    Pros

    Great benefits; company hires with the intent to promote from within; company is all about individual personal development; company seems to pay better than competitors.

    Cons

    All hourly people are not treated equal; some departments are micro managed, where other departments treat the employee like responsible adults;

    Advice to Management

    Treat all hourly employees equal, don't punish the masses for the few; take the individuals causing the problems aside and address those individual problems separately.

    Pros

    There are too many to list but there is good pay, great opportunities, industry leader. Culture generally can be different from department to department though.

    Cons

    With any company this size there will always be things that one could complain about. I think generally speaking all of my experiences have been positive

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and keep up the good work

    Pros

    Work culture in my department is great and there is potential growth if you know where to look. Salary isn't as competitive but we get good benefits to make up for it.

    Cons

    Project opportunities can be limited which may leave some folks concerned about what they'll be doing next. As mentioned above, salary isn't as competitive

    Advice to Management

    Quite a few managers leave something to be desired while others really allow you to grow organically

    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

    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

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