I worked at Travelers full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great co-workers. It is a good place for young college graduates who are entering the work force.

Cons

Most employees who have worked for Travelers for a long time are let go before being able to retire. Hardly anyone retires at Travelers, and those who have are not long-term employees. There is too much unwarranted micromanagement and negativity. The stress caused is unhealthy for most employees.

Advice to Management

Get get rid of the salary and ranking scale. Ranking does not encourage teamwork. ALL employees want to feel appreciated and respected. Please keep in mind employees are people & not numbers; they are also consumers. Only concentrating on the numbers encourages dishonesty.

    I worked at Travelers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Travelers is a large company (stability) with good benefits, vacation and sick time, 401K etc. During my tenure they offered flexible work schedules and part time work.

    Cons

    They don't seem to value their employees. In particular, it appears that long-term employees with higher salaries are being harassed and forced out for perceived "performance issues". I left in 2005 prior to a "mass exodus" of "poor performers". They also did away with flex and part time hours which is a shame for working mothers.

    I worked at Travelers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture, good people, strong company.

    Cons

    Only a few bonuses given to small portion of consultants as opposed to each of the top performers receiving incremental amounts. Why the distrust with telecommuting? - just about every insurance company lets their consultants work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Don't furlough based strictly on seniority, some of the hardest workers and the young energetic ones.
