I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great remote working capabilities, flexible work schedules & telecommuting culture.

Cons

It all looks good on paper but nothing ever gets fully implemented before the next "New" model is rolled out negating the previous model.

    Pros

    Company took care of top performers and there were some very talented people. Was a good name brand for a number of years.

    Cons

    Things have taken a turn for the worst, and the company will never be the same. There has been a mass exodus of talent.

    Advice to Management

    Salvage what you can and get the stock price and dividend back up for us retirees.

    "Conservative culture now fully driven by "metrics""

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Open communication - Front line managers (are supposed to) meet monthly with their direct reports.

    OK benefits - Able to purchase 1 extra week of PTO per year. Their health insurance plan isn't the greatest. Benefits available the first day at work.

    Remote Work - Allowing a lot more employees to work 100% remotely from home.

    Cons

    Relationships with customers and brokers now devalued by emphasis on grinding out sales and meeting metrics. Metrics rule nearly every decision.

    Probably the most conservative insurance company in the already conservative insurance industry.

    Constant reorganizations and upper management driven plans to improve processes, etc. It eventually becomes a fugue of B School speak with little substance...as if executives' purpose is to enact master plans that counteract and reverse course every five years.

    Waves of foreign outsourcing that competitors are using against The Hartford in attempts to win business.

    A lot of talk about employee development but little money or action applied to it.
