    Pros

    Culture - very supportive. People work HARD at Travelers but value family and have fun.

    Cons

    It's a BIG company so change is SLOWWWWWWW.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bonuses are fantastic for high performers. Salary increases are not so great. There should be more consideration made for nursing moms in the way of nursing rooms and such. Parking can be a challenge in some locations.

    Pros

    They have a lot of training classes and sources. Everyone is encouraged to take some time from work to learn something useful.

    Cons

    Slow path of promotions. So many of the employees decide to leave after 2 or 3 years.

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment with bonus opportunities for star performers. Stock prices are climbing in the right direction providing security for retirement years. A great company to work for!

    Cons

    Plan to work hard- you will not survive here if you are not hard working and dedicated. Hard work is rewarded with bonuses but you will need to balance work/life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep lines of communication open.
