    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.

    Invesco should subcontract out most of its back office operations because they won't be about to cut fees without that

    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    Great group of people. Good benefits and work/home balance. I really enjoyed working there because the people made it fun to come into work. But, after a couple of years with no growth prospect I came to realize that it was a job and not a career.

    Cons

    Career development is pretty much non existent. Everyone tends to stay in their current role so movement is nonexistent and when there is a role opening they do not tend to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Provide opportunities to those that have been at the company and put in years of service to have the option to work elsewhere.

    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

    Pros

    Great pay. Good development of sales staff depending on who your manager or external partner is.

    Cons

    Very numbers driven, they care more about how many calls you make more than how many actual sales you make. People get ahead by being "yes" men. Some sales managers has never had any sales experience so after your first phone call, you will have more experience than your manager.

    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    401k contribution match is really good

    Cons

    people have a bad habit calling out when short staffed, AM's come in late setting the example for the staff to do the same, makes it hard to be productive before lunch

    Advice to Management

    hold people accountable on when they are supposed to come into work, cut down on these month long vacation approvals that don't allow other people off, or jam up our reporting cycles because we are understaffed and people start calling out sick because they get burnt out. makes the situation worse
