People tend to get "trapped" in insurance. The pay is great, but the job is not fulfilling.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good (paid time off, 401k match, pension).
    Work-life balance is great (remote and flexible work options).
    Communication is okay.

    Cons

    The company is poor at execution, so change is very slow.
    The management is not adequately developped, so poor management is rampant across the company. Also, it is top-heavy.
    The company does a bad job aligning the top levels goals to the lower level employees priorities.

    Pros

    reasonable compensation but you're a slave to insidious layers of CYA'ers

    Cons

    weak management more focused on their own career preservation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try doing the right thing instead of the easy thing
