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

Pros

I had some great moments with The Hartford; when the company was willing to take some risks there was a great chance to innovate. The sales force (esp mutual funds and annuities) were top-notch.

Cons

Senior management lacks vision and recently has been guided more by activist shareholders than real strategy. People who are lazy and refuse to take accountability can hide in the ranks. The performance review systems is a joke.

    Pros

    Opportunities for personal growth, including training, to further one's career and marketability. Traditional financial services company with a long history of protecting his insureds.

    Cons

    The environment is very political with promotions based on who you know and answer "yes" to vs. what you know and your contributions. Decisions are made very slowly, and the culture is not conducive to positive change.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your employees, especially those in change leadership positions who are accountable to identify and drive positive change in the organization.
