The Hartford is an amazing company that invests on quality and intensive training, provides great benefits, good PTO hours, and flexibility when it comes to work schedule. However, the work environment is too stressful. Management doesn't take their time in easing someone into the job before building up the workload. Once training is over, you are functioning at a full capacity even if you are still under mentorship. Work-Life balance is never achieved, since you will never feel fulfilled with the work you do. People always work more than 40 hours a week due to the crazy amount of workload that needs to be accomplished. Team Leaders are helpful and really supportive, other analysts are encouraging, but there is an immense amount of pressure and negativity in the work culture. There are different layers to the job. At the end of the day, you are just one person and the job is really impossible to manage. It can do some damage if you are unable to find some balance and draw proper boundaries.
