    Pros

    Flexible management believes in work-life balance. Rapid growth of company provides relatively frequent growth opportunities. Successful software company. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Fast pace of change can be overwhelming for some. Management struggling to keep product management empowered to fulfill their responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire more in product management to properly respond to the needs of our market. Right now we are too reactive to a few companies.

    Laid back dress code, low stress quite workplace

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Cons: if you are looking into real estate support analyst, training or consulting roles, just bear in mind, there is no one really to train you. The management knows just enough to sound knowledgeable at the interview, but when you dig deeper you are in for a surprise and a rough road ahead.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Company is relatively lean, people are great, salaries are competitive, good travel opportunities. I also enjoyed the work as it was challenging and gave me access to talk with others in the industry. A lot of good people in senior management.

    Cons

    Like any company, some level of bureaucracy. Also there was a bit of a disconnect not being located in the corporate office.

    Pros

    Strong product with good market position and reputation

    Cons

    Small company mentality. Upper management very cliquish, has it's favorites and a somewhat anyone can do this job mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the talent you have because they are the reason for the success.

    Pros

    The amount of industry knowledge you can gain is tremendous. I have been able to meet with many high-level people through this position which is great. Argus is also the industry leader in the space, so there is a fair amount of innovation going on. The people are a pretty tight knit group and the composition is diverse.

    Cons

    The senior management's vision is the right approach but the vision does not get carried down to the employees. There is not proper and effective communication to enable the vision to be executed. There is also a breakdown in communications between different entities within the organization. Currently, the company is suffering from the downturn in credit markets, so there are layoffs going on.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little bit more transparent and spend a bit more time in delivering the vision throughout the organization.

    Pros

    Argus has a start-up mentality with a listed company's financial resources which makes for a great mix. The management team is continually being strengthened and there are now some seasoned pro's in leadership roles, particularly in sales. The market is buoyant, the product is a "need to have" for the customer and everything is aligned for a positive future

    Cons

    A little too collegiate in the decision making processes and therefore sometimes slow in making the right decision

    Advice to Management

    Act fast! This is a window of opportunity that Argus need to exploit no and not delay decisions that will allow for this
