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

Pros

Travelers has an extremely collaborative culture and is committed to their employees and policyholders. The company genuinely cares about its employees and their development/growth. There is a wide variety of internship opportunities, as well as jobs in Marketing, Finance, Accounting, Technology, Human Resources, Risk Control, Underwriting, Claim, Government & Regulatory Affairs, Operations and Actuarial. Travelers embraces innovation, supports and encourages employee volunteerism in local communities, and is an extremely generous company, donating millions of dollars to hundreds of charities. Travelers has always been very disciplined when it comes to underwriting, which has contributed to their financial strength and the company's longevity. The company's underwriting expertise, commitment to do what is right and breadth of resources is no match for other insurance carriers.

Cons

Not many I can think of.

Advice to Management

Retain our underwriting discipline, and explore ways to become more flexible for those who may need to work remotely to strike the right work/life balance. We may lose out on some great talent if some departments/areas are still of the mindset that all employees need to work in the office 5 days a week.

    Pros

    Good benefits. That is it,

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism among the management staff. If you are not one of their favorites it’s very difficult to be promoted to another position. I believe they call it kissing up.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the politics. You will then see the employees that really do the work.

    I have been working at Travelers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Fairly relaxed environment.
    - Methods are old fashioned.

    Cons

    -Will be respected more if one of your relatives is higher up in the company as an intern.
    - Does not give feedback despite asking for it multiple times.
    - More emphasis is placed on how they can mold you to fit their vision versus how much and how well you can contribute to the company.
