    I have been working at The Phoenix Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Phoenix culture is one of a kind. I continuously feel like I am part of a team and add value to my department as well as the company. Working at Phoenix has also provided the opportunity to develop myself and further my career.

    Cons

    At points in time, there are too many cooks in the kitchen and it's difficult to move towards the final goal.

    Advice to Management

    This is already part of the culture shift, but limiting the bureaucracy would help move projects.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Phoenix Companies in January 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted based on my resume which was submitted for another position. There was a 30 minute phone interview, which led to 2 face to face interviews at the Hartford headquarters. I met with the Director of two associated departments. The interview was pretty standard. At the end, the Human Resources employee came in to see how it went, and if I would still be interested after hearing more about the position. I definitely was.
