I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great financial company, underwriting discipline, subject matter expert resources.

Cons

This is the way we've always done it mentality. Paper files, PAPER FILES still. Almost no focus on process improvement. Very cheap on employee perks (outside of your standard benefits) i.e. break room has a sink and fridge only.

    Pros

    Low risk, low chance of layoffs. Comfortable work environment and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities, high turnover of motivated young employees recruited out of college once they build a decent resume. You need to get creative and network in order to advance... take ownership of your career and decide where you want to end up (are you OK topping out at Sr. Account Executive, Sr. Claims Adjuster, etc., or do you want to aim higher?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the retention of UPDPs and other young professionals at the 3-5 year mark... some of the best talent leaves the company.

    Pros

    Travelers seems to be a stable company with a split headquarters in Hartford. Travelers provides competitive benefits. There are many employees who have been there a long time, and still have good values and work attitudes.

    Cons

    Employees are over worked and are having a tendency towards finger pointing in order to save their 'reputation', as there is alot of back stabbing going on. Attitudes are getting very negative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more skip level meetings to learn about middle and lower management.
