I have been working at Janus Capital full-time

Pros

- health insurance is decent but the out of pocket rx drug deductible is higher than other insurance plans

Cons

- lots of overtime
- high turn over rate
- overpaid middle managers and directors who do nothing
- useless hr department
- sick days are taken out of of your PTO
- most of the good people leave

Advice to ManagementAdvice

middle managers and directors should be evaluated more closely

    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 ManagementAdvice

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