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

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

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.

    I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, communicate, communicate.

    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time for more than a year

    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.
