Great in the beginning but it is a shrinking company.

IT Professional (Former Employee) Hartford, CT (US)

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

ConsThis 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 Senior ManagementBe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
