I worked at Chartis Insurance Company full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Opportunity exists to pursue unlimited career paths within the organization. High earning potential and most employees want to do a good job and are pleasant to work with. Could be a great place to work if environment were different.

Cons

Disorganization due to multiple leadership changes. No long term strategy and too many directional changes makes it difficult to meet ever changing expectations. Company is very siloed with little cross departmental communication or coordination, and duplication of effort and expense. Advancement is not based on capability, but on relationships. Falling out of favor with someone in upper management could cost you your career as you are viewed as "damaged goods" and opportunities to move to other areas suddenly disappear. Many employees performance expectations and goals are not set until mid-review making achievement difficult. Unfortunately, employees are subject to a very punitive management style. Internal politics are not for the faint of heart.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employee with respect and managements should do the right thing, not just what is popular. Take responsibility and be accountable to the work environment and the overall health of your employees. They are your most valuable asset.

    I have been working at Chartis Insurance Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is incredible. The company will give you the world if you ask for it. The building is also located in a great location, right on Water Street, with Chelsea Peer and the Brooklyn Bridge just around the corner.

    Cons

    This is a company with a lot of potential, but I find that the company provides very little appreciation for long working hours and hard work. Given the company is located in downtown NY, many personalities are very difficult to get along with. Almost everyong I've spoken to finds the work to be extremely unrewarding, and the company focuses heavily to find the best talent to provide amongst the most menial work tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company has made vast improvements over the years, but the culture still needs some work.

    Get (under)paid to go to high school.

    I worked at Chartis Insurance Company full-time

    Pros

    Gives new college grads corporate work experience, including various types of software and communicating with colleagues at various levels.

    Cons

    VERY clique-y. A few full grown adults, but the vast majority are very, very clique-y.
    Promotions, raises, etc felt dependent on who you socialized with as much as or more than the work you did.
    It was like getting (under)paid to go to high school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire adults who are sociable, but want to work...not people who want to re-create their high school glory days.
