Current Employee - Billing Specialist in Clinton, NY

I have been working at The Hartford full-time

Pros

The company spends alot of money on its employees and I am very happy there. They are always doing employee engagement activities and it makes the work day go by very quickly. I work with a great group of people and its my home away from home.

Cons

There are few cons for me, I'm trying to be a remote worker and there is a long wait for me. This is the only thing I can think of at the moment. Many companies don't do remote workers at all, so really this is also a pro.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Woodbury, MN

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - PTO (19 days for new hires, 40 hours credited almost immediately, and the option to purchase an additional 40 hours of PTO so that's almost 5 weeks!)
    - Annual bonus (mines was $1000), compensation for CSR is competitive
    - lots of benefits (excluding vision) and company perks/discounts
    - very structured organization (has its con as well)
    - mgmt/executives keeps you in the loop with organizational changes for the most part (corporate wide emails and townhall meetings)
    - remote work opportunities even in the CSR level

    Cons

    - micromanaging seems to be embedded in the managers and the organization as a whole; you'd think perhaps its only applicable to CSR but even switching depts to Finance for instance, you're still told WHEN you can leave before you're ALLOWED to leave
    - raises are meager, $.24 for completing "milestones" with the opportunity to as soon as you're on the floor/start working but it's capped after 2 raises if you don't plan to take the career path in CS and each position requires you to stay a year before posting out internally.
    - lots of divisions were sold including Life Insurance and Annuities is going into runoff which resulted in many fearing for their job security and rightfully so bc The Hartford only occupies one/five floor at their Woodbury location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging and learn to trust your subordinates or you will continue to make employees lack job satisfaction which will result in a high turnover, if it isn't already.
