    I worked at The Hartford

    Pros

    Go-forward business is now P/C. Phasing out of the life business.

    Cons

    The company is moving people around in different areas of CT Hartford area. One of the buildings is being sold relatively soon.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Allentown, PA

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training, compensation, very family oriented and community friendly organization. Generous amount of PTO and opportunity to go home early when the phones are slow. I think this is a good employer to work for if you are used to the call center environment.

    Cons

    Long hours, weekends, constantly on the phone. Only able to be off the phone for 15 minutes per day other than when you are on your lunch break. This includes time to go the bathroom. I think this is a good company to work for if you are used to the call center environment.

    Pros

    I have only been with the company for a few short months but what a wonderful first impression! The support through training has been the best I have ever experienced. I hope this delight with the Hartford continues as I grow with the company. There are many benefits to Hartford employees such as a generous tuition reimbursement program, 401k, and medical. I personally love the Hartford's involvement in charity events and it's long standing reputation of being one of the world most ethical companies.

    Cons

    I have not found any cons yet.

    I worked at The Hartford as an intern

    Pros

    Their development programs for undergraduate students are fantastic if you are still trying to develop your skills and find your proper career path. The work-life balance is exceptional, as are salary, benefits, and opportunities for internal advancement- they almost always promote from within. Additionally, their people and corporate values are some of the friendliest and most supportive I've ever come across.

    Cons

    Location (Hartford), fairly conservative decision-making environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company seems to be going in the right direction. Kudos to former CEO Liam McGhee for the turnaround.
