    Current Employee - 2vp in Hartford, CT

    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.
