A storied company, a case study in poor management; no real talent or innovation

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Hartford, CT

I worked at The Hartford full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDedicated group of long time employees, waiting for the new set of management to move on

ConsThe browner the nose, the higher you go. No real talent needed. Management has decided that a consultant's opinion is worth its weight in gold. Operational efficiency gets you only so much, no real plans to grow the business. The company is over, no interest from the market to buy the boat anchor.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest about your workforce targets and what you hope to get out of efficiency. McKinsey decks get you so far, winning in the market comes out of a commitment and choice. Your strategy of selling one business unit per quarter is good, you need to move faster

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
