Staff Accountant

I need an advice! I have to potential offers from two different companies, and I would like some advice on which one would be a better long-term path. The first offer is from PwC as a tax associate with a fully paid master degree in management and CPA , but I have to stay with PwC for 18 months. The second offer is at the Hartford insurance group as a junior portfolio analyst in the finance side with a salary ranging from 60-88k starting. What are your thoughts? Which one should I go for?

    Hartford Insurance, leading edge in technology, life balance, and DE&I

    Jan 18, 2023 - Software Engineer in Hartford, CT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The Hartford is a leading edge technology place to work where Life Balance, Ethics, DE&I and even being Green, all are day to day priorities. People that leave usually come back. The Hartford treats their employees better than anywhere else and that makes the difference.

    Cons

    Compensation has been rumored to be less competitive in the past but that no longer seems to be the case. Working from home is often an option and if a position requires being in the office for collaboration for most positions it is only 2 days a week.

    Pros

    The opportunity for growth with The Hartford is only limited by your desires. They are constant opportunities for growth or a change of environment. The Hartford does a great job of celebrating diversity and inclusion.

    Cons

    It is a large company so there is some disconnect between upper tier managers and everyone else.

    High Stress Position, But Pays Well Enough

    Jan 19, 2023 - Claims Service Representative in Orlando, FL

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company itself is great! Great pay, great benefits, great management and co-works. They actually are considerate to their front line employees and empathetic as well

    Cons

    The Home and Auto Insurance industry has really seen ridiculous increases and customers take ALL of their frustrations out on you. In the beginning wasn't so bad, but as time goes on it can really wear you down mentally, which has caused a lot of my colleagues to leave.
