No opinion of CEO

I worked at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You get to say you work as a consultant (although its somewhat misleading). There is room for rapid advancement and the ability to take on responsibility of managing a team a little bit more quickly than at other places.

Cons

Argus has a work culture that is very unkind to its employees. They treat new analysts without respect and do not 'trust' them with internet access until you become a manager which is 2-3 years out. As others have mentioned, employees are treated like replaceable factory line workers and doesn't really show any appreciation for their hard work.

Advice to Management

Start respecting your employees and care about their professional growth. After about 6 months, the learning curve falls off and analysts do not continue to develop useful skills. At this point employees are seen as commodities. It is very unfortunate that analysts (and senior analysts) are not allowed internet access in order to squeeze every ounce of productivity out of them.
