Director Program Management

Director Program Management (Current Employee)
Hartford, CT

I have been working at The Hartford full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat work/life balance, good starting pay, excellent leadership team, great flexibility to change positions via internal job posting process

ConsPoor salary increases over time, manages by consensus so decisions take a long time, too many good people have recently left the company and this is crippling the organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe merit review system is broken. It's a demotivator and should be scrapped.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I am a happy employee of HIG

Billing Specialist (Current Employee)
Clinton, NY

I have been working at The Hartford full-time

ProsThe 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.

ConsThere 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
