    Pros

    Great benefits. Very stable company.

    Got laid off in 2008 with a great deal of others. The drop down only goes back to 2012. We were laid off due to market conditions. Great recession.

    Pros

    The people and the atmosphere at Invesco were great. I worked at the Dallas office, it is a great company to work for and as an intern I was able to learn a ton about the company as well as being thouroghly involved.

    Cons

    Although I was able to interact with several of the other groups inside the company there were server all others that I wish I could have had more of an interaction with.

    Advice to Management

    I really enjoyed the fact that the management reached out to the interns in an attempt to learn from them and hope they continue this.

    Pros

    Benefits are good but not great. Large company. Lots of room for growth. Great work/ life balance.

    Cons

    Can have a decent amount of turnover, but that creates opportunities for you. Pay is right at the average.

    Advice to Management

    There isn't much interaction with managers, you are expected to do your job so if you have a lot of interaction with managers, you are probably doing poorly.

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

    Pros

    Smaller atmosphere. Many tenured employees in higher positions. Starting pay is about average. The hours that they are open is great. Love the fact that when you call in, you speak directly with a person compared to going through a voice automated system.

    Cons

    Technology is very behind. Not user friendly for shareholders or employees. To many sub departments that could be condensed. Processes that are over complicated. Addressing and changing issues that have been lingering instead of penalizing employees.

    Advice to Management

    They need to decipher on what is more important when it comes to client facing. Taking ownership or allowing only first point of contact to handle on matters. If they are going to say they are efficient, there has to be a major change in the platform of technology that is offered.

    I learned so much working for Invesco. It was my longest running job and it has helped me grow into the financial reporting professional I am today.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful friendly place to work. I work with great consultants that are very talented, highly educated and have great communication skills. Great work life balance when not traveling.
    Very nice and large kitchen on main floor to store lunch/free coke products. Nice premier building in Atlanta.

    Cons

    Young inexperienced managers are not monitored closely for growth opportunities.
    "Pay for performance" does not work as they suggest.
    Atlanta traffic

    Advice to Management

    Look for trends in HR/payroll reporting for good/great performance ratings yet decrease in overall pay- year over year. Sends a contradictory message to employees.
