    I worked at Travelers Companies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, expect to not work more than 40-50 hours a week. As an intern, they ask you don't exceed 40. IF you look for work, they'll give it to you and you're not doing busy work. I had a good relationship with my manager and team.

    Cons

    Sort of a polarized crowd age wise. People were typically 20-30 or 50+. Very conservative culture.

    Pros

    Benefits and overall culture. I believe it has a good upper mgmnt team.

    Cons

    Slow to move on it initiatives. The folks in the Hartford office seem to like to have their employees local therefore it shuts out job movement opportunities for employees working in other sites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open Up alternative work week. Be open to hire for all positions all over us. Not just Hartford..

    It's a BIG company so change is SLOWWWWWWW.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonuses are fantastic for high performers. Salary increases are not so great. There should be more consideration made for nursing moms in the way of nursing rooms and such. Parking can be a challenge in some locations.
