    Pros

    Great hours. The training program helps you understand their product lines. The insurance products are an easy sell. Travelers has a great marketing department.

    Cons

    Management needs to work on hiring the right people. Experience would be helpful. Most of all people with a great attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Changes need to be made

    Great training program, really prepares you for success. Good amount of PTO. Opportunity to advance to higher positions or move to different departments.

    Cons

    Not to many cons but the base pay could be higher. But considering the location and opportunity to advance not too many complaints.

    No advice to management most of the people in management positions during my tenure have moved on too other positions.

    Pros

    You have a lot of great exposure to many different departments as well as many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Cubicle style working conditions can be pretty cramped at times. If you come in early or stay late the lights will be very dim because they're on automatic timers.

    Advice to Management

    Due to the competitive nature of having several dozen Market Analysts working next to each other, make sure you are very blunt on your feedback. If you tell them they are doing a great job when they're not, the word will spread quickly and ultimately hold that person back.

    Pros

    Great company and friendly colleagues. Management structure was easy to understand and clear who I was to report to. Relaxed yet professional, and easy to communicate questions or results of work to senior level managers. Enjoyed working there.

    Cons

    The only thing that was somewhat difficult was assembling my work experience for the past 10 years, including financial information, for the job background check and application. But it is understandable that they'd want that information so I don't believe this is really a "con".

    Pros

    great benefits, great pay in comparison to the industry. Great internal movement and opportunity for advancement. Opportunity for overtime. Paid holidays and sick leave.

    Cons

    lengthy interview process. I don't really have any cons, company believes in investing in the people they have hired instead of looking for ways to fire them.

    Advice to Management

    don't really have any advice to management. Training is up to par and help always there if needed.
