    Pros

    Great Training, Great benefits, Opportunities to advance in the company, Good pay.

    Cons

    The Hartford really is a great company to work for and it is hard to say a Con, because if you aren't happy as with any company make another choice. A person's attitude determines their altitude. It's a choice to come in everyday and give it the best you got and if you give your best The Hartford will reward you. Any cons can turn into a pro.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    This is a high morale field sales office. They place a value on learning. The cubicle setup gives you your space & the comraderie at the office will certainly lead to friendtly interaction over the walls. Worth looking into.

    Cons

    Should have explored more career opportunities within organization. The office has big turnover, so be prepared to be in contact with colleagues as they move careers

    Advice to Management

    Continue the inclusive behavior with all cultures. Continue welcoming & celebrating festivals/observances of all cultures in office

    Great people to work with, positive environment, good hours, understanding management

    Cons

    Can be very hypocritical (managers), seems like the tell you one thing during interviews but in reality you're expexted to do the complete opposit

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and be honest with them, if we can't do something, don't tell us we can but then get mad when we do

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    Historically supported employee transfer between business units which is great to build a career. Recently I've observed that this is becoming more difficult. Recent investments in Personal Lines executive leadership team are encouraging.

    Cons

    Experience will vary greatly depending on the states assigned and mostly on the manager. Tools & data to do analysis are tough to work with(incomplete, weakly documented, unstable). Turnover is very common in technical product manager/pricing roles likely related to competitively low pay, poor tools and political environment. It's a challenging place to feel successful. Re-organization is common and while it may look to improve efficiency on paper, experience at desk level is difficult. Frequent shifts in tactical direction.

    Advice to Management

    Goals are not aligned well.

    I worked at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    They recognize the need to provide a career path for staff and are deliberate about doing so. They work to understand customer needs and set their structure accordigly.

    Cons

    Tbey do a good job of developing people but there are limited higer level positions. The more skilled people get the greater the challenge of retaining them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing people but create roles to retain them when there are no openings in traditional higher level positions.
