    I worked at Chartis Insurance Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The money can be a good incentive to attract new recruits.

    Cons

    The hours (employees provide round-the-clock support on two 8-hour shifts). The training provided were insufficient for the job. The management was seriously lacking in competence and tends to rely heavily on selected employees instead of training others to be better and more resourceful to enhance performance. Politics were in abundance at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act before you begin work on the operational level. Review your training/induction courses to get a feel if they are indeed suitable for a newcomer who may find work on the first day very intimidating.
