Хочете потратить свое время на эту шаражку кончелыжную? Дерзайте, вечное давление от руководства и вечная занятость нет свободной минуты дома. Зарплаты минимальные за такую работу. Должен впаривать никому ненужные типо акции без рисков, это не кампания, а идиотский культ наебаловп
You start the day looking at newspapers to find latest developments in energy and call your contacts to find more. You are out for the next big story in energy. You learn a lot about energy and energy pricing on the job. You learn a lot about how your company makes its money and thus try and working in that knowledge to business development. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to people and networking, while the hardest part is perhaps the writing itself.
Argus is a good place when you just start your career, but once you build up your experience, you feel like the company does not appreciate your work and management only cares about their job. They don't appreciate or compensate you. Also, they don't have any benefit at all besides very basic healthcare. Turn over is very high, so you see people leaving and new hires every week.
I am Sales and marketing professional with 13-years cross-culture experience in B2B sector: building commercial and marketing strategies, leading high-caliber sales projects and working with C-level executive and government structures. As a VP I am responsible for growing strong relationships across the globe to achieve account growth and positive client experiences while capitalizing on market movements and new opportunities. My role is to manage strategic accounts and represent the entire range of Argus products and services. I am serving for the company as the personal contributor with the strategic vision behind a global pursuit team, and as a team leader who works closely with client engagement, marketing and business development to achieve financial goals and continue a strong collaborative growth trajectory.
changing business enviroment
A staff of about 250-300 in the americas, building location is excellent and the work areas are pleasant. You are surrounded by intellectuals, extremely bright individuals, diverse culture and plenty of fruit and coffee available (provided by company). Attire is business casual, we occupy 2 floors in the building and a good mix of personalities. Lots of employee engagement and wellness initiatives. Downsides to some roles: limited career paths, they are not open to flex hours, currently experiencing some severe growing pains, getting some things right, not everything - the lack of timely communication is what hurts the most.
Great Health Benefits & 401k match! beautiful office space, endless fruit and coffee, MOSTLY friendly staff, intellectual and diverse environement
limited career paths, not open to flex hours, lack on timely communication
It was fun to work for at first and got me a reason to get out of bed early but it was poorly managed and was sometimes demotivating. The people were regularly not very nice towards you.
Free convectionary items sometimes
Long hours for not much money
Typical Day -- tons of productive activity. There isn't a lot of wasted activities or work. Management is growing. Trying to keep up with the growth of the business. Very smart people. The best part of my job is the people. Passionate about the customer and the product, understanding that we are critical at the center of commerce in the world.
401K, gym membership, training.
Becoming political, challenges working with home office.
Job can get mundane after a year or so. Management does little to groom and train staff, and does not take year-end appraisals seriously. Majority will find their pay rising at a snail’s pace no matter the achievements, hardwork and dedication given to the job. This leaves staff morale depressingly low. The management tacitly encourages employees to find job opportunities outside and use such job offers as leverage to get finally get a promotion in title and/or pay. Such strategy is so prevalent that rival firms have in the past imposed a hiring freeze on Argus employees, knowing that their interest in the job is superficial. Aside from basic health insurance solely for the employee, there is no interest in staff welfare, most evident in a lack of a human resources department across all global offices.
Good work-life balance
Fails to compensate staff in a fair and transparent manner
It was a reasonably easy going job, not much time was required. Papers would be delivered on Thursdays and would have to be delivered by Friday. I had to do about 150 papers which wasn't to bad as i was given a bag to deliver them.
Trabajo como corresponsal. Redacto en las mañanas los reportes diarios y en las tardes me dedico a investigar el tema del día siguiente. El trabajo me permite tener tiempo para mi hija
