    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    The merit review system is broken. It's a demotivator and should be scrapped.

    Pros

    I started off as an entry level employee, however, because of my solid work ethic, I was able to move up very quickly internally, much faster than I have at any other company. They enjoy promoting from within and developing talent.

    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.
