    The management team regularly solicits and encourages feedback and suggestions. There is a focus on innovation and correcting inefficiencies. I feel that I'm heard and have a voice.

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, and benefits appear to be slightly above average for the area. Offer tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Poor management and development opportunities once you are out of a leadership development program. While touted to be best in employment survey, this is primarily based on a large influx in early career development folks who have little to no experience in comparable companies.

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

    Pros

    The people. A lot of knowledgeable and experienced teams. Flexibility to work from home. Fairly casual atmosphere in the field.

    Cons

    Far too political and so many decisions are based purely on who it will benefit/screw over.

    Medical is lacking in choice and very expensive. No low deductible option for new hires. The HSA could be better and the premiums are ridiculous. PTO is poor and public holidays are on the low side.

    Too many managers acting like gods. The perception that Hartford is all about diversity and inclusion is just a mask. Get inside down to the work horse end and it's rife with discrimination. The sexism was unbelievable. And the bonus culture means employees are pitted against each other. There's a massive problem with trust.

    Very difficult to achieve anything in the field. If you're based in Hartford you don't exist.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the constant reorganizations and act on the discrimination. Right now it's a joke.
