    I worked at Cartus as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My manager acted like a mentor to me and was always available. This was hit or miss for the managers- other interns had extremely different experiences. The HR manager in charge of the intern program was very charismatic. Senior management was welcoming and inviting. There is a very loose hierarchical structure at the company. Various managers would stop by my cubicle to check in with me regarding work and life in general.

    Cons

    Movement of co-workers from one client team to the next occurs so frequently that it is hard to establish a good flow within a consultant team. There isn't much connectivity within a consultant team as far as work methodology. Everyone is very social, but chatting on the floor is so frequent that it becomes distracting. Beware of the food on the office floor- co-workers bring in junk food for every possible occasion. It is not a conducive environment for people trying to stay healthy.

    Pros

    Atmosphere, benefits, ethics, training overall it's just an amazing company to work for, I was a very happy employee.

    There weren't too many cons, management in other areas weren't always professional on how they dealt with issues, thankfully I didn't have that experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing much to mention, my manager was awesome, loved by all and well respected, as with other managers in my department.

    Pros

    The company values work-life balance and provides multiple, creative ways to engage employees in activities to further personal and professional interests. Benefits are good as well, with a variety of options to select from.

    Cons

    Workloads can be challenging within certain client groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to seek the perspective of line employees as you evaluate company decisions and direction.

    I have been working at Cartus full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, work life balance, good people. This company is good for young professionals that are just getting started and looking for opportunities to grow! Certain departments really focus on talent management and promoting from within. There is opportunity for flexible schedules so this makes the work life balance good for most. Company is very good about trying to provide amenities on site for the staff.

    Cons

    Some of the benefits could be better priced for employees, and salary could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your follks what they are worth and recognize talent young

    Pros

    City's second largest employer with a commitment to stay within the current location.

    Cons

    Nepotism abounds. Not a place to be if you want to fast track your career. Or even "medium pace" track your career.

    Pros

    It is a good company to start your career in Global Mobility field.

    Cons

    The company does not provide tools for the employees to grow. If you manager is not interested to grow their staff, there is a little guidance available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the salaries are not high and the caseloads are large, the company should find a better way to keep the employees happy.
