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

    Pros

    Argus checks all the boxes from a benefits and compensation perspective: good healthcare, generous paid time off, family leave policies, etc. The company is doing very well financially with expansion of its businesses and workforce globally. Opportunities for advancement abound for worthy employees.

    On the intangible side of the equation, Argus is the rare employer that promotes a strong work ethic, a culture of mutual respect, and a non-hyper-competitive atmosphere. Argus does not suffer from the same pervasive ego problems that befall many consulting, technology, and financial services companies.

    Hiring smart people does not always coincide with hiring thoughtful people. Fortunately, Argus combines the two.

    Cons

    Argus' data ecosystem can be unwieldy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to see innovations through and work with employees on both professional and personal growth.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Argus Information & Advisory Services (White Plains, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online through my college career portal. The company emailed me the same week to set up an initial phone screen. The phone screen was basic stuff just about availability and school. They called me back later the same day to invite me in next week.

    At the office I interviewed 1:1 with three different hiring managers from three different teams. Basic SQL questions you can find by googling SQL interview questions, basic riddles, minor behavior questions. Overall was an easy and smooth interview process.
