I have been working at Janus Capital full-time

Pros

Great learning experience
Good pay and benefits
Denver is a great place to live
Work was challenging and intellectually stimulating

Cons

Politics were pervasive and toxic to the culture
Minimal constructive actionable feedback from managers
Not a genuine meritocracy
Too hierarchical

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break down the political ties and silos. They are the hurting culture, morale, and performance. Scale down the non-mission critical departments and focus on investing. Make the company more of a transparent meritocracy, it will benefit the company in the long-term.

    Current Employee - Licensed Investment Representative in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Janus Capital full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hiring manager was extremely thorough and made me feel very comfortable during a usually stressful process. Six full weeks of extensive training. Managers were very fair and very approachable when I needed more information. Many employee perks that were not job related; company picnic, Holiday party, company anniversary events, paid sick days and personal days.

    Cons

    The only con for this company was the commute, (40 miles each way.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change a thing!
