    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.

    Pros

    Leadership is supportive, training is excellent and simply the best people in the industry. You will be challenged to give more than 100%, but will be rewarded accordingly. If you are a coaster or union type person, this is not the culture for you. Pay for performance measures are fair.

    Cons

    Health benefits are decreasing which is typical for all large corporations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None

    Pros

    There are many good and smart people. Focus is on getting better all the time. Lots of opportunities to learn and to contribute. Management emphasis is properly on responsible profit.

    Cons

    Tight deadlines are used to motivate people. Management can try to do too much at once. Different parts of the business may not always work together.
