    Pros

    The firm seems to be well positioned for growth within industry and has been climbing rankings both in AUM and other measures.

    Cons

    The firm is going through growing pains as it continues to shift from the model of a group of boutiques to acting like a large global firm. Much of this transition is complete.

    Advice to Management

    Work to improve two way communication with employees on topics/initiatives that affect their functions, not just a rehash of the press releases or shareholder meetings.

    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

    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.

    I have been working at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    They make sure you're trained very well
    The people are great
    Benefits are pretty good

    Cons

    The job itself isn't good. You're on the phones all day and it's easy to begin to hate your job.
    It's sometimes hard to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Give the reps a chance to get off the phones from time to time. We get burned out. We're happy to work and learn, but talking to clients who aren't often happy is exhausting.
