I worked at The Hartford full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great at first. Great training. Great Salary. Great Benefits. Great co-workers.

Cons

Depending on your position, it is cheaper for them to re-hire and re-train, than to continue paying yearly raises, additional vacation pay, and, 100% vesting for 401k. They use psychological tactics, bullying, and mobbing practices by supervisors and managers designed to affect your work, and to make you leave, rather then let you go. , They will even withhold your work, or calls to make you fail. There are no laws to protect you from this behavior in the USA. If your in sales 5 -7years max, customer service, they expect 2 year attrition. for most, other wise 5-7 years. . Rating department seems a safe bet.

Advice to Management

Hire by contract, therefore allowing employees to move on, rather than use bullying and psychological attacks on them causing them great distress and even PTSD.. Well documented in the UK, and, Australia.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, although you pay a lot for health insurance and it doesn't cover a lot with high deductables. Great time off, although very hard to get the days off you actually need.

    Cons

    Very stressful, demand way too much. Treat you like your disposable. No one knows what their doing. Very bad managers. Many jobs out-sourced. They use metrics that depends on your teeny raise, don't expect much more.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like slaves. Managers have their favorites. Get with the times, stop hiring people off the street and treat older employees with respect.
