    I worked at Calamos Asset Management full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay when I was there between 2004-2009. Nice facilities, Free Lunch. Its a good story to tell if you sell the funds. Convertible Bonds expertise is very well known.

    Cons

    John Calamos Sr has no vision for Calamos Investments looking out 10 to 20 years. No appreciation for Sales Department- John Calamos always considered the sales department a necessary evil and really lets you feel it. A lot of existing and tenured employees who are earning a lot of money but add minimal value exist over there. Sr. hires a lot of Managers than fires them after giving them little or no latitude. Executive Leaders can't handle the micro management and abuse from the boss. It's always been a revolving door of Senior Leaders on 2020 Calamos Court. I've heard on many occasions that he can manage money but can't manage people. Recruiter once told me "Congrats on leaving the John and Nick show". Nick is gone now who was the brains of the organization. They seem to be stuck at the same asset level for the last 8 years simply because investment performance has been mediocre. Brokers who sell the funds don't have the same respect that was there 10 years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some latitude to Senior Managers. Give your sales folks another market update and outlook to share. They've been singing the same song since 2004.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
