“This place drains the life out of you!”

Trade Operations Representative (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Janus Capital full-time for more than 3 years

Pros*Exposure to the trading department of a mutual fund not in a major financial hub.
*Free lunch!
*Seeing the light of day during the winter and hitting the running trails early during summer.
*Gym in the building - although pretty small.
*Sweet benefits.

Cons*If you are slow to pick things up, you will be a target.
*If you have any sort of ambition, you will lose it.
*If you want managers who care about your success, you will be disappointed.
*If you think you will be respected here, you will not.
*If you aren't a yes man (or woman), you will struggle.
*If you want to express an opinion, you will quickly find it doesn't matter.
*If you show respect, you will not be shown it back.
*if you make a mistake, you will be told it doesn't affect your future - it does!
*if you want to transfer departments, you will again realize nobody respects you.
*If you give your two weeks, you will not see a quiet exit.

Advice to Senior ManagementPretend to care. Fight for your employees instead of telling them to roll with the punches of declining performance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great first job because you won't know any better.

Trade Operations Representative (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Janus Capital full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: - Nice location in Cherry Creek - The benefits are similar to but not better than other financial services companies in Denver. - If you like doing… Cons: - If you're not good at playing politics, this is not the department for you. - If you are a professional and know how… Advice to Senior Management: Management by fear and intimidation doesn't work. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
