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

    Pros

    The Hartford is a great place to advance in one's career. I've been able to move to multiple positions. The company cares about employees which is clear through benefits. Additionally, the company invests D&I through initiatives like Employee Resource Groups like YoPros (Young Professionals), Professional Women's Network, Black Insurance Professional Network and many others - these help with forming a network and gaining new skills through professional development.

    Cons

    Tight staffing models means everyone has a lot of work but the environment is one of teamwork.

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Hartford provides amazing training for their employees. I had no insurance background when I came into the company, however, I have been supported through the mentors, my manager and trainers to make me feel comfortable and confident in my role.

    Cons

    When interviewing for the position, I felt I was mislead on what was expected of me. I was told it would be a position where I take payments over the phone. The actual role is lot more involved then what I thought I was getting myself into.
