    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

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

    Pros

    Good opportunity for new college graduates. Ability to learn, develop skills and career progression.
    Numerous opportunities in the Field Office and the Home Office for a variety of disciplines within the Insurance industry.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for seasoned, well educated employees to impact strategy. Lack of career path/ movement at the 10+ years experience level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better utilize the skill sets of employees to implement strategies. A lot of talent is being underutilized or is not well positioned to support managers. Mangers lacking the experience or background would be well served to have more seasoned members to support their teams.
