    I have been working at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time

    Pros

    You have the chance to learn a lot about the banking industry (if that is your aim you can do it here). If you start as an analyst (out of college for example), you have the chance to build good work ethic, which will help further your career. If you work at Argus at a higher level (i.e. Manager and higher), you have the chance to help in the advancement of other's who report to you as well as continue to build your skills. Since Argus is not a large company, you have more ability to make an impact than you might at some larger companies.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work but that is the same with any growing company.

    I have been working at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on the most relevant issues facing the banking industry. Argus does care about retaining top talent - and is doing everything they can to make the job sustainable while continuing to deliver the highest quality for its clients. Personal development opportunities are big, but only for the better performers.

    Cons

    Travel can become the norm. First few years are tough as one needs to prove themselves. No easy passage based on reputation. Experience can vary significantly across teams and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Training, perks and work-life balance.

    I worked at Argus Information & Advisory Services as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The teams are small at Argus. Most people are your team are usually available to talk or to walk you through something. This is most valuable when tackling a problem when someone on your team might have more experience with.

    Cons

    As an intern, wish there was more of a concrete program for interns. It sometimes seemed like the interns were thrown into the wild to fend for themselves their first week. Also, some interns received more formal training than others depending on what team that had been placed on.

    Advice to Management

    A well structured intern injection program that guarantees that interns are all on the same level no matter what team or company project they are on. A streamlined process and orientation would not hurt.

    Pros

    As a intern, you will obtain great work experience that will jump start your career. Many interns are hired on as full time employees.

    Cons

    Young professional environment with many recent graduates. Fast paced and not for the faint of heart. Not a place where you can push paper and still get by.
