    Pros

    Great people work there
    Good training for new hires
    Established company

    Cons

    Poor employee development - you will never find out about or be consulted about opportunities in other departments

    Management by metrics - more more more...

    Managers spend all their time working on reports for upper management so they don't have time for their direct reports

    Bonus structure gets less transparent and shrinks despite good results - work harder but front line people don't get rewarded or appreciated

    Advice to Management

    Expect rapid exodus among employees if current style of management is continued

    Pros

    A lot of vacation time. Some of the people are nice, and helpful.

    Cons

    the managers suck, they are emotionless to an tragic event that may have happened in your life, its like oh well, what about your numbers for this month. the pay IS NOT up to par with other insurance companies for all that is required of you. no flexibility in work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    show some type of empathy. the hartford is loosing GREAT people, and its like you don't care. that door will continue to revolve, and you will continue to spend money on training, just to have people quit. we dont feel valued at the hartford.

    Pros

    If benefits are what is important to you then this is a good company. Great PTO and health benefits and a retirement.

    Cons

    Poor management all around. Hire kids out of college with no life or work experience to be a manger so they can work ungodly hours fr little pay

    Advice to Management

    I cant say what management should do. Get back to hiring people who can think on ttheir feet and problem solve with out some on looking over their shoulder?
