Pros

Decent benefits.
Pay is industry standard.
Good place to work if you need an quick job between looking for something better.

Cons

Management is clueless
No incentive to improve
Environment and Culture is very negative
People are not valued. Only focus is on ROI and cutting expenses
IT is a waste of space. Only interested in outsourcing jobs to other countries. All the real talent has left the building.

Advice to Management

Trim the fat at the top. Your employees are not happy even if they smile and agree so maybe you should start listening to them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, pretty nice facilities.

    Cons

    Argo is nothing more than a financial playground for the Executives. The company cannot afford bonuses or cost of living increases for the employees, but they can afford a private jet? With only a few exceptions, the Executives at Argo treat the employees like lesser human beings. It's also worth mentioning that that same Executive team is primarily made up of a bunch of old buddies, college frat brothers, and prep school pals. I was in Management at Argo, so I got to see the dark side of the organization first hand.

    Advice to Management

    The Board of Directors and shareholders should really take a serious look at how their money is being used.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    A pretty stable place to work. Nice people. Easy to talk to and generally are willing to help you. Good 401k matching.

    Cons

    No direction for the future. Too much red tape and "culture" is pretty much non-existent. There are no incentives to do better. People just show up everyday and go through the motions.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the stale managers and learn to have fun. Get some new people in the door with fresh ideas and learn to be innovative. People spend too much of their lives at work to not enjoy it.
