    Pros

    Really put the interns first with seminars, training at HQ office, and mentors

    I worked at Chartis Insurance Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Group of highly motivated A Type personalities. Co-workers are friendly and pressure to perform is high. Overall a great experience for a short period of time to learn how the company works and is set up.

    Cons

    Very production oriented environment. All about making goal EACH week. Find yourself quoting against other parts of the company for the same business. Way, way, way too many sales/marketing calls required for Underwriters.

    Most processes were manual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many departments competing for the same business. Need better coordination between departments. Didn't feel like senior management had any interest in preparing employees for advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    Focus on improving their technology across the board via upgrades.

    Cons

    Limited communication across systems and incomplete data source.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend a complete overall of the technology systems.

    I worked at Chartis Insurance Company full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Salary, and benefits are pretty good. 9-5 hours.

    Cons

    Not sure if it was post bailout, but the place was really gloomy. All employees were counting was for 5 o'clock so they could go home. I felt that the company was too large to do anything. I felt like I couldn't really do anything. There were too many people with overlapping responsibilities to get anything done. Also, there were many redundancies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate redundancies.
