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

Pros

None, anymore. Used to be a great company. Congratulations Board of Directors on driving this company into the ground, When can we expect YOUR resignation.

Cons

Shortsighted management, business direction, lack of culture, no career progression potential, cutthroat environment, weak Brand, lack of retention of superior talent, massive outsourcing. Zero commitment to employees. Zero desire to build future leaders. Middle management is busy protecting their jobs to affect needed changes. And the board of directors eats babies. Infighting... Operations assaults the budget of Underwriting. Senior UW's gets pulled to take service calls regularly. Thus who can easily flee, are doing so in droves.

Advice to Management

Sales without strong underwriting and quality is an equation for disaster in an already difficult market. You have a retention problem. Gone is the company I was proud to work for.

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are awesome. Some management understands work life balance.

    Cons

    Pay is not great. This company does not believe in promoting from within. Management is all about themselves. Everything is corporate and involves a consult with the legal department. They hode based on who they know. Diversity and inclusion means absolutely nothing! They outsource a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Relax. Stop showing favortism to unqualified friends and then wondering why your department or office is underperforming the other locations.

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In general, you get a chance to work with people who are down to earth. Colleagues are easy going. We also support to each other well.

    Cons

    I did not find any internal politics that normally bother. Some people may find that there is a lack of clear picture in term of career path within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    It is good to see many people still get in touch with each other after they leave the company.
