    I worked at Travelers Companies as an intern

    Pros

    The best thing about working for Travelers was that they really emphasized work-life balance. I think it kept the energy level high and work product efficient. Everyone had an open doors policy and helped each other out. I really enjoyed going to work and interacting with the staff.

    Cons

    Since this is such a huge company, it's difficult to feel connected with the HR since they could not be directly reached except through the supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to incorporate more time between the supervisors and interns not just to receive feedback and self-improvement, but also to create company bonding.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefit package.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, management tends to be concerned with watching out for their own jobs and not about the people who report to them.

    Pros

    Stable financial results for the overall company.

    Cons

    IT is split into silos for each line of business resulting in inefficiencies, conflicting priorities, and no enterprise strategic or tactical planning. Who-you-know is more important than what-you-accomplish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have one CIO instead of six. Implement an enterprise VMO for Information Systems.

    Pros

    Paid time off is the only pro.

    Cons

    Superior in favoritism and far too many relatives working together. Management picks their favorites and annual bonuses and merit increases are steadily paid only to those. Despite meeting or exceeding expectations on performance evaluations, hard working employees are overlooked if you are not "in" with your manager.

    Way too much work and not enough employees so the answer is to send work to India where they make errors and we fix them.

    Pricing of policies is unethical and morally questionable. The department of insurance should investigate!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the little people, the ones that handle the day to day work before making procedural changes. The CONSTANT change is unbearable
