    Former Intern - Summer Intern in White Plains, NY
    Recommends

    I worked at Argus Information & Advisory Services for less than a year

    Pros

    I was given real work to do instead of mindless busywork. My team members were super welcoming and helpful when I had questions. I learned a lot about the credit card industry and what consulting is really like. The work environment is a good blend of fun and work.

    Cons

    The workload fluctuated. Sometimes I felt very busy and sometimes it didn't seem like there was much for me to do. The gender ratio is skewed male, especially at the lower levels. If you're looking for a job in New York City, this is definitely not it, but it's very easy to take Metro North to White Plains.

    I worked at Argus Information & Advisory Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I think you get to learn a lot about the credit card industry and the fast paced environment is definitely challenging. There is a lot of learn early on.

    Cons

    The biggest Concern in my view is the management. There are groups within the teams and divide is pretty evident. People support each other because they have been friends in college and talk about every other team member. Managers are untrained to handle pressure from bosses and they change managers without asking the employee. The expectations are not set. if you want to change your team they will hang you in the air saying I support you and in the hindsight tell bosses that this employee is not interested in doing work. The managers are waiting to behind the back of higher ups to do whatever they feel like doing and not tell anyone about it. Performance reviews are a joke and Bonuses they give are not upto the industry standards. The ugliest thing about this company is that if you do 1 small thing wrong and 100 things right they won't care how much you have done. It's that mistake they will remember and blame you.The culture of the company is very biased in that way.

    Pros

    Good exposure to credit card industry. Good Bonus. Too many projects are coming in, company is expanding but then there are negatives as well.

    Cons

    Company is very laid back. Attrition rate is so high and the management still doesn't care. Employees are paid less than the average market rate and are treated like slaves. Work! Work! Work! Long hours, no perks, no community activities, basically the company doesn't care about the employees. Whether they are satisfied with work or not. Very difficult to move across the teams. No diversity.
