Take It From Them
At Calamos, I have been fortunate enough to experience both professional and personal
growth. Calamos recognizes and rewards those who are committed to the future of the
company, think like owners, and achieve results. Above all, my role has given me the ability
to work with clients in building their financial future; and to work with a team of self-starters
who are as dedicated as I am to the progress of this group and the greater organization.
Anita K., Wealth Management
I started my career in 2001 working as a Systems Support Specialist on the Desktop Support Team.
Through the guidance of my peers, the educational assistance program, and working with highly-motivated
Associates, I was able to advance my career to a management level. Working on the Systems
Support Team gives me the ability to work with a breadth of technologies that assist with
keeping our associates highly productive. I love working with my staff and understanding
why top-notch talent is so important to servicing the client.
Jim P., IT - Enterprise Services
I have worked at Calamos since 2005. Coming to Calamos from a large Internationally
based firm has been extremely rewarding. I went from feeling like an employee number
to feeling like a valued associate with the ability to add input to the direction of the
department I work in and the firm as a whole. Even though we are a public company the
firm retains its family feel. We focus on hiring the best talent and then growing that
talent in-house with an emphasis on education, training and development. As a manager my
best reward is to see associates move up within the organization and grow their careers
here at Calamos.
Brian W., Intermediary Sales
As a professional in the Learning and Performance Field it is exciting for me to work for a
company like Calamos Investments which is committed to being a learning organization. Calamos
promotes continuous learning and development in a variety of ways including supporting
associates who wish to achieve industry-related designations and the multitude of
learning resources available on the Calamos Academy Virtual Campus.
In addition to this focus on learning, I consider myself blessed to work with such
great colleagues. Each day I get the privilege of working with intelligent, hard-working
associates who are very supportive.
Tom K., Training & Human Resources
I've been impressed by the investment that Calamos has made in me. I particularly
value the mentorship I've received from individuals across the organization and the
opportunities I've had to learn from people in many departments. Since joining the firm
in 2006, I've participated in a wide range of projects, including editing, copywriting,
advertising and project management; this has allowed me to broaden my skill set and
learn about many areas of the financial services industry. I also appreciate the
firm's tangible commitment to supporting work/life balance and to providing
