    Pros

    I have worked here for 8 years and love my job. This agency is family run and over time you become part of that family.

    Cons

    Many of our practices are pretty dated for the insurance industry, but we make it work. No benefits.

    None. They're all wonderful.

    I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable employment, good people, and low stress environment make for a good place to have a long career. Pressure to produce is low and it seems that standards are low.

    Cons

    Travelers has the same problems as most big companies. When you are a star, it's hard to get outsize rewards and the company certainly keeps around too much dead weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more constructive feedback. Even if it is critical.

    Pros

    Great company. Great benefits. They're willing to reward hard workers.

    Cons

    Heavy volume, but nothing that isn't manageable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Metrics are less important than customer service. Insureds care more about responsiveness than our own internal metrics.

    Pros

    Lots of different areas to work in whether you're into marketing, finance, underwriting, operations, technology or event planning.

    Cons

    Some areas of the company are a bit clicky, but then again, you're likely to find that anywhere.
