I worked at The Hartford full-time for 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

    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.

    Pros

    Good pay for a temp position. Staff is very knowledgeable. Training was excellent, has the feel of a university classroom in the best way possible.

    Cons

    Wasn't there long enough to find any.
