    Pros

    I've been at The Hartford for 8 years. Overall, it has been a fantastic experience. The company has a strong focus on employee development, high standards of ethics and compliance and an experienced senior leadership team.

    Cons

    Still work to be done from a process efficiency perspective. However, we have recently launched an internal program to encourage employees to submit and take ownership of process efficiency ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Continue focus on creating customer value, ethical behaviors and strong financial performance.

    Pros

    This is my first job out of college and i could not have landed at a better company. Some people complain about this place but they are the types that will complain no matter what. Harford offers a good work- life balance, great benefits, lots of vacation, great culture, lots of room for advancement. Right now the office I am in is in a transitional period but management is aware and very accommodating. I am proud to work here.

    Cons

    It's claims, and enough said. The technology is not the best and in some aspects outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees to promote growth and retention. Keep investing in better technology.
