    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Argo Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Professional. contemporary office environments; business casual atmosphere; available managers; good quality, friendly employees; team environment.

    Cons

    Prior company mergers, acquisitions, consolidations, evolutions, etc. make the organizational history and structure difficult to follow. It takes time to learn how your division, department, team came to be and how it fits into the overall organization.

    Advice to Management

    More cross - functional training and other department product knowledge to allow each employee to be a better spokesperson for the entire organization.
