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

    Pros

    The company has made a huge investment in our new office in Scottsdale! It is an amazing environment! Foosball, air hockey, ping pong, and an on sight gym are all added bonuses for us. I am a Work Comp adjuster and love my job! The job is challenging and rewarding! It can be stressful at times but our management team and fellow adjusters are always there to support us. If you’re not afraid of a little hard work this is a GREAT career!

    Cons

    As with all insurance, the jobs can be stressful and the caseloads can be high at times but I feel that Hartford’s management team works hard at managing it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up guys! You are doing great!

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

    Pros

    I have worked for The Hartford for almost eighteen years and despite a flurry of constant change characteristic of American business culture, one constant has remained; The Hartford has always endeavored to be a good and honorable employer. The company's nine year recognition as one of The World's Most Ethical Companies not only applies to its behavior and reputation in the marketplace, but also to internal culture as an employer.
    Indeed no employer is perfect, but I have witnessed Hartford leadership at all levels take tangible action on annual employee survey results to address gaps where they occur.
    In addition to reaping the benefits of several career development opportunities throughout my tenure, I have also improved my health and well being through several wellness program offerings.
    Career growth and personal growth, surrounded by an ethical culture. The Hartford delivers on promises to customers and employees alike.

    Cons

    There is no significant "down-side" to being an employee of The Hartford.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and forward momentum. You have a 207 year-old legacy to protect and pay forward.
