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

Pros

Ability for growth, bonuses and growing your career within the company and great potential for salary growth as well as a lot of recognition for your hard work. starting pay is around $12/hour but starting in the contact center puts you at $15/hr. the vacation time and benefits can't be beat! 19 days of vacation!

Cons

It's best to start out in the call center but then move on from it after no more than 2 years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

remain more properly staffed, don't hold some people back and push others forward and any type of micro-management is counter productive. trust that your employees will work, there's no need to hover over them. Also, when they make a suggestion really listen and follow through, don't let them feel unheard.

    I worked at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    Learned a lot about metrics, analytics, strategy and had great opportunities to grow as a leader

    Cons

    SIgnificant senior leadership change over the time I was there. This lead to a difficult and challenging political environment. Things may be stabilizing post TARP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch out about getting into too much of the "good old boy" system when it comes to selecting leaders....focus on skills and merit for a management development program that develops true skills with actual talent.
