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 Management

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

    Pros

    You had opportunities to advance within the company, if at least you knew the right person to talk to. The pay, as in most financial sector businesses, is pretty good considering the job.

    Cons

    There were a lot of people who took themselves very seriously. That's not my type of thing and my personal opinion, but there were other downsides. Within the company there was a lack of cooperation or willingness between teams (eg, between certain claim handling teams and the front desk or contact team). Sometimes I felt there was nepotism going on. The atmosphere was not great either, it felt like saying hello and chatting to people was a facade.

    Advice to Management

    Create an honest, lasting business culture, and a better atmosphere.
