    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The company has a good work life balance as there is rarely anyone working long hours to meet deadlines. The company is truly a global firm with international offices and opportunities in many days deferent countries.

    Cons

    No career development as hiring seems to always s come from outside. An elitist culture where pedigree and credentials seem to matter more than performance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, plenty of good people that don't come from McKinsey.

    Invesco is a company that truly cares about its employees' work-life balance. You can tell that management takes the time to listen to feedback and does their best to address concerns and problems.
