Pros

From my personal experience ARGO is an awesome company to work for. I had something horrible happened in my life and they helped in everything they could and did it from the heart. Also they allow you to do your job and do not pressure you at all, as long as you do you job and meet the deadlines. Opportunity for rapid promotion. Great management.

Cons

Data sharing and resources for gathering information are very limited, many of the management has been there as long as the newest team members and there is not a lot of people that you can go for help in certain areas of the company since the code is very ARGO specific.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some managers are understanding on time off
    Nice building with onsite gym facilities as well as a cafe
    Management is starting to become more "modern", allowing for casual fridays, flexible schedules, sponsering team sports

    Cons

    Middle Management is the biggest problem! Managers do not treat all employees equally
    Raises are difficult to come by and usually do not add up to much - the general idea is that you do not deserve a "cost of living" increase, you must go above and beyond to get a raise.
    The turnover rate is extremely high

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to pay more attention to middle management (they are making a lot of mistakes that no one seems to notice). Also, the hiring process needs to be better. Seems as they are not really paying attention to the employees they are hiring; they should be more selective.
    They should fire the slackers - there are a lot of them (middle management are allowing them to get away with doing nothing while overloading the "good" employees), they are bringing overall morale down. In order to help with retention, overall salaries should be increased, also each group should have a chance at getting raises (not just managers or programmers).
