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

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...

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
  2.  

    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.
