    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.

    Pros

    Worked in client facing side. Given a lot of responsibility right away. Good blend of technical & business skills needed.

    Most young people wish it was in NYC instead of White Plains. The commute by train isn't bad but its not as exciting as NYC.
