    I have been working at Calamos Investments full-time

    Pros

    There are some I am sure but none worth enduring the stuff that goes on within this firm.

    Cons

    Bad people fester and thrive while good people that care and work hard are chewed up and spit out. There is not one good person here that isn't looking to get out. The rest understand that they can't go anywhere else and this is as good as it gets for them. Calamos is a career killer for anyone in the industry. You will never be taken serious in your role after a stint here.

    Advice to Management

    There isn't management. There is one person that runs everything and his minions that run around enforcing his rules.
