I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Travelers is a very solid company, with great a history and a great stock. There are many opportunities to move around within the company, and it is encouraged in many areas. The health of the company is great and they are spending money in areas that are important. IT spending in particular is a focus and great for those in IT.

Cons

At mid-senior level IT engineering/management, Travelers is fair with salary, but has trouble matching some of the more aggressive salaries in the US.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revisit the market ratios for IT professionals.

    I worked at Travelers Companies as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Seems to be a great employer. People are very happy with their hours and opportunities. Seem to be plenty of opportunity and programs for those hungry to advance. Lots of development programs for candidates. I had a pleasant experience and other interns did as well.

    Cons

    Like all large companies is definitely some fat that could be trimmed. There are some employees whose jobs could have been outsourced or automated years ago. Typical corporation bureaucracies do exist.

    Pros

    Great employee benefits in terms of PTO purchasing and medical.

    Cons

    Senior Management does not manage the managers and look to trend and turn over. There is little work from home flexibility which makes them less competetive in the local market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some employee engagement surveys and have the employees guide some of the changes. Provide more flexible work from home policies.
