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

    Pros

    Pretty decent salary and benefits package

    Cons

    Very poor PI leadership team.
    There is a big difference between a manager and a leader, don't expext to find a leader in the PI finance department. Office culture is horrible, everyone is absolutely miserable and hate each other.
    Mundane monotonous work. Management bullys you to see their point of view, some managers actually even bully their own boss and it works!

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to know how to lead and motivate their team, be available to help their team and stop wasting time in meaningless meetings with HR.

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

    Pros

    Compensation decent, pension, 401k Match, Stock Grants, Bonus

    Cons

    I personally observed numerous occasions where "friends" are pulled into the company and placed into positions they are not qualified to hold.
    There is a difference between manager and leader - too many "leaders" focused on insignificant details.
    Lack of big picture leadership.
    Leaders in IT who have never been involved in IT before, unable to understand the technology stack, unable to move the technology stack forward. Ancient technology in many areas of the company.
    TOO much process. They add more and more process - It takes 3 weeks to get one line of code into a system for testing. If you enjoy programming, do not come here. There is a reason they pay multi-million dollar contracts to software vendors. We can't get the work done, leads to apathy and boredom.
    Small to mid size projects last YEARS.
    "You are lucky to have a job" message is constant.

    Advice to Management

    Consider streamlining IT and bringing more onshore. You have created a monster with the offshore work, how can this possibly be more efficient and cost effective?
    A few competent programmers, with less process, could easily do the work of 30 offshore programmers. You wouldn't know this though, would you? Since you have never wrote one line of code.
