    I have been working at The Chartis Group full-time (More than a year)

    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 health.

    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 differential is small, though I suspect it grows as you rise in your role. This is a tradeoff I am willing to make, however, with the unique nature of our work and the wonderful culture we continue to maintain.

    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.

    Great company on the forefront of Management Consulting and IT Consulting in the Medical Industry. This company will make a difference in how patients, doctors and administrators deal with the complex health issues concerning the United States.

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

    Advice to Management

    Realize the value of your employees and make sure that they do not burn out.

    I have been working at The Chartis Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the projects are very interesting, some of the people are very talented and reasonable to work with. For consulting, the work/life balance isn't terrible.

    Cons

    Some of the managers are pretty unskilled. The company seems to balance ability to play politics over people who have genuinely good management skills. Like any company, there are a few snakes. Also, the compensation is lagging the industry a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like management has some degree of self-awareness about growth opportunities. It feels like they're trying to address some of the bad project experiences and reign in some of the rogue management. Also, they may be looking into compensation and trying to improve it. It feels like it took a while for management to uncover that there were some deep problems before they were willing to seriously look at things or make changes.

    Pros

    Great culture. Mission-driven firm that truly lives by its values. Truly a privilege to work with my Chartis colleagues to serve our clients.

    Cons

    The firm has experienced tremendous growth and along with it has come the predictable growing pains. The firm leadership is still struggling to feel like a boutique firm while having a much greater footprint than it did in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Consider further growth in a thoughtful, measured, and purposeful way with a clear view as to the impact it will have on the firm's culture and our ability to serve our clients in more meaningful and comprehensive ways.

    Pros

    Some of the best "people" in the consulting industry - mission-driven and committed to each other and their work. Reputation in the marketplace is very strong and ever-improving. Great opportunities for anyone committed to working in and improving healthcare delivery.

    Cons

    The firm is growing quickly, and as a result people are frequently spread thin. Sometimes it doesn't feel quite the same as it used to when it was only 50-100 employees.

    Advice to Management

    You've created a great place to work and grow. Continue to focus on your people - competitive comp, benefits, and environment will keep your employees satisfied.

    Pros

    This is a fantastic place to be. You will be surrounded by thoughtful, intelligent, driven, and truly kind people. Clients are top-notch provider organizations across the country, and the work is very meaningful. I really feel like I can make a difference at Chartis.

    Cons

    Firm connectivity is always difficult with a job that requires so much travel. I feel very connected to my teams, but it is difficult to maintain constant communication across the firm. The firm's retreat and office days are always a great time to catch up with other colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing. You have my full trust.
