Pros: people are inexplicably impressed when they hear you work here
Cons: everything that janus stands for
Great place to work if you like mandatory 12 hour days 6 days a week being crammed into kennels in an open floor layout where you can hear conversations five rows away. Backstabbing, fear-driven colleagues embody the Janus corporate ethic. But hey the perks are great! -- Two Starbucks within walking distance and for a change of pace there's always Peet's.
Also, not a bad place to work if you don't mind having two bathrooms available per gender, per floor, (lacking any ventilation); given the number of people occupying each floor, the bathrooms get pretty ripe by about 10 am on Monday and grow ever nastier with the demon entrails of soul-possessed corporate drones as the week progresses. Sounds harsh I know, but management is aware of one's concerns and attempts to mitigate the stench of rotting humanity by piping in classical muzak for our listening pleasure!
Working here is to endure the lidless eye of a cold totalitarian state staring at you for 60+ hours a week while you give your life away year after year. And then there's the perks. Two weeks vacation per year -- don't even try to use it or the overtime you earned the other 50 weeks of the year. On the other hand ... holiday parties! Door prizes! Glitter!
For many, the hardships are worth it for the satisfaction of knowing that you are just one small cog in the great wheel of international finance; Janus's brand and your own personal brand merged into one. As Nordies puts it: "You have arrived." Indeed, and Janus, the 2-faced god of past and present will chew your soul up, process it and then spit it back out high above the Rocky Mountains and as you soar, you will wonder where the years and your family went and why did you give so much for so little? But hey it's only a short walk to Whole Foods. Lunch anybody?
