As of Friday everyone who's been there for a year or more is actively looking for employment elsewhere. Management seems to have no idea.

    Advice to Management

    INVEST IN PEOPLE. We have bills to pay just like you do. PEI is an expensive place to live. Have a heart!

    Pros

    Good Company. Opportunities to move from one area to another. Supportive workplace and a friendly inclusive feel.

    Cons

    Unless moving from London, pay is not where it should be. The Henley location is a blessing and a curse; one is to some degree trapped, albeit in a rather pleasant trap.
