Featured Review

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at MetLife full-time

Pros

healthy work, life balance, opportunities for growth and ability to move between groups

Cons

Salary level lower, difference between investments scale and corporate scale in compensation

"Great Company!"Jul 23, 2021

Current Employee - GL Claims Representative

I have been working at The Hartford full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Diversity, Management Transparency, work from home opportunities for those that prefer it, Rejection of Chubb buyout-Thank you!! Great supervisor and team support! Many opportunities within the... company.

Cons

Recent restructure of claims handling responsibilities requiring senior level work load without a pay/tier adjustment. Forcing employees (who are not interested) into litigation roles with little... training/heavy workload/No pay increase.

Advice to Management

Fewer/shorter meetings...Opportunities for interested GL employees to handle litigation at a slower pace with more training. Please evaluate salaries and adjust accordingly. Keep up the transparency... and culture!
