    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have only been with the company for a few short months but what a wonderful first impression! The support through training has been the best I have ever experienced. I hope this delight with the Hartford continues as I grow with the company. There are many benefits to Hartford employees such as a generous tuition reimbursement program, 401k, and medical. I personally love the Hartford's involvement in charity events and it's long standing reputation of being one of the world most ethical companies.

    Cons

    I have not found any cons yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management team have been beyond supportive!

    Pros

    Benefits, training, coworkers, time off, open door policy

    Cons

    Being tied to a desk, the job is very isolating as you are constantly attached to the phone and very rarely get to interact with your co-workers face to face

    Pros

    The PTO policy is pretty great. There is room for growth provided you're in the right area. If you work hard and have a plan you should do well.

    Cons

    Mid-level management is very resistant to change. It can be quite difficult to work in this type of environment under that type of disconnect. Work/life balance isn't always consistent. Mid-level management has some major opportunities.

    Pros

    diverse work community, many employer based programs and good benefits.

    Cons

    In the claims organization, it is a lot of long hours and triple the workload per person. as long as you are willing to work twice as hard than a normal job, then this is for you. you will need ability to multi task and be able to tolerate the phone 90% of you day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow more work life balance. overloading workloads does not allow an employee to feel successful if they are buried under and cannot reach unattainable goals and metrics. the metrics do not reflect the workload given.

    Doesn't Recommend
