    Pros

    Location, everyone knows each other - small company, somewhat family oriented, new product generated opportunities, if you do as told can go far.

    Cons

    Low employee recognition (employee of the quarter award is a joke), you are expected to work even during your vacation, upper management decisions directly affecting your day-to-day work are made without employee feedback.

    Advice to Management

    The bottom line of the business being profitable is important, but do not ignore the fact that without employees, there is no company.

    I worked at ARGI full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    some of the staff with the exception of leadership. So glad this company are out of business.

    Cons

    1) No Annual Salary Increase which is why they don't do annual reviews --- Always ask a potential employer if they execute annual reviews because that will let you know whether they conduct annual increases.

    2) No promotion within...You may be the brightest and they will overlook you over their favorite people who just happen to be totally unqualified for their current roles or managerial roles

    3) Towards the end employees salaries (those who remained working for this unscrupulous company) ended up getting salary decreases.

    4) Employee moral was all over the place. Managers bad mouthed the staff members who did not kiss up to them and when approached they would totally negate it.

    Advice to Management

    Thank God you closed your doors although now you're running your company under the name Pacesetters...I'm sure you're still pulling the same foolish games.

    Pros

    The location of the office was nice.
    There were good places to eat nearby.
    Some of the employees were intelligent and hard working.

    Cons

    Egotistical management with no business sense.
    Ridiculous deadlines.
    No vision or planning.
    Managers out to serve themselves on the backs of their staff.
    Backstabbing at the highest levels.
    So much time wasted on mind games instead of producing a quality product.
    A complete lack of business sense from the leadership

    Advice to Management

    Pick up some current business management literature and understand how modern corporations are run.
    Try to develop loyalty to your employees, who will then exhibit loyalty to the organization.
    Get rid of deadwood immediately especially when clients complain about it and start to quit.
    Don't bury your head in the sand and think that customers will ignore the fact that you can't deliver anything on time.
