    Pros

    Great company to work for, with solid stable business, work/life balance and stability are high priorities for Sr. Management. Long average employee tenure speaks to these advantages.

    Cons

    Slow professional growth, not many opportunities for training (at the moment, even though this is temporary).

    Pros

    Opportunity - lots of promoting from within for those who are passionate about what they do and strive to be the best

    Cons

    Pay doesn't tend to be the highest. They are competitive, and when you factor in benefits, work life balance, etc, the pay is very good. However, if money is your main priority, you may be able to find places that will pay you more for the same job

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    "Invesco Real Estate"

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Invesco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rank & file employees are for the most part are sincere, good, hard-working folks.

    Cons

    Senior management only focused on selves, controlling costs and reducing expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell us that our people are our most important resource and then not be competitive with regards to compensation, benefits, training, or career advancement. Laying off senior employees and replacing them with junior employees might help reduce expenses but actually hurts overall productivity.
