    I worked at The Hartford full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Flexible working. Ability to contribute to change in the team. Good bonuses and pay rises.

    Cons

    Seemed to be a lot of promoting to senior management of internal staff that were there the longest and were "yes" men rather than the most qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing. Look at hiring for senior roles outside of the organisation rather than just hire those that are willing to agree with the loudest voice

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Allows Remote work and the tools necessary to stay engaged with co-workers
    Customer Focused company
    Continuous improvement with systems, processes
    The Hartford Way - keeping in touch and allowing employees at any level to provide candid feedback and suggestions for improvement (not top heavy direction)
    Freedom to express yourself and get creative in your day to day work!

    Cons

    Some technology challenges (but they are working on those) however no different from any other company I've worked for.
    I'm not giving work/life balance a 5 star, but only because my particular position is very demanding

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

    Pros

    Diversity and inclusion is the thing that stands out the most to me. I have heard more than one person state they are free to be themselves. I love the spirit of transparency! This is important as we work everyday to restore the lives of people of all experiences and backgrounds. How can we be true to them if we are not true to ourselves?

    Cons

    The insurance industry is constantly changing. It is important to remain versatile and be ready to adapt. This is not necessarily a con if you like change.

    Advice to Management

    More remote opportunities would be great. There are some available but not enough.

    Pros

    Kudos to HR for doing an amazing job at hiring a great group of people. I look forward to going to work everyday. The atmosphere, the culture, the perks, management, coaches, peers... simply amazing. The company is very customer centric. Integrity and transparency are its core values. If you're looking to work for a reputable company that cares about it's customer base and employees, look no farther. This is the place to be.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to share.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, because it's working. Thank you creating an amazing place to work.

    The Hartford is a great place to work with a strong focus on support, training, and mentoring across the board.

Management is fairly responsive and relatable for a company of its size.

    Cons

    Not for those needing to be on the cutting edge of new technologies/processes.
