I have been working at Travelers full-time (More than 5 years)

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.

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

    Pros

    Meaningful work with great co-workers

    Cons

    Since I was an intern, I had to wait to get access to certain systems that I needed to do some of my projects resulting in me waiting around with noting to do in some cases.

    Also, some co-workers seemed overworked.
