    I have been working at Argus full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some support by equal level employees

    Cons

    - Commute to downtown
    - VP level and up is totally dysfunctional. No one wants to be accountable for anything.
    - Communication to management is a one way street. You can not communicate with anyone above you, they always talk down to you.
    - No direction given on projects, and when not completed the way the manager wants you get scolded
    - Horrible training. Actually no existent for my position.
    - Mentality that if you are not working OT, you are not working hard enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't be so tight and unapproachable.
    - People make mistakes, including YOU, so don't harp on them.
    - Communicate with all employees and set reasonable expectations.
    - Don't come down from your throne only to discipline

    Current Employee - Senior Pharmacy Benefits Analyst in Kansas City, MO
    Current Employee - Senior Pharmacy Benefits Analyst in Kansas City, MO

    I have been working at Argus full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. Vacation is reasonable.

    Cons

    The pay is an absolute insult for the workload and stress that you're given. You will rarely (if ever) be recognized for hard work. Very limited opportunities for advancement. Your performance is measured yearly like any job, but management never communicates what they are measuring your performance on. In a nutshell, management is lacking any kind of management or communication skills as a whole.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key, and it's very clearly lacking. Engagement is going to be critical going forward, or you won't keep many employees. Bottom line is there are far too many overworked, underpaid employees.

    Pros

    You are able to work from home. You get three weeks of vacation starting your third year. Insurance is comparable.

    The employees need to be compensated for overtime
