    I have been working at Argus full-time (less than an 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

    Pros

    Good people trying to do a good job, decent benefits, flexible work situation depending on your manager.

    Most senior and middle management aren't respected by the associates, but then they return the favor.

    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.

    Cons

    Excessive Overtime year round. Management needs to work on communicating with there teams. Need to hire more people. They need to pay there employees more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employees need to be compensated for overtime

    This company was good and fun when I started 6 years ago. Then, management changed and it's been awful ever since.

    Pros

    Even though people are quitting all the time to get out, there are some good people there. Unfortunately, very few of them are in management.

    Cons

    1. Projects are handed to PM's with a deadline already attached to them before scope is even finalized. Those deadlines are usually expected to be met at any cost. This is a real sweat shop. Avoid at all costs.
    2. Management cares nothing about you or your personal life. They only care about themselves and their bonuses.
    3. Most employees literally joke every day about what an awful place Argus is to work and most associates are either aggressively or somewhat actively looking for a new job.
    4. When an associate quits, they are rarely replaced and when they are, the new person often leaves within 6 months or less after they realize how bad the culture is if they're marketable enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, they need to clean house in management instead of the employee base. The management team is distrusted and in a recent company survey, the lowest score was for a question about whether employees trusted the company executives. They then had an all employee meeting to discuss their plans to make work better but they had no plans that included executives changing anything about what they do. It is a truly a good ol' boy management team from the IT side where nearly every member of management was from a former DST company called Fairway that went belly up. If you didn't formerly work at Fairway, you are very much in the minority of being a part of the management team at Argus. I'm saying this in this section because I believe it's unjustified and unfair and that the entire company needs to take a second look at why this happened the way it did.
