    It's great experience working in the Hartford. Managers and colleagues are very nice. No pressure of working over time.

    I don't see any cons working in the Hartford. Comparing to downtown Hartford, the parking is free though we need to take shuttle bus to the building. You have to add another 10 minutes in the commute.
