    Big strong company doesn't equate to job security

    Risk Control (Former Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsGood culture, good people, strong company.

    ConsOnly a few bonuses given to small portion of consultants as opposed to each of the top performers receiving incremental amounts. Why the distrust with telecommuting? - just about every insurance company lets their consultants work from home.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't furlough based strictly on seniority, some of the hardest workers and the young energetic ones.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company but running scared in PL & doing some stupid things with agents

    Personal Insurance Sales Exec (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsIncreasing investment in drect is probably the right choice but upsetting their agency plant

    ConsHR runs PL these days & the company currently takes stack ranking to the nth degree - very negative place to work in the past 2 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDial back the HR role

    Former employee with an objective opinion.

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsTravelers offers competitive pay and job security. Travelers is also a great place to work because of the people. It was rare, if it happened at all, that people lost their jobs at Travelers. Job security allows people to focus on their task rather than worry if they will be given a box and a pink slip.

    ConsOne downside is that Travelers will probably never be the forerunner of the insurance industry. Management heavy like most large companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to have some cutbacks in your area.

    Travelers Gives You No Reason to Travel Elsewhere

    Risk Control Consultant (Current Employee) Alpharetta, GA

    ProsCompensation for job well done. Not every one of my peers automatically receives a bonus - those just doing their job, doing the minimum do not necessarily receive a bonus like other insurance companies that I have worked for. This is also a very strong company financially. I rarely hear anyone complain about the compnay, Morale is very high, great people to work with!

    ConsOpportunities for growth, though that does not matter to me that much. I am not interested in a promotion as much as good compensation for a job well done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo remember that top performers need to be duly compensated so they never feel reason to look around for another job,

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
