Great in the beginning but it is a shrinking company.

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

Pros

Good compensation. Work from home available in many areas. Great co-workers.

Cons

This is a shrinking company which has and continues to let go hundreds of people in the past several years to offshore companies or by virtue of divestiture. The threat of being laid off is constant and affects employees morale.
There are little to no advancement opportunities, especially for women. Gender bias was a frequent observation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be careful to monitor the quality of service being delivered to the customer in the midst of transformation.
When a company is shrinking at the rate HIG is this may be difficult but make attempts, even if small, to provide opportunities for advancement.

    Used to be good but since 2008, morale and employee-treatment parallels their stock price

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and generally good to work with. Work-from-home capabilities is nice.

    Cons

    Computer tracking, even for salaried employees. Outsourcing. Poor management decisions. "Manager musical chairs." The executive leadership members are entirely different than 3 years ago, as everyone has left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees and shareholders happy otherwise you will continue on your demise.
