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

Pros

Very flexible work environment and freedom to work on research that will make an impact at the company

Cons

Project management is poorly done. All the pieces people are working on don't often come together nicely as a result

Advice to Management

You are good at hiring talented researchers. Try to focus on hiring some talented project managers. It is a boring, un-glamerous role

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ability for growth, bonuses and growing your career within the company and great potential for salary growth as well as a lot of recognition for your hard work. starting pay is around $12/hour but starting in the contact center puts you at $15/hr. the vacation time and benefits can't be beat! 19 days of vacation!

    Cons

    It's best to start out in the call center but then move on from it after no more than 2 years

    Advice to Management

    remain more properly staffed, don't hold some people back and push others forward and any type of micro-management is counter productive. trust that your employees will work, there's no need to hover over them. Also, when they make a suggestion really listen and follow through, don't let them feel unheard.
