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

Pros

Benefits are good (paid time off, 401k match, pension).
Work-life balance is great (remote and flexible work options).
Communication is okay.

Cons

The company is poor at execution, so change is very slow.
The management is not adequately developped, so poor management is rampant across the company. Also, it is top-heavy.
The company does a bad job aligning the top levels goals to the lower level employees priorities.

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work environment - great people, great benefits, rewards and recognition, opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Very busy in call center - could benefit from more time for daily team huddles for front line employees and time in between calls in mornings and daytime hours for both employee and customer experience. Technology - outdated and buggy internal computer programs and systems in call centers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to increase promotion from within the front-line call center operations up to management and executive management level roles. Front line leaders potentially have a thorough, comprehensive understanding of our business, our customers, our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats gained from daily interaction with the marketplace. They have that close view perspective and understand what it takes for operational efficiency to happen, as well as growth and customer satisfaction. With education, front line leaders can take on higher level, broader leadership roles in upper levels of the organization using their pperspective and experience sharing data across the organization. Their promotion will inspire front line employees who will reflect their inspiration in their daily interactions with our customers as the see many others advance before them. This potentially can make The Hartford one of the top celebrated companies to work for, with innovative insights shared at high levels om the organization, and faster, more clear decision making based on understanding of our customers, businesses, and what it takes to be efficient and deliber excellent financial performance.
