Big strong company doesn't equate to job security

Pros

Good culture, good people, strong company.

Cons

Only a few bonuses given to small portion of consultants as opposed to each of the top performers receiving incremental amounts. Why the distrust with telecommuting? - just about every insurance company lets their consultants work from home.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't furlough based strictly on seniority, some of the hardest workers and the young energetic ones.

    Pros

    Travelers is a large company (stability) with good benefits, vacation and sick time, 401K etc. During my tenure they offered flexible work schedules and part time work.

    Cons

    They don't seem to value their employees. In particular, it appears that long-term employees with higher salaries are being harassed and forced out for perceived "performance issues". I left in 2005 prior to a "mass exodus" of "poor performers". They also did away with flex and part time hours which is a shame for working mothers.

    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...
