Pros

Excellent movement for growth. Friendly management and employees. Rewarding work. Definitely a place where you feel that you can stay for a career.

Cons

Can get really busy during end of fiscal year. Renewal policies for insured can get stressful. Brokers also tend to get on your back.

    Pros

    Travelers is the most family friendly organization I have ever worked for. I loved that there were many women and young professionals. I really enjoyed the work and would definitely recommend applying while in law school!

    Cons

    Some of the offices are practice area specific and this could lead to you being pigeon holed into one practice area.

    I worked at Travelers Companies

    Pros

    Great benefits, challenging duties, great coworkers.

    Cons

    Can be a political place...not merit based. They make you jump through hoops for any recognition. Management tries to hold best employees back. They try to make you do more and more with no end in sight...Everyone from claims to staff counsel is overwhelmed and the pressure continues to mount on the employees back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You mae wise decisions during the initial crash of the market..no loosen the belts slightly and hire more people. If not more will leave to other companies. Not everyone believes that there are no jobs out there.
