Pros

Decent starting pay and benefits

Cons

Very limited advancement potential and raises are almost non-existent. Also the file review process is a nightmare, no margin for any error.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect the hard work of your employees.

    Account Managers and Account Executives considering employment in the Houston office should really reconsider.

    Pros

    Great benefits! (401K, Health, Dental, Pension, Paid Time Off); I as impressed to see how generous the company is at investing in charitable organizations such as United Way, Habitat for Humanity, and Jr. Achievement to name a few. Employee participation is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    Many of the positive company reviews for Travelers are from employees located in Headquarters - Hartford, Ct. However, the Houston office is nothing to be desired. At many levels, management has turned a blind eye to the high work load and poor morale that hovers over this department. As a result, turnover is excessive!!

    Seventeen employees have left the company (from this department alone) since January 2013. When employees leave, their work load is distributed (unevenly) to the remaining employees, most of whom have been with the company less than a year. Training sucks! If you ask 3 different people the same question you will get 3 completely different answers.

    I won't bother getting into the office politics but just know that it is a bit extreme in the Houston office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to recognize that until changes are made to get competent leaders in the Houston office, the turnover will continue and the business will suffer. Fostering healthy relationships is important but the desire to be friends should not supersede the needs of the business. Get to the core of why you can't keep people in this department, then make adjustments!

    Great summer internship experience.

    Pros

    The IT Summer program is great, you really feel like part of a team and are exposed to good work. There are many opportunities for networking with other interns and full time employees. The pay is good and the employees are helpful and welcoming.

    Cons

    Sometimes there were periods of no work and there wasn't any formal training so you're thrown in there and have to be ready to learn on the fly. There wasn't any sense of connection after it was over.
