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

Pros

Good opportunity for new college graduates. Ability to learn, develop skills and career progression.
Numerous opportunities in the Field Office and the Home Office for a variety of disciplines within the Insurance industry.

Cons

Little opportunity for seasoned, well educated employees to impact strategy. Lack of career path/ movement at the 10+ years experience level.

Advice to Management

Better utilize the skill sets of employees to implement strategies. A lot of talent is being underutilized or is not well positioned to support managers. Mangers lacking the experience or background would be well served to have more seasoned members to support their teams.

    Walk the walk. If you want to keep women and minorities, give them the opportunities to advance. Don't just talk about it.
