Current Employee - Senior Analyst in White Plains, NY
Current Employee - Senior Analyst in White Plains, NY

I have been working at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time (more than a year)

Pros

1) work life balance is tough but management will accomadate time for your needs (broken car, waiting for the cable guy, etc...)
2) Telecommuting is occasionally permitted.
3) Best data company in the world

Cons

1) infighting between the two major company divisions-- lack of communication between the two
2) Salary is adequate, but they make you wait until March for the bonus. People quit just before receiving their bonuses, which leads me to my next point.
3) NYC companies are out pacing argus in both base pay and bonuses, anecdotal evidence would support this.
4) On average 1-2 people quit per week for a better option.
5) Company only matches a better option rather than going over the top to retain talent.
6) Major brain drain going on here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have to spend it to make it. Start giving meaningful raises to employees. More people are on the way out, you just have to listen around the watercooler carefully enough.

Stop hiring from outside to fill manager vacancies. You have talented Senior Analysts that can do the job. Promote from within.
