    Applications Developer (Current Employee)
    Hartford, CT

    ProsThe company has been good to me. My career is on the rise and they are paying for me to go back to school.

    ConsLots of changes of late but I am happy to still be here

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome better raises would be nice.

    Place to build a career

    Agency Care (Current Employee)
    Santee, CA

    ProsExcellent training and support as a new hire to set you up for success.The coworkers are friendly and suuportive and leadership seems genuinely dedicated to customers and their people. Most Managers have worked as Reps so they understand and can be very supportive. Great place to build your career with tuition reimbursement and promotions to different roles and management possible after a couple if years. Benefits are good, salary is OK but you can earn awards and incentives. Work from home option can be available after a year or two also.

    ConsWork can be challenging with lots of metrics about your performance. This is not a good place for just a job, more like a career place to come, learn and get advancement. Leaders serious about performance and will help you get ahead and be successful. Been there 3 yes and can say you will get out of it what you put in. Work hard and you can get good career advancement,help with tuition and hours that work for you. Lots of overtime available which can be a good thing if you like $.

    Advice to Senior ManagementComputer systems are s bit dated. Would like to see more remote work opptys. Overall great company, great people to work with and for.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great experience working for the Hartford

    Claims Adjuster (Current Employee)
    Lake Mary, FL

    ProsAn old company with strong roots, currently changing into to a younger more adaptive company to keep up with today's speed.

    ConsWith much change, positive feedback can be over looked from time to time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining could be improved.

    Awesome culture & benefits. Work itself isn't exciting

    Process Engineer (Current Employee)
    Hartford, CT

    ProsWork/life balance was good. Could work remotely whenever I needed to due to weather, mid-day doctor's appointments, etc. Culture at The Hartford is awesome - everyone is willing to help and open door policy with everyone. Pay, as with all insurance companies, was great.

    ConsCan be boring at times. It's an old company that needs to be more innovative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe Hartford used to have a lot of perks that they don't anymore. There should be more sponsored events, picnics, etc. Need more innovation to keep up with competitors. Things like White Stag should be a norm.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company

    Vice President (Current Employee)

    Good place to grow in your career.

    Senior Auditor (Current Employee)
    Hartford, CT

    ProsThere is a strong focus on growing your skills and advancing your career within Internal Audit. They don't want you staying at the same point any more than you do, and work to give you good assignments to help you grow. The flexibility and work/life balance is fantastic within the department. While there are some projects that will have you working some extra hours every now and then, the hours are otherwise very consistent, and the ability to work from home when needed is encouraged and supported.

    The corporate benefits are pretty solid as well, in terms of a generous 401k, free on-site gym and health facilities, and opportunities to reduce your healthcare premium through healthy activities.

    ConsSince 2008, the company has been undergoing constant change, in terms of selling businesses, closing offices, and retooling remaining businesses. The technology is quite outdated, though they finally started to replace much of the old technology in 2013 and will continue to do so over the coming few years.
