I worked at The Hartford full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Pay is high end especially in IT were I worked. Benefits are well above average. Nice yearly bonuses. The Shuttle system for off-site parking is very convenient. Security guards do a very well job also. The food & staff is tremendous.

Cons

I worked as a Help Desk analyst last 7 years of 13 yrs. You can never work fast enough and are always viewed as being behind the 8 ball my management. Lack of respect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You lost allot of talented employees starting around 2008 because of outsourcing and early retirement. Value more your true professionals make them feel important and not just another
number.

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-workers. great office location. ability to work from home.

    Cons

    micromanaged like crazy. case loads are too large. you have to work 46 hours per week to keep within standards, but are paid for 40-hours. managers override nurse clinicians constantly. new procedures are rolled out without being tested. different offices have different claims management procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your nurses' and adjusters' work. Enough with the micromanagement. Really use Six Sigma methodology, don't just pretend. Beta test before implementing new procedures. stop sending work from other offices to the Atlanta and Minneapolis offices to clean up. Advice to home office: you have way to many managers, you can make due with half the number.

    Pros

    Free parking, free fitness center, onsite health clinic

    Cons

    The Company has been around forever but poor management caused the company to underperform and the morale since the stock market crash has been terrible. Layoffs looming constantly, hiring outisde the company rather than promoting from within when there are positions to fill
