    Pros

    Company is solid organization with good leadership at the top. Travelers compensates its employees well and offers a full range of benefits. PTO is good.

    Cons

    If not working in Hartford or New York, there do not appear to be many opportunities for growth. Although leadership at the top is good, the solid leadership is not carried down throughout the organization. Decisions seem to be made at top level and employee views are not valued.
