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.

    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 Management

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

    This is a challenging environment but the rewards can be there if you devote yourself to it.

    Pros

    There are good benefits including generous time off with pay, salary and incentive bonuses. Tuition reimbursement is also sometimes available depending on company discretion. The company has an excellent training facility and focuses efforts on training to produce quality results-driven employees.

    Cons

    This large company is almost strictly numbers driven. You will be expected to achieve certain (challenging) results. This company lacks consideration for individual "soft qualities" and at times can feel a bit cold and hostile, especially during economic hardship when cost savings become a priority. Management works behind closed doors and the workers are rarely included in any master plans. As a salaried employee you may find yourself working significantly longer than average hours in order to reach set goals.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate.
