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

Pros

Strong support for alternative work styles such as telecommuting. With some exceptions, achievement is rewarded financially. Has a leadership that is comfortable with change and is aggressively evolving.

Cons

Working for any public company ultimately puts Shareholder value ahead of Customer value. Forced distribution of employee ranking can result in some unintended bad management behavior. IT systems are a major inhibitor to innovation and progress.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bite the bullet and spend the billions to re-invent the internal IT systems support infrastructure.

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time for 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.
