I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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...

Other Employee Reviews for Travelers Companies

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

    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, medical (covered at 90% or greater) , dental, vision, prescription medications pension plan, 4 weeks paid time off per year. Claims system is reliable and adequate to perform the job. The overall culture of the organization is conservative. The dress code is business /casual and most people lean towards business. This place is very corporate so be prepared for the usual politics and games that have to be played in order to improve your standing with the office/company.

    Cons

    This office has some (not all) not so talented supervisors which leaves a lot of talented adjusters, etc without any opportunity for advancement. After working here long enough it is clear that upper management should be aware of the lack of talent in some of their line supervisors, however, I have yet to see them address this issue. Also turnover is relatively high in this office. This should not be the case as the company offers stellar benefits (see pros), It makes no sense to hire so many people and you cannot develop and retain their talent. No bottled water, cups or coffee.

    Advice to Management

    As previously stated by another poster management should consider filling internal opportunities within.
