    I worked at The Hartford full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Hartford is a great company to work for. Their benefits are truly some of the best I’ve ever seen. They do a great job in training and preparing their employees for their front-line roles. Management is generally great across the call center, of course there are always some outliers.

    Cons

    It’s a very thankless job. You’re working in a stressful environment, held to high expectations for sales KPI’s with little to no reward or incentive to maintain your numbers.

    Horrible work/life balance, constant change, poor senior leadership. Benefits continually change, in a bad way.

    Hire smart people, set expectations and get out of their way. Too many reports, multiple systems, referrals etc. Feels like you don't trust your employees.
