    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!

    I have been working at Janus Capital

    Pros

    - benefits package is outstanding. the best I have seen out of dozens of companies I consulted in the past
    - people are fabulous in this company. energetic, helpful, play team. At least that's how I feel at IT and the business units I support. I think that covers a fair wide range of the company
    - pay at IT is pretty good

    Cons

    - you don't really have a whole lot of chances to move around in the company. they will rather hire from outside than transitioning an employee from one role to another with some training. These employees ended up getting let go or they will just quit eventually once they find their jobs are dead ends.

    I have been working at Janus Capital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very smart people who work hard and play hard. The company is very client focused and compliance oriented. Strong ethical standards in the investment department and in the rank and file. If you do not find change stimulating, this isn't your best place to work

    Cons

    If you are not in the investment department, salaries are no longer competitive even within the Denver metro area. Great training ground but constantly losing top performers to competitors. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salary adjustments to line functions so that when an opportunity arises for existing employees, the compensation angle is eliminated.
