Pros

Travelers is a great company. Decent paid and benefit. If you can prove yourself as a top performer to your manager, you can receive a nice deent bonus with merit increase. The training is also great and I have learned a lot from this company.

Cons

At Travelers, the employees are divided to be insiders / oustiders. If you are in the insiders group, you are on the favorite list by managers which means you can move around within the cmpany regardless how your perform on the job. If you are in the outsiders group, it would be difficult to advance your career and move to other department. Career advancement is non-existent. Hiring managers are playing coporate politics which pays a huge part in disrupting employees' opportunity to advance career. Some hiring managers are not even remotely qualify for the their jobs as they never handled the type of business they are leading the group. They are hired because they knew someone at the Senior management level. Hiring decision is based on who you know instead of what you know.

Advice to Management

Figure out a way to retain top talent and reshape the hiring practice. Promote employees within the company base on their true performance and talent. If the company does not get their act toghether, it will continue to lose top talents to its competition.

    Pros

    Many people willing to help and guide early on. Many social activities after work. Very nice area in St. Paul

    Cons

    There is a lot of heads down work during the day where many people are plugged in not really working together so it depends on your work style if you like that independent work or not.

    Advice to Management

    Facilitate team oriented work

    Pros

    Financial stability. The company had been a very good company to work for a number of years ago.

    Cons

    The company treats aging workforce poorly and is driving people out (no doubt with HR approval) at a rapid rate by making unrealistic expectations, "action plans", and micro-managing techniques. Loss Control upper management is incompetent, and getting worse in recent years. The harder you worked, the less appreciated you were. The company provides no work-life balance, no company outings, celebrations, etc....are non-existent. Stay away from this company unless you are desperate for a job!

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly!
