    I worked at Janus Capital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some of the smartest people in the industry. Learned a lot. Gold star benefits. Nice perks, awesome coworkers.

    Cons

    Opportunity to grow and learn was limited by the team and personalities you are assigned and their willingness to mentor.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pigeon-hole people; you've let some really great people go which changed a lot of the culture.

    Pros

    Great culture, lots of fun events thrown for employees, amazing holiday party, and great benefits. Most people are great to work with (depending on the department).

    Cons

    Very political atmosphere, and it's very hard to get promoted. I've seen people who have been in their roles for 10 years before getting promoted. It's very dependent on whether you have a supportive boss who will develop you to progress in your career.

    vacation time a plus, allowed to take long lunches. Given a staff that does all the work

    Too many high level opinions on how to run a company. Will not take advice from leaders like me.

    Stop spending money on high level bonuses.

    I worked at Janus Capital full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great location in Cherry Creek, and an amazing and interesting history.

    Cons

    Janus used to be a very unique and special place, due in large part to the values and culture directly brought into being by its original founder. The company used to be, proudly, Colorado culture and quite specifically not a typical Wall Street company.
     Eventually, after Tom Bailey's retirement, the executive leadership became more and more East Coast financial slickers, which over time undermined the 4-decade long unique culture that was.

    Advice to Management

    Now, after the acquisition/merger, hard to say how it could ever be possible to get back you your roots, but finding something special and differentiating would help. There are still a lot of very talented, dedicated, and long-tenured employees there, and they are growing weary.
