My area has a fast paced and challenging work environment. My manager is excellent at encouraging work-life balance and avoiding burn out or over-allocation of work assignments. There are times when working over 40 hours may be necessary, but those times are infrequent. There are many opportunities within The Hartford, and employees are encouraged to develop their skills both to support their current role and position themselves to move into other roles or other areas of the company. Recent changes have made the dress code more casual, with a "dress for your day" focus that allows more jeans and other casual wear in the office (within reason, i.e. no shorts and tanks/t-shirts). The Hartford has a strong focus on work/life balance. The new benefits for 2020 have increased benefits around family life including enhanced fertility coverage, adoption benefits, increased parental leave. They are also concerned about the impact of student loan debt on an employee's life so the company is introducing a benefit to help defray some of an employee's student loan debt. I am too old to make use of these benefits, but this is a good step to becoming a more attractive employer to the younger employee pool. The employees I work with have a wide variety of backgrounds and The Hartford is a diverse and inclusive employer in all areas. I have worked for The Hartford for nearly 30 years, and there have been times when I would not have strongly recommended the company as an employer of choice. That has changed, and I am happier working for The Hartford now than I have ever been. I would - more...
Great place to work with a lots of opportunities to learn new things and stay engaged. Where behavior such as courage leadership and innovation are encouraged. Management team promotes growth, development and work/life balance.
I worked there for almost a year and I was always encouraged by my manager and coworkers to think about what I truly want to do in life and that could include anything. So I finally figured out I wanted to go back to school, but I wanted to stay at the company at the same time if I could. I asked for part time because one of my teammates was part time because it worked for her family. However the told me it was not possible and then 2 weeks later fired me for work avoidance. I was at the top of my team for stats and did not understand why they did what they did, but oh well. My manager then had a meeting with my best friend from work the next day and told her, "well Madisyn was going to leave us anyway." SO personally they do not care for their employees like they say.
My current company is a diverse and ethical place to work.
The best part of the job is working with my fellow teammates to resolve end user issues. Most days start with working thru tickets via our ticketing sytems, connecting with end users and completing system builds via our SCCM Management console. My current company is open to remote work as well as departmental transfer to help better and help your growth within the company.
This is not a great place to work. Goals are unreasonable and workload tasks are unreasonable. Management lacks vision and direction which makes it difficult to focus. They take a scatter gun approach.
Company is every changing and employees have to consistently be open to change. Management can be transparent depending on what are you work in. Always be ready to develop and grow yourself into other areas of the compnay.

This is not a place for performers, if you want to keep your head down and coast this is a great place, there are no goals and your performance will not be measured. If you are looking for a challenge you are better off going elsewhere as you will not be given the tools needed to succeed.
The Hartford claims they pay for performance. What this really means is only the Rated people get good bonuses and there’s a lot of favoritism. The Hartford bell curves and managers are required to rate people poorly even if they are good performers. Upper level management asked us do you speak up but when we do we are rated badly People are fearful at the Hartford culture is not going
Nice to work from home but NCM workload high, requires more than a 40 HR work week to complete. Customer satisfaction always trumps employee satisfaction. The company goal is to get the best customer survey reviews, not to keep employees feeling like they are valued. Some nurse's have half as many files as others but if questioned, this is due to company needs, not about how the company can make the workload more fair. All calls are recorded, e-mails and Skype conversations can be read by managers. If you want to be micromanaged then you won't mind this environment.
It's a good company that promotes work/life balance while not actually providing work/life balance. I had to deal with some health issues & contacted their Hartleave program, I was given the wrong information & paperwork. Managers gossip about their employees to employees.
A lot of inconsistency as far as policies go. Managers need to get educated on the system more.when it came down to needing a manager on the phone , no one wanted to take the call and didn’t care then if customer was on hold long .
I love coming to work mainly because of the people, culture and the opportunity to learn new skills. It’s a very friendly work environment. The people are very helpful if you need information or support in a particular area.
Upper Management listen to employee’s views and suggestions if appropriate. They provide employees with the tools, training and great work/life balance to succeed on the job.
Great benefits, remote work and excellent training opportunity
