    I have been working at Argus Research Company full-time

    Pros

    Independence of analysts, nice group of people

    Cons

    Management is lacking skill set to manage, low salary, office conditions are like a sweatshop, burdensome workload, half the company works from home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what you want to be and pursue a long-term strategy. Stop chasing every revenue opportunity in the market. The company does not have the resources to do pursue every dime in the equity research business.

    Completely disorganized small family run business. No room for advancement unless you are related or marry in.

    Former Employee - Vice President of Sales in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Vice President of Sales in New York, NY

    I worked at Argus Research Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Predictable but backward looking 'safe' product. Good for trust departments to paper their decisions. Little risk. Good place to start your career but don't get stuck there.

    Cons

    No sales support. No access to senior management. No infrastructure. No advancement. Low pay. Shrinking client base. Stay away unless you are desperate or need a starter job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide upon the long term goals of the company. Get that new website. Hire a competent sales professional. Put more process in place that links the product to the sales team.

    Pros

    Low stress, academic environment. Quality work by analysts. A pleasant group of people.

    Cons

    No long term cohesive business plan. No short term cohesive business plan. No support by management, operations, or IT. Reactive as opposed to proactive. Always 'putting out fires'. Lack of active management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Argus Research Company

    Pros

    Work/ Life balance, flexibility of schedule and location. Company is very opne to finding creative working solutions to meet the needs of the employee.

    Cons

    Industry uncertainty. Company tranisitioning and so a defined long term strategy appears to be lacking. Definitely a work in progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose something to be and set long term goals to achieve that strategy. Don't try to be something you are not.
