I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Fortune 500, great benefits (excluding pay - see cons); the company has a number of hard-working and talented employees from whom I have learned a lot.

Cons

I suspect that pay is somewhat below market. It is a common belief that top executives really want to close the St. Paul offices and sell the buildings. Some people believe that a few years ago the company made a quiet effort to put the buildings on the market but found that there were no good offers.

Advice to Management

If things stay the same then we will keep slowly losing IT resources in Minnesota as the IT job market continues to improve. It is discouraging to hear reports of strong profits while being told that there is little to no money available for salary for IT - and IT is a critical component of the company's continuing success.

    Travelers has no regard for loyal baby boomers & chooses to retain novices over employees with seniority.

    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. It is a good place for young college graduates who are entering the work force.

    Cons

    Most employees who have worked for Travelers for a long time are let go before being able to retire. Hardly anyone retires at Travelers, and those who have are not long-term employees. There is too much unwarranted micromanagement and negativity. The stress caused is unhealthy for most employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get get rid of the salary and ranking scale. Ranking does not encourage teamwork. ALL employees want to feel appreciated and respected. Please keep in mind employees are people & not numbers; they are also consumers. Only concentrating on the numbers encourages dishonesty.
