Current Employee - Project Manager in Saint Paul, MN

I have been working at Travelers Companies

Pros

Good collaboration within teams and generally people are willing to work together for a common goal - most are committed to the company

Cons

All the hiring and opportunities seem to be in Hartford - St Paul location is withering and will die off in the not too distant future

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of management is nearly clueless as to what their teams are doing and they really don't seem to understand the concept of leadership

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits and competent co-workers

    Cons

    you feel like you work in a "bubble". expectations are hard to meet no matter how good you are. Your job does not end at 5 pr 6 pm, you will always have stuff do you when you come into work the next day. Some management is very incompetent and make decisions that just don't seem rational.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more in touch with what the staff is doing. Lots of "closed door" policies for managers and this is going to hurt the company overall. Also, claims management makes some crazy decisions on who they hire and fire. Several offices are run by complete misfits.

    Pros

    Low Stress Environment
    Great work life balance
    Great Benefits
    Excellent Leadership Development Programs available for students currently in college or just graduating

    Cons

    Salary not too great
    Being a big company things are very slow paced
    Lots of bureaucracy and red tape that makes it difficult to be productive
    Frequently working with incompetent people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire smarter/more hardworking employees and pay them more rather than hiring whoever you can find.
    Focus on how you can make a big company appear smaller.
