I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time

Pros

A lot of vacation and ability to buy additional time off.

Cons

Management is insensitive to employees. Work load is over the top. There are little promotional opportunities. Changes constantly being made by persons unfamiliar with the work. Little empathy if you were to become ill.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Embrace your older employees instead of overworking them to pick up the slack for the younger ones. Do not attempt to force them out. Instead, reward them both monetarily and by alleviating work load instead of constantly adding.

    Pros

    Great Benefits / Salary is at upper end for most all adjusting jobs. Probably 1 of 2 best paying companies for adjusters. However, no raises or bonus (even after several years of employment) unless you are top performer.

    Cons

    Upper MGMT has no respect for employees and has look down their nose attitude. / No raises, bonus, or compensation of any kind at year end unless you are a top performer (5 people out of a group of 50) / no appreciation for long hours / heavy burden placed on a few adjusters in a department and there is no compensation, respect, or additional pay for those that this falls on.

    There is some room to move around but mgmt usually knows who they will put in the spot when it's posted. This is a company where brown nosing goes a long way!

    Work environment is almost prison like. It is frowned upon to talk with your coworkers or be away from your cube for more than a minute at a time.

    The list goes on- this is a great place if you desire to come in, sit in a cube, run as hard as you can everyday, and go home.

    Very much don't ask for anything or complain / Their attitude is you have a job and we can replace you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about weeding out some of the unit managers that obviously have no people skills or skills in developing their employees. Culture needs to change- I would start with upper mgmt.

    Pros

    Pay, fun opportunities for employee engagement

    Cons

    Working at this office is like being in high school all over again. People gossip about each other and management is just as bad. Each week management has a new metric to focus on and will breathe down your neck if your "numbers" aren't where they should be. This leads employees to focus more on meeting metric goals and ignoring other important parts of the job.
