Pros

The company wants its employees to do the right thing. Good opportunities for professional development. Commitment to diversity.

Cons

Difficult to advance because of politics.

Advice to Management

Walk the walk. If you want to keep women and minorities, give them the opportunities to advance. Don't just talk about it.

    Pros

    Travelers is a very conservative and financially stable company. The pay scale is competitive with other carriers.

    Cons

    Much of the upper and middle management of this company makes so many decisions based on their perceptions of someone. And most of the time their perception is very far from the truth. For example, I had an employee on final warning for job performance and when they decided to open another office, they promoted him to a manager. I have seen this type of behavior over and over. And reverse descrimination is another problem. They will tell you to hire someone because of their nationality or gender, even if you have 3 or 4 other candidates that are better qualified and have more potential. People are selected for leadership programs in this same manner.

    Advice to Management

    Survey your employees on what is really happening at the field office level and do so without fear of retaliation for expressing their concerns. There are so many inefficiencies in the field that are driven by field and regional management most of which have no idea of what it takes to do the job in the trenches. Do a better job of getting the right people in the seats to do the work. Take a more proactive stance at getting rid of the poor performers. It should not take 2 years to terminate someone that has not been doing their job for the past 5 years just because they are a long-term employee and/or a minority.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits stellar. Overall great culture for a large corporation. Management is very excessible and co-workers are helpful and friendly. Top executive at field office is very friendly and knows everyones name over 300 employees in the office.

    Cons

    Expectations for raises and bonuses very hard to meet. Health benefits are a little costly. Could have a better break room cafeteria area.
