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. 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.
