OK for now..., Future uncertain

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Chartis Insurance Company full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGood strong corp of steady employees..., the ones who are left. Employees sincerely have the company's well being at heart. Leadership is doing the best that it can given it's challenges.

ConsGood employees are being subjected and eliminated by a GE type employee assessment model. This new process is now the vehicle that is being used to reduce headcount and is its only value. It is a poor means to fairly evaluate employees' performance. It creates an environment of employees doing only what is required to have a good PA and Peer Review. It completely eliminates employee's desire to help one another. The environment is now adversarial vs. entrepreneurial.
Additionally, an atmosphere of “Bullying Bosses” is allowed. This is true if the manager appears to be delivering results. Managers, having a history of bullying employees, have had records of this behavior minimalized or expunged altogether from their HR records.

Advice to Senior Management- Discard the peer review process and standardize roles and responsibilities.
- Remove managers who are Bullying Bosses and replace them with one who can lead..., not push.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

New York, NY

I worked at Chartis Insurance Company as a contractor for less than a year


Pros: The Science group has lots of interesting projects. Cons: This is a newly formed group, which I felt moved like a rudderless ship. It is dominated by MBA culture. The name SCIENCE is only… Advice to Senior Management: First try to understand how scientific projects are done. Plan the projects properly and initially try to solve the problem locally before involving off-shore researchers.… More
