Pros

The people you work with are great. Overall they are very helpful, pleasant and genuinely care about each other.

Empower your people and give them autonomy to execute.

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

    Pros

    Travelers seems to be a stable company with a split headquarters in Hartford. Travelers provides competitive benefits. There are many employees who have been there a long time, and still have good values and work attitudes.

    Cons

    Employees are over worked and are having a tendency towards finger pointing in order to save their 'reputation', as there is alot of back stabbing going on. Attitudes are getting very negative

    Advice to Management

    Have more skip level meetings to learn about middle and lower management.

    I have been working at Travelers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work/Life Balance
    - Great Benefits
    - Market Share Leader in most business segments
    - Great coworkers

    Cons

    - Review process is subjective and isn't reliant upon actual results
    - Management is narcissistic - they will never admit they made a mistake or attempt to learn from someone below them
    - If you are in your 20's or coming in out of college, you won't get fair recognition for many years. Seniority is half of the review process. If you do a wonderful job, hit all your goals, and exceed expectations, you will still get a lower raise/bonus than an older employee w/ the same position. . . just because you are young... discriminatory

    Advice to Management

    Be humble. Understand that the younger generation is very quick on their feet and hardworking. Admit mistakes. If you have a young finance major who is killing it, understand that that new employee most likely knows more about finance than you... especially if they graduated recently and you never took a finance class in your life.
