    I have been working at The Chartis Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Small tight knit firm. Wins a lot of industry leading work and positions you to be a thought leader in the market. Leadership works with new team members to assess how they are fitting into the team and the firm. Leadership is passionate about growing team members to take on new challenges and build thier skill set.

    Cons

    Small teams which makes some of the team very top heavy with leadership

    Advice to Management

    I worked at The Chartis Group full-time

    Pros

    They do pay out nice bonuses, so if you stay there, you can collect over time. Some of the partners are great to work with. The rest of it is pretty similar to any consulting gig - high pay for high travel/hours, lots of time doing gritty work with miserable people.

    Cons

    The company is in flux, part-owned by PE. This structure affects the employee experience as they brought in unrelated businesses as an attempt to raise the exit multiple. They don't have strong team controls to ensure employee growth and satisfaction. Many of the managers are not good people leaders. A lot of the more tenured people at the firm have been in the healthcare industry for a long time and have good consulting...

    Advice to Management

    Management does not typically take advice from what I have seen.

    I have been working at The Chartis Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Emphasis on teamwork and learning culture. People are very friendly in person.

    Cons

    New hires are staffed without regard to previous experience and expected to fill the mold of those who grow up in the firm. "Chartis Family" seems to be a good recruiting term, but there is little training and onboarding to make you feel welcome and a part of the organization, so you feel like an outsider at a very small firm. Lack of diversity results in narrow focus and approach and shows little regard to thinking...

      Neutral Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at The Chartis Group full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Typical consulting work, fast paced, you will learn a lot. Lots of exposure to C-suite clients. Travel less than most firms.

      Cons

      Very small teams, with poorly aligned staffing. No consideration for seniority, or past experience when staffing is made; brand new people are put on teams where they are the only full-time person and left to flounder. If you are newer to consulting, a firm with more support and larger teams may be beneficial.

      Advice to Management

      Tweak your recruiting process in order to ensure goals are aligned with reality.

      Pros

      Great people, great clients - still rare to find such high-quality group focusing primarily on provider-based strategies

      Cons

      Growing company going through transition period - project staffing and support occasionally rough, especially for junior-level consultants and managers. Management was more focused on company culture in the past, changing as the firm is growing.

      Pros

      Mission-driven work at the forefront of healthcare strategy. There is a direct link between our projects and patient care, and my colleagues share a deeply held passion for the work we do. Relative to other consulting firms, we seem to take on more interesting and impactful engagements. We don't really do cost work/supply chain/etc. and instead focus on things like clinical strategy/enterprise strategy/transition to population...

      Cons

      We have been doing fairly lean staffing on projects in the last year, which can lead to long hours and heavy workloads. The upside is that younger consultants often get direct, enriching experience with partners. Management knows that this can present challenges, and is doing a good job of communicating how they plan to address this. Additionally, compensation is not quite on par with other top consulting firms. The...

      Advice to Management

      The culture is a big draw, so focus on maintaining it. More work needs to be put into growing our brand at top MBA and grad schools. Continue to work on setting competitive compensation.

      The company has a lot of work but not enough employees to cover all of its needs.
