    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rapid ability to move up the corporate ladder due to constant revolving door

    Cons

    People put in management positions who have no ability to be great managers/leaders, micro-management all the way from the top down. A lot of "back stabbers." Job required staying late and coming in on the weekends [amazing how may people would actually be in the office on a Saturday afternoon]. Wages and or salaries are not inline with other "top carriers." Saw numerous people go to lunch and never return. In a 2 year span I had over 5 different supervisors and two different managers, all with different agenda's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and evaluate the situation/big picture , don't need an MBA from Headquarters to do that!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
