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.

    Pros

    Pay is above average, lots of vacation time, my location is nice, employees nice and stick together in your team.

    Cons

    Workload is impossible...set you up to fail right out of the gait. Measurements are unrealistic and if you question things they will continue to repeat " there are lots of people who apply here everyday looking for this same job you have". Manage by intimidation in the one on one meetings with you. Always feel like you are about to get fired- and I mean everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the people alone and let them do their jobs. You have good employees there that care and can do a great job - if you would just let them.

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

    Pros

    High Salary!!! Great Benefits. Wear Jeans every Friday.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity for advancement or movement within other lines of business within the company. So apply for a position you are passionate about, because you will be there for a while.

    Expectations are impossibly high and the work load is high and overwhelming. The company is behind on technological resources.

    Advice to Management

    Travelers needs to hire more diverse managers. Minorities that are qualified, do not get many opportunities to be apart of the management team. They are often overlooked due to the nepotism or buddy system. Minority employees may not relate to the majority in management on a personal level, due to background and communication barriers. Thus causing the buddy system to deter minority employees from being hired into leadership roles within the company.

    The company needs to embrace more diverse ethics in hiring, as the portray in the mission statement and core values that the company prides itself on.
