    Pros

    The Hartford is a customer and employee centric company. The espoused values are lived into daily by senior management down. The importance of each individual employee is recognized through compensation, benefits and a work/life balance that the individual owns.

    Cons

    The Hartford's expectations of employees are high . Individuals that don't thrive in an achievement, results oriented culture can struggle.

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

    Pros

    You can't beat the work/life balance with the paid time off they provide... you get an extra week after 4 years and another week after 10 years of unemployment. I think you start with 3 weeks paid time off and are given the option to purchase a week every year.

    Cons

    The work is stale. If you have a passion for something outside of insurance, go for that! If you want a stable career with good pay, benefits, and flexibility, then maybe Insurance is for you.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at The Hartford full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Some great leaders, but too few to change the overall management problems. Starting to address diversity and inclusion.

    Cons

    Many yearly layoffs, especially targeted to highly tenured employees.. Long continuous work hours (i.e. 60+ per week). Inconsistent management practices. It an old company (200+yrs) and it is insurance...retains the old school school & WASP practices in many pockets of the company. Remote work is marketed, but not consistently provided or "promoted" to high level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate micro-managers to allow for real empowerment and respect. Promote and encourage 100% remote work at all levels & change the treatment of remote workers. Allow and encourage reasonable risk-taking through-out the company if you really want to be innovative and ready for the next "data revolution" (i.e, ML, AI, etc). Respect your tenured employees...it really does take at least 5-7 years to understand... and steward GB-P&C data and thus insights.
