    I worked at Travelers Companies as an intern

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Travelers was that they really emphasized work-life balance. I think it kept the energy level high and work product efficient. Everyone had an open doors policy and helped each other out. I really enjoyed going to work and interacting with the staff.

    Cons

    Since this is such a huge company, it's difficult to feel connected with the HR since they could not be directly reached except through the supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to incorporate more time between the supervisors and interns not just to receive feedback and self-improvement, but also to create company bonding.

    Pros

    Great culture. Everybody is extremely helpful, and they do their best to make you feel comfortable. The work that is given to you is meaningful. The internship program in itself is great, as it provides you with mentoring as well as a many workshops, team building activities and networking opportunities with other interns. The paid housing is also a great benefit.

    Cons

    Hartford is a mediocre city. Also, Travelers can be too conservative at times. As with any other big company, the sheer size of the organization can be overwhelming and can get in the way of getting things done.
