    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Thorough and succinct training program; mentors can be great; pay is decent, though lower than similar positions in the industry as The Hartford does not require reps to have a Series 6.

    Cons

    No Series 6 leaves reps with a lack of basic financial industry understanding; management is crazy about micromanaging time; new hires basically have a babysitter watching their every move; manager for new hires is remote; short breaks don't allow enough time to decompress.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like children. Stop basically requiring overtime.

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Hartford is an honest company and promotes this throughout their workforce.

    Cons

    Slow to provide employees with current evaluation of their work.

    Advice to Management

    Reviews or audits of your work should be provided to the employee upon Management's receipt, not 2, 3, 4 months later.
