    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.
