I worked at Argus Information & Advisory Services

Pros

There was a great atmosphere amongst the workers. The employees were very friendly and approachable.

Cons

The work days tended to stretch into around 10-12 hours. A little more interaction during the day would be better.

    I have been working at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time (more than an 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.

    Cons

    They work you very hard (12 hour + days)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The benefits will leave employees satisfied after working long days, so keep doing what you're doing.
