    Pros

    Excellent training and support as a new hire to set you up for success.The coworkers are friendly and suuportive and leadership seems genuinely dedicated to customers and their people. Most Managers have worked as Reps so they understand and can be very supportive. Great place to build your career with tuition reimbursement and promotions to different roles and management possible after a couple if years. Benefits are good, salary is OK but you can earn awards and incentives. Work from home option can be available after a year or two also.

    Cons

    Work can be challenging with lots of metrics about your performance. This is not a good place for just a job, more like a career place to come, learn and get advancement. Leaders serious about performance and will help you get ahead and be successful. Been there 3 yes and can say you will get out of it what you put in. Work hard and you can get good career advancement,help with tuition and hours that work for you. Lots of overtime available which can be a good thing if you like $.

    Advice to Management

    Computer systems are s bit dated. Would like to see more remote work opptys. Overall great company, great people to work with and for.

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

    Pros

    Culture, team players, leaders who listened. People are their to help. Everyone seems to be a team player and have a strong spirit. I was able to make tons of connections from all the employee resource groups, lunch and learns, and community of practice events.

    Cons

    Typical slow turn around on things in corporate. Getting things done can take so much by in when really you should just be able to run with it. Lots of people are worked way over capacity and "multi task" and try to do so many things at once. Really, they are task switching and it isn't effective.

    Advice to Management

    Some things are to formalized and get in the way of immediate action.
