I worked at Calamos Asset Management

Pros

not a lot pressure to get work done, good work and life balance, good benefits, free lunches, if you aren't an agressive employee its a good place for you

Cons

sr. management doesn't pay much attention to employees, think they are a technology firm when they have 1980's technology, Who the heck uses Foxpro anymore? lots of dinosaurs roaming the aisles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

trust your employess, they know more than you think, you grew too fast, and don't get into business your don't know about, i.e. real estate and restaurants

    I worked at Calamos Asset Management

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Very 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing your senior management. You pay them a lot of money. Let them do their jobs.
