Pros

very stable company that is well positioned in the industry

Cons

under pay... make sure you are very happy with your comp before you get in because they typically pay on 90% to market

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there is some dead weight in the organization and management doesn't have the backbone to address it. As well, there is so much red tape in the org, it's a wonder anything gets done at all... smaller companies can move so much faster and once they understand the business model, look out...

  1. Very, very corporate cultural where there are a lot of managers who love to look important but have no clue.

    Pros

    Above average industry benefits, stable company.

    Cons

    Very corporate culture with several inexperienced mangers with no common sense and no people skills. If you think having an interview with 3 managers that takes 2 hrs for an auto appraiser position is ridiculous, then look elsewhere. You will be glad that you did not get hired in this company. Corporate Confusion to the max.!!! They have never heard of keep it simple stupid. Very, very inefficient company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your ivory towers and start making changes ! Oh , yeah, that's right they did not teach you common sense in MBA school. They just taught you the six sigma approach to nowhere fast!! Keep on counting your beans and wigits, keep on micro managing and see where that gets your company. Just a workforce afraid to have an opinion, no morale, no enthusiasm, just going thru the motions...til the A players find greener pastures.

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
