Stay Away!

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Naperville, IL

I worked at Calamos Asset Management

ProsFlexibility with work/life balance. Free lunch each day. Covered parking. Good vacation policy and 401k match/profit sharing. Upscale work environment.

ConsVery political. Not everyone is treated fairly. Performance reviews are often very late, sometimes up to a year late. Senior management seems afraid of John Calamos. They are not empowered to make decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop micro managing your senior management. You pay them a lot of money. Let them do their jobs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
