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

    Flexible work environment. Company is on a valiant attempt to turn itself around by refocusing its business model.

    Cons

    Management has grown into a large matrix filled with VPs. Most of the IT work has been outsourced and lost its competitive edge. CIO leadership is a revolving door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in top talent and move to a agile model. Prune upper level management to get more accountability.
