    I have been working at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent environment to learn from industry experts, and play a visible role in the organization. Strong culture of developing internal talent, and positioning employees to take on broader roles.

    Cons

    Could benefit from additional formal training opportunities, however, Argus has been working very closely with Verisk's L&D team to close that gap.

    Advice to Management

    In the last few years, the leadership team has actively maintained a pulse on employee morale, and introduced several exciting initiatives to combat pain points. Keep this up!

    I have been working at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time

    Pros

    The environment is similar to a small business, meaning that ingenuity is appreciated and employees in the same role can have very different projects & experiences. It is not uncommon for someone with 2-4 years of experience to lead a team, present to executives, and have developed a broader understanding of the payments industry. Projects can span a wide variety of areas, including financial services, retail, advertising etc.

    Also new hires tend to be in a similar peer groups and become great coworkers/friends as a result. The annual soccer tournament and Friday train back into the city are extremely fun social events.

    Cons

    It can be challenging to balance work-life during the week as the hours are often long (45-60) and the commute into NYC is about an hour. A few managers are not as invested in employee development as others (you can switch teams if requested though).
