Pros

It's possible to do very well here if you work hard and take your responsibilities seriously. Dedication is noticed and there are opportunities to rise fast in the right areas.

Cons

Travelers is a conservative company with old school values. Many processes, from recruitment to getting approval on specifications, are still very informal. Sometimes it takes a lot of relationship building and perseverance to get things done. You need to be a self-starter on day one – there’s no hand-holding. They expect a full days work and then some if needed.

Advice to Management

There been a major surge in project management hirings as of late. So much that some projects have two or three of them. A better investment would be in quality management; developing a framework for reducing errors and mistakes at the project level.

    Pros

    there are some nice people here.

    Cons

    Would think twice about coming here unless you want to get your feet wet. And if you think "it can't be worse than where you are now" think twice. Poor communication, extremely disorganized company run by operations which does not know what it is doing. Amazing that a company so large is so technologically backwards and inefficient. Workloads with little support and tremendous inefficiencies cause people with talent to finally lose spirit. That is unless you happen to have a good manager which is very rare here.

    Advice to Management

    Wow, this would be a discertation.. Stop gettng your reports and silly data off the sweat of underwriters backs and create systems that are efficient once and for all - stop creating bandaids. And whoever gave operations all the power over underwriting is an idiot. All it has done is create opposing camps as operations creates more workflows and lets support staff do less and less and underwriters more and more. Let us do our jobs which is what were hired for.
