    I worked at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    benefits and 401 OK except health insurance weak

    Cons

    Put pressure to finish assignments with little warning of time of job completion. Management is very disorganized and poor planning in projects. System for testing often doesn't work and difficult to test changes in programs. Very poor training and often training not available. Not up on latest technology and doesn't want to spend any money to upgrade systems.

    Advice to Management

    Very poor management and unethical, Employees don't trust management as often dishonest.

    I worked at The Hartford full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Peers and direct supervisors were great, they cared about each other and the work.

    Cons

    Workload is too high, turnover too high, they hire only what they consider to be TOP QUALITY when in reality most jobs can be done well by most people; if they only trained better. Company prides themselves on diversity D&I; but women and people of color are not well represented in leadership roles. It is very much the good ol boys club. They need to be open to hiring different people, promoting based on skill and potential and not just location and who you know. It very much felt like they only promote in home office.

    Advice to Management

    Replace ALL the leaders in PL Ops and hire people that are reasonable and will work on turnover and make the workplace better. Everyone knows that the leadership is afraid to make the changes required to improve the culture. Even HR is unable to make any improvements or changes. Hire new people with different thoughts and management approaches, your shareholders will thank you!

    Maybe just be a little bit more involved in the onboarding process, such as introducing the new hires to all of the managers and members of the team. Besides that, bravo. This is a great company to work for!

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

    Pros

    Work from home flexibility, 19 days PTO, can buy extra week of PTO. Not many pros - people stay because of the WFH.

    Cons

    Non-exempt and no OT avail, however they keep giving you more workload and make you do DNA badges and get emails from claimants for customer surveys - these claimants are out of work on a disability yet they want great scores and if scores aren't good then TL will call claimants asking them to change. Inexperienced TL that never adjudicated claims but constantly trying to tell you how to do your job and making you refer all claims to MCM/BHCM. MCM doesn't accept your referral because they are behind. They audit 2 files per month and ding you on things that are out of your control and hold you accountable though your TL signed off. Making you assist other Analysts so you're constantly behind.
