    Pros

    Employees genuinely love what they do. Management is open to change and thought leaders are willing to drive it. Your voice matters and you are urged to come to the table with new ideas. While the industry can be slow moving, Travelers is constantly making the effort to make progressive strides. This is a company that has established itself in the market place but refuses to become complacent.

    Cons

    No cons in my experience thus far. Travelers was absolutely the right choice for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the members of your team. Change can be intimidating but unchartered territory is also exciting!
