Pros

I've found The Hartford employees to be wonderful co-workers in a relatively laid back atmosphere. Most people remain with company for most of their careers. Benefits and salary are decent, and I've never felt that my job was in jeopardy. Vacation time is sufficient (everything is in a PTO bank, no differentiation between sick time and vacation time) with the option to purchase one more week a year during benefits elections.

If you are relocating, The Hartford offers a great relocation package for more experienced positions.

Cons

Although there is definitely potential for upward movement, sometimes it feels like you are fighting a losing battle with more senior co-workers.

Little to no opportunity for non-sales positions outside of Hartford, CT.

On-site amenties are lacking in my opinion. Childcare would be a great addition.

Advice to Management

Do more team building activities in the workplace and/or during work hours. Incessant happy hours do not fulfill this need for people who don't drink, have long commutes (as many in CT do), or simply want to spend their time off with family.

    Pros

    The Hartford is very supportive of its actuarial students. The rotational program is what you can make of it. The opportunities to grow and understand the industry are certainly there.

    Cons

    Advancement for actuarial students comes from passing exams. It sometimes seems that this emphasis on exams is used as cover to brush off work.

    Advice to Management

    The business aspect and the bigger picture could be better communicated. Lower level workers may have difficulty making sense of how their efforts contribute to the good of the company.
