    I worked at Cartus full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Thorough training, decent pay, good amount of PTO, nice amenities.

    Cons

    Every department feels like a different company. Managers pick and choose which rules to enforce and when. Management is rarely on your side, and won’t stick up for you. Upper management sees you as a number, not a person.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is key. Listen to and care about your employees.

    "File Set up"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Danbury, CT

      I worked at Cartus full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Nice cafeteria and free coffee

      Cons

      Hire you as a temp. If you struggle early in the training you’re basically ignored by the trainer or told to ‘figure it out’ when you have a question. Then someone asks the same question and is given the answer. The second your numbers go slightly down they get rid of you. Management is clueless. They aren’t qualified, they’ve just been at the company long enough to get the position.

      Advice to Management

      Find a new job.

      I have been working at Cartus full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Historically the company cared for their employees and global citizenship. Flexibility was good.

      Cons

      Poor management. Layoffs almost every year. Family atmosphere and global citizenship a sham. No clear direction. Poor pay.

      Advice to Management

      Change has been constant but not all for the better. Need right the ship somehow and decide what kind of company you are and want to be.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Cartus full-time

      Pros

      Great teammates, company events and flexibility at some departments with work-life balance.

      Cons

      No opportunities for advancement due to a small office size in Redmond and the head office located in Danbury.

      Advice to Management

      Be more open minded about employee issues, let and offer anyone requesting to work from home to do so( this job is on the phone and computer= call center) this would promote loyalty and improve the morale. Please reduce the phrase: "I have a business to run here".
