    Pros

    Lots of opportunities since Travelers is a multi-line insurer. Excellent work/study program. Great ability to network given the large amount of actuaries employed. Actuarial community is extremely tight knit. Pay is good for the area.

    Cons

    Exam raises are not on par with other major carriers. Lots of older actuaries and extensive reporting layers in the Business Insurance areas. Hartford isn't a desirable city.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management is doing an excellent job. Actuarial management could re-evaluate exam raise program.

    Pros

    The working environment is truly friendly and everyone is willing to help. The insurance industry is a stable industry; simultaneously there is always a demand for insurance. There is amble room for growth, given the age gap among employees.

    Cons

    Insurance isn't always as exciting.

    Pros

    Total compensation package was very good. Most of my project peers were great people to work with.

    Cons

    Training and support were non existent. Project management process did not drive the delivery dates. Upper management picked the dates and burnt out the project team. Off shore third party vendors were taken advantage of and used as slave labor.

    Advice to Management

    Let your project teams and project process drive your deliverables and dates.
