    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

    As an employee, effort put into your career at Argus will be repaid back with a significant multiple.
    Argus provides employees with the opportunity to work with worldwide clients across the finance and (recently) the retail sectors, and use modern analytical and modelling techniques and solutions to add value.
    Key pros:
    - salary and benefit package is competitive
    - opportunities for career/grade advancement are readily available, and are provided fairly. Again - the more you put in, then the more you get out of it
    - opportunities to work across worldwide sites - many people from the US and UK offices are currently working in Australia, New Zealand and other locations
    - work assignments tend to be of limited duration - so if you don't like the work task for that job, you're not doing it forever, and you quickly move onto a new role
    - you get exposure to best-in-class solutions at banks and retailers, and have a great opportunity to learn from this exposure
    - there is a good team culture and morale - which does come from the top down
    - good retention rate within the broad team demonstrates that something is right!
    - the company has a good balance between promoting from within, and also bringing in (limited) external talent, which helps refresh and deliver new perspectives

    Cons

    Hours can be long, but again as in any aspect of life, you will get more out, if you put the time and effort in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on providing the opportunities for individuals to grow within the company.
