    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 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 Management

    Don't change a thing!

    Pros

    Janus was a wonderful place to work. For me, it was a wonderful work life balance and I enjoyed going to work because of the people I was surrounded by.

    Cons

    I can't think of many cons. For the most part I enjoyed it and would be happy to work there again.
