    Pros

    Great Recruiters. Very passionate about what they do. Lots of talent within. Love the Company..... TA department???? It was once loved.

    Cons

    *not what you know, it's who you know.
    * They hire their own from the outside, pay them a lot of money, and sure they will get huge bonuses.
    *They inform staff about "SOME" opportunities, but don't encourage you to apply
    *They don't tell you about "SOME" opportunities and promote those that they know. you eventually find out via email announcement
    *Interesting fact, most recent internal promotions.... well... they've only been with the company for about a year. All former Chubb employees. it's looking like a mini merger between Chubb TA & Travelers TA.
    bonuses are awful.. well depends how buddy buddy you are with some
    Morale... to the floor.. never seen anything like it

    Advice to Management

    I'm no longer there because of these reasons. My advice, not that it would matter is that when leadership is visiting... make a point to show yourself to staff...let them know when you are visiting.... get to know them....don't just walk by them and not acknowledge and look at them from head to toe as if they were less than zero. i really hope it changes before you start losing more

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Travelers.

    Interview

    The first step of the process was a phone interview that essentially gauged interest in the company and internship. Questions were behavioral in nature, referring to hardest classes or experiences so far. One question addressed the connection between data and insurance.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain why data can make such a difference in the insurance world.   Answer Question
