Pros

Travelers offers competitive pay and job security. Travelers is also a great place to work because of the people. It was rare, if it happened at all, that people lost their jobs at Travelers. Job security allows people to focus on their task rather than worry if they will be given a box and a pink slip.

Cons

One downside is that Travelers will probably never be the forerunner of the insurance industry. Management heavy like most large companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to have some cutbacks in your area.

    Little opportunity to move within the company to different areas...

    Travelers is an insurance giant that may not reach its full potential.

    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.
