    I have been working at Cartus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    37 hour work week

    Cons

    No work life balance. They don’t pay a living wage, they don’t care about your family. They give you a hard time about overtime and expect you to do the work of 2-3 people in the 7.5 hours a day you are scheduled to work. They have poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the people who work hard and stop making excuses for the people who don’t work.

    I worked at Cartus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance is amazing. If you work at the HQ, they have a convenience store, dry cleaning, and in house doctor. Something you really miss after you leave. For the most part, co-workers are really good and definitely the type of place where I made friends.

    Cons

    How much you like the job really depends on the manager. There are really good ones and really bad ones. Pay is abysmal, literally pay 5 figures less than other companies. Even if you are a standout employee, don't expect raises or promotions.

    Advice to Management

    You need to hire within the departments. You need to give better raises and better salaries or else you will keep losing employees.

    I have been working at Cartus full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full benefits for full time employees ( medical, dental, vision and 401K); full service gym and closer parking to the building for a low monthly fee.

    Cons

    The salary is very low in comparison to other companies, the more you prove capacity to do well your job you have more responsibilities for the same salary. The increase per year for merit increase is less than 2%.

    Advice to Management

    More competitive salaries are needed.

    I have been working at Cartus full-time

    Pros

    Good stepping stone in career. The Fortune 500 companies typically work with Cartus, and is a bonus during interviews with those larger corporations

    Cons

    Pay isn’t comparable to the market
    Benefits are no longer considered good, at best I would use the phrase “I probably won’t die”
    Took money from state in exchange for creating 200 jobs, but the company keeps laying large numbers off.

    Advice to Management

    The good workers and over loaded while the bad ones get to skate by... obviously because the good ones are picking up their slack. It’s not fair.
    Don’t hire idiots.
    Don’t assume that because people have a degree that they are smart or good workers.
    Don’t assume that people who don’t complain are happy with their job.
    Do more for your team. The backbone of the company are the analysts, specialists and consultants. Not upper management. Include bonuses. Include gifts. Incentives. Anything

    Stop being so superficial and giving certain people favors.
