    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Positive people and lot of room to progress with your career. Good benefits and decent pay depending on your position

    Cons

    There really aren't many cons some positions seem to get micromanage a bit but that's about it. There is also a cafeteria so you will gain some weight

    Pros

    Lots of ee benefits available to choose from. Parking was convenient. Cafeteria right on site. Gym onsite. Doctor's office onsite. Ability to meet lots of different people in many different positions.

    Cons

    The company seemed to be cutting back on paying for things in many ways. Most years, they'd pay less of your medical premium, while you paid more. Employees with more than 25 years service lost a weeks vacation. Had to pay for parking.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to shareholders less, your employees more. Many have great thoughts and comments, which I'm sure come out in the surveys you do. You talk a good game about culture change, but don't really mean it.

    Pros

    Many options to further your career, great opportunities for advancement, very forward thinking for an insurance company. Leading the way in healthcare reform.

    Cons

    Too centralized (Hartford or nothing) when it comes to most opportunities. In today's world, virtual workplace should be the norm, not the exception.
