I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

good solid company with conservative approach to investments. This results in a slow and steady approach.

Cons

Slow on the uptake of new ideas and opportunities, a little behind the time when it comes to appreciation for the latest technology, latest process controls, etc. Introduction of new ideas and concepts not entertained unless sponsored at a senior level. This is probably not uncommon for large companies, but certainly will not make this an environment able to compete for top talent willing to relocate to smaller companies looking for creative thinkers. This also results in a risk averse environment.

Advice to Management

External hires into leadership positions as well as clear identification of a "select few" for the internal movement makes it difficult for others to understand their career opportunities.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fortune 200 company. Nice people who are loyal to the company

    Cons

    No work life balance. Travelers is a good company to work for but yet you get caught up in working hard for a possible bonus only to find out you aren't getting one! You could sit in the same position for years and thats a okay with management.

    Advice to Management

    Employees matter! Work harder to make everyone feel like you appreciate what they contribute and it doesn't have to always be in the form of money but even a simple kudos you are doing great. Keep yp the good work. That goes a long way.
