    Pros

    Reward you when you work hard, gets a lot of praise from upper management, salary is good, good balance between work and life

    Cons

    High politics. If you cannot swim with the sharks, life will be very challenging. You will most definitely need not to be ashamed or scared to toot your own horn from time to time. However, mgmt will notice you if you stand out, and you will be recognized. However, that same recognition will allow you to be a threat to others. You will have to be ready for jealousy and straight out office politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to the folks that work for you, for they are the ones who keeps the wheels turning. Don't reward ones who can keep the politic wheel spinning, but ones who work hard and are dedicated as well.

    Challenging and interesting, but extremely political, unfair evaluations of personnel by top Risk Control Management

    I worked at Travelers Companies

    Pros

    Excellent reputation in the industry, highly qualified technical personnel and support, mostly high quality employees, and largely good management. Good, stable direction in an industry known for flavor of the month trends.

    Cons

    Rather impersonal. Some disturbing trends in the management direction of Risk Control, after many years of excellent leadership that was quite competent, very realistic, down-to-earth, with great sense of humor and personable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as you would want to be treated.
