    Pros

    Travelers is well capitalized and is a relatively stable company for which to work. Advancement from entry level positions is common and supported.

    Cons

    Travelers is a very large employer and can at times be bureaucratic. Pay and benefits are less generous than those offered by peer companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What was once a very flat and nimble organization has become encumbered by the growth in matrix management. Despite an expressed focus on innovation and production, it appears that many stakeholdershave surrounded themselves with "yes men" and expend alot of energy on protecting their positions when they should be working on growing the business. Failure to quickly integrate legacy St. Paul business has hurt the expense ratio. Maintaining "home offices" in St. Paul and Hartford does not seem to make economic sense.

    Pros

    Working for Travelers has been a rewarding experience in which I have received a great deal of exposure to critical technologies. My direct management and senior management have good visions for the future and communicate well among their employees.

    Cons

    There are many levels of middle management that are redundant and impediments to advancing the company. They can be closed minded, and rely on people in "the old boys club". These same people also can be easily intimidated by a younger generation. If you are a highly motivated young professional you can quickly hit a glass ceiling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove some layers of middle management that are redundant, especially the managers whom are managing 1-2 people.
