Once proud and great St Paul

Underwriter (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

ProsErm... It is ok finding a parking space at the office and, erm.... the sandwich company that does the rounds each day sells hot soup!

ConsJoined the company when it was The St Paul in the early 2000s, at which point there was an atmosphere of creativity, encouragement and above all empowerment. Employees efforts and results were rewarded and appreciated. Along comes Travelers and.. oh dear.. Talk about dragging a once proud and great company through the muck. An underwriting unit can make as much money as you like and any excuse will be used not to reward.. Creativity is stifled due to extreme internal bureaucracy (officially termed 'collaboration'), a blame culture is well and truly present with the burgeoning and bloated management structure covering their backs 24/7. Oh, did I mention the insufferable management buzz-words and phrases bandied around the place with soviet style hypocricy such as 'leveraging our talent advantage', 'reaching out to us' and of course 'collaborative approach'. This is even before I have began to start on the recent and disasterous reorganisation. Oh dear.

    Dead end

    Account Manager (Former Employee)

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

    Pros: Probably a good place to start out, but wouldn't advise staying long-term. If you're right out of school or new… Cons: High volume, automation means you don't know what is coming in. Little attention to detail--accounts are valued on volume rather than applying sound underwriting.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
