  1. "Very Frustrating"

    I have been working at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    The people in my group are great. I enjoy being around them.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They are completely out of touch with how things actually work and don't care how behind the software is. Process documentation is at an extreme level to the point where you have to document the process on how to document processes. There is lots of finger pointing and being rude.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how things actually operate and know how the job gets done

    Pros

    The people were nice.

    Cons

    Financial acumen of internal sales managers was slim to none. Most had just been at the company for a long time in ops and had no sales experience. They didn't seem to actively try and learn the products the desk was supposed to sell and more concerned about call metrics than productive sales calls.

    Advice to Management

    Make sales managers more accountable. They are doing enough to get by instead of trying to move the company/team forward.

    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.

    Pros

    Very professional nice work environment and great benefits.

    Cons

    No flexibility to take time off or schedule doctor's appointments in the afternoon due to nature of the work. Promotion is slow.

    Pros

    Great benefits including generous 401(k) supplemental, opportunities to explore within the company, great management team, great company culture and community partner.

    Cons

    You either love it or don't. Experiences seem to vary among employees. The majority love it. Personally, can not find anything really negative to point at. Like all companies, it is not perfect but it is relatively desirable.

    Pros

    Collegial environment overall, mostly good people overall. People work pretty well in an overall team environment.

    Cons

    Second generation management talks like first generation management but then doesn't really back up words with actions. They a a lot more focused on themselves and their advancement and compensation than the firm as a whole. Talk is cheap and actions speak volumes!

    Advice to Management

    Do what you say and say what you do instead of pretending.

    Pros

    Great culture, never get fired, good advancement opportunities, good/smart people, growing company.

    Cons

    There are very few cons. The only thing I would change is the compensation type. We get huge bonuses and smaller salaries. I would rather have a large salary with a smaller bonus.
