    I worked at Argopoint as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    One on one time with senior management!

    Cons

    It's a small company, there is little room for error. It's an incredible place to learn, but the learning curve is steep.

    I worked at Argopoint

    Pros

    Aren't restricted to one roll. Have the ability to jump around, and gain a lot of experience from some really smart people.

    Upper management not always the most approachable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't play favorites with the interns.

    Pros

    No shortage of hands on experience.

    I worked at Argopoint

    Pros

    When put on a project, you will get a lot of hands on first-hand partner level experience. With the right group of people, you'll have a great time

    Cons

    No guarantee you will be put on a project right away.
    There is an expectation that work always comes first before anything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more upfront about the stringent requirements for the employees. Do not think less of employees for having other commitments or for having other priorities.

  8. Outstanding Experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Argopoint

    Pros

    The office culture is extremely development-focused, with personal development and professional growth as a key goal for all employees. There are substantial opportunities for direct experience and exposure to all aspects of the consulting firm, ranging from marketing exposure to the most important client projects.

    Cons

    Because of the nature of the firm, there can often be a very disparate set of responsibilities employees take on. Maintaining the correct balance among these responsibilities can prove challenging.

  9. Great opportunity to learn and grow with amazing exposure.

    I have been working at Argopoint part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Work with great people.
    - Opportunity to work closely with projects and play an integral role in execution.
    - Quality of work delivered results in overwhelming feedback from clients. Very rewarding.
    - Challenging introduction, but develops key skills

    Cons

    - Not the easiest start. A lot of marketing work, but do it well and take initiative and you will find yourself being assigned to more exciting projects in no time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Undoubtedly works the hardest. Can be demanding and keep us on ours toes but it seems to produce great results! Keep it up, would really love to see the business grow.

  10. I worked at Argopoint as an intern

    Pros

    Get to do real business work, not just buy coffee, clean office or answer the phones.

    Cons

    Interns can get very busy. They usually work lots of extra hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should be more organized with intern schedule.

    I have been working at Argopoint as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with, a huge introduction and exposure to the world of management consulting, if you nail the small stuff you have a chance to contribute to C-level presentations and projects/case studies, a sense of ownership, lots of transparency, cool location to work in

    Cons

    Turnover is high as Argopoint does serve as an incubator of sorts, work flow is based on projects and as such activity depends on the stage a project is in, work can be tedious at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and grow the business a bit more
