    Pros

    good question, nothing is good if you're a tenured employee.

    Cons

    experience, knowledge and tenure no longer count as anything valuable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    appreciate the people who have committed most of their lives to this company and don't discount them as second hand citizens.

    Pros

    Great management
    Friendly corporate culture
    Annual performance review for raises
    Great learning tools
    Semi flexible schedule

    As with all corporate companies, views on the company will significantly vary office by office. Our top performing office does not have many of the issues stated in some of these reviews.

    Cons

    Cyclical high workload
    Slow to implement change due to conservative nature
    Slight division between field and home office
    I do not agree that all the performance metrics are relevant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee surveys from the field will greatly increase transparency and will allow more efficient changes in workflow.

    I have been working at Travelers Companies

    Pros

    As a summer intern I was exposed to multiple ongoing projects and mentors that made coming to work everyday a true pleasure.

    Cons

    It's tough to get into full-time development programs unless you were hired for previous summers throughout your college breaks.

    I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Industry-leading training program (UPDP)
    Many training and development opportunities
    Does a great job moving people geographically or between divisions if/when the employee desires
    Values the technical aspect of the work, not just financial results (i.e. not just writing new business)
    Many formal diversity and volunteerism programs, employee clubs, etc.

    Cons

    More rules and guidelines than some competitors, but usually for good reason

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some nepotism is recognized by the general employee population, especially in the HQ location.
