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

Pros

Great standard vacation packages, which increase quickly with tenure. Fantastic set of coworkers (at least, in my office). I made several friends which I still have today, years after I left the company.

Cons

Little to no work/life balance. Dictatorial upper middle-management, with egos the size of Alaska. A little bit low for market value on salaries.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simply realize that you were a proletariat once too...

    I worked at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    Ability to learn many new systems and skills when working on projects. Flexibility in hours is usually not an issue as long as target dates met.

    Cons

    Becoming very rigid and building multiple levels of management (a manager to manage a manager). Employees are taught to look better than their co-workers to succeed, which creates a back-stabbing "I'm out for me" environment.

    I worked at The Hartford full-time

    Pros

    Learned a lot about metrics, analytics, strategy and had great opportunities to grow as a leader

    Cons

    SIgnificant senior leadership change over the time I was there. This lead to a difficult and challenging political environment. Things may be stabilizing post TARP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch out about getting into too much of the "good old boy" system when it comes to selecting leaders....focus on skills and merit for a management development program that develops true skills with actual talent.
