I have been working at The Hartford full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Well know and well respected place to work. The Hartford Army as it know in the field.

Cons

The Hartford on the West coast in my 5 years had 3 managers, and a year without a manager. Not good. The left hand does not know what the right hand is doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    To get your foot in the door of the Insurance industry if you are stuck in a sales job.

    Cons

    They do not pay competitive wages compared to some of their competitors. Very little in the way of career development even though the company continues to boast about how much they care about their employees development, there is not support or time provided towards it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NA. Company is being sold off bit by bit, so no one can tell what the company will look like after all the the pieces are gone.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Hartford was a great place to start a career. There is a ton of work to be done and experiences to be had. Everyone I had the privilege to work with was genuine and committed to the company. The Hartford puts huge emphasis on giving back to the community, which is a very admirable trait.

    Cons

    The hierarchy and structure make it difficult to drive innovative solutions. The technological infrastructure is a big obstacle, as it probably is with many other large traditional companies that try to compete with young, agile tech companies for a positive digital experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people the flexibility and tools to work virtually so that top talent can be found from different ares of the country. The greater Hartford area has a limited pool of talent.
