    I wish I would have found this company earlier in my career!

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, high integrity, opportunity for remote work, strong senior leadership. The Hartford truly cares about it's employees, and is also customer-centric. Great company and I'm proud to work for The Hartford!

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive and wellness program is not great.

    Advice to Management

    The organization should be more transparent when it comes to compensation. For example, salary ranges are kept from managers and never shared with employees. If you're doing the right thing by your employees, why hide this?

    Pros

    I consider this company a hidden gem, that I am glad I discovered. Starting with the culture. Who you are matters at The Hartford. Not only are you encouraged to voice your opinions and goals, management does something about it. You have full support of your manager. Big family culture. If you Work hard, produce results, and have a good attitude you will see results in your personal growth.

    Cons

    I can't think of any major con's. I wish we could travel more to form relationships with agents but cost wise I understand why we cant.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the support and listening to what we have to say!

    I have been working at The Hartford part-time

    Pros

    I love working for The Hartford. I am going on 11 years in September at this amazing company. The people are fantastic, the work is rewarding, and you cannot beat the benefits and work/life balance. I was able to return to work part-time after having my son. I was so worried I would have to quit but my decision to cut back and focus on family was supported 100%. So blessed to work with such amazing people.

    Cons

    Over the last 10 years holding different roles in the company the one constant I have seen is that The Hartford holds on to low performers longer than they should. If the job isn't the right fit it's best to help them on the way to their next journey rather than holding on to them for 6 months or more. It's not fair to the individual or to the team working with them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fantastic coaching and support. Perhaps performance manage a bit more aggressively.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Not so great on training ... it's more of a sink or swim environment once you start.
