Work was enjoyable and the people working there are very friendly and willing to help. It is a professional work environment but also can be laid back at times.

Low pay and bad management
Sr. Investment Specialist (Former Employee) –  Denver, CONovember 27, 2017
The company does not pay well and the management I worked for was very incompetent and did not care too much for the people that worked below them. If you are not part of the cool kids crowd, you may not get a chance for promotion.

It was ok
Print/Web Specialist (Former Employee) –  Denver, COAugust 8, 2017
Working at Janus Henderson was o.k. Lots of office politics between managers with no clear direction. Nice ideas and concepts with little follow through. Their project management system was dated and cumbersome. No print procedures, multiple issues with brand consistency and version control.
Pros
Janus Henderson offers lots office perks.
Cons
Hires only contractors.

Painful position unless adept at customer service, opportunity to move to other departments essentially luck.
Non-licensed Agent II (Temporary Contract) (Former Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 12, 2017
Spend the day answering client calls regarding trading, products, and retirement.

Managment team is nice and supportive will attempt to do their best to help you move to where you'd like.

Somewhat laid back culture although call grading can be rigorous.

The hardest part is the consistent attention to detail and dealing with difficult clients. Plus you are not able to give any kind of advice which can be challenging during tax season.
Pros
Free soda machine, job shadows, internship opportunities (if you go full time)
Cons
Short breaks, scheduling time off can be challenging, and the pay is low even at the full time level.

It was a good work environment
Financial Reporting intern (Former Employee) –  Denver, COFebruary 11, 2017
The hours were fairly long, which I have no issue with. I really enjoyed the people that I worked around. The work itself of financial reporting was fairly mundane but that was the fault of the nature of the work, not the company. The corporate culture is tremendous. The CEO uses his own money to have food trucks come supply free lunch outside the offices about once a month and they do many other things like that to keep morale high.

Good company if your on the investments side
Fund Accountant (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 31, 2017
But if you work in back office or in operations they do not treat you as well as the rest of the company. Took the job to move over to an analyst at some point, but it is tough to transition.
