Pros

Flexible work environment. Company is on a valiant attempt to turn itself around by refocusing its business model.

Cons

Management has grown into a large matrix filled with VPs. Most of the IT work has been outsourced and lost its competitive edge. CIO leadership is a revolving door.

Advice to Management

Invest in top talent and move to a agile model. Prune upper level management to get more accountability.

    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
