The HIG has pushed their staff way beyond the breaking point. I am NOT an employee - but a family member of one. They expect 70+ hours of work every week and it is slowly killing my loved one. They are a horrible place to work and I would LEAVE anything that has to do with this company behind. They WILL crash and burn. Guaranteed.

As a current employee I can say this is 100% true. On our team we process paperwork and do phone work. Anything we do is never enough. We're dragged around by management constantly. And now because HIG is doing layoffs we're constantly having to support the phone teams while trying to manage our own workload. Then on top of this if we perform our jobs well all year they re-evaluate our metrics and make it HARDER NEXT YEAR!! There system is there to set us up to fail. Plain and simple. If I could score another job tomorrow I'd be gone from the hartford. Great place to work on paper. The reality is it's a horrific place to work.
Former underwriter - this is 100% true. Low pay, high pressure. Worked until 3 am regularly just to get work done, and I was a seasoned professional. Meeting after meeting, then redo all of the work to meet the management’s whims of what they would “be interested” in seeing... followed by more meetings. Reps have all of the power. No point even saying no to them since the underwriter just gets overridden by Management anyways. Then the underwriter gets penalized for their poor pricing. Awful environment. Any other carrier is better.
As a former employee this is true
As a former Hartford employee this is 100% accurate.
