I have been working at Travelers as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

There are many different opportunities available within the company, and the training is robust. They don't make you feel like an intern, but rather an employee. It's a great place to start your career.

Cons

The environment and office culture was something I was not used to, it's very research based. Extremely quiet, not a lot of employee interaction. It takes some getting used to.

    I worked at Travelers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I guess co-workers, but even they were always trying to stab you in the back. This was mostly due to the systematic indoctrination and playing of favorites.

    Cons

    Management figures out how to turn people against one another, mostly through touting "promotions" that weren't really promotions at all. Also, the managers (UM level and above) were not good at developing claims professionals. There was one manager in particular who thought they were the end all of talent developers, but all he was interested in was his own gains. He would keep someone who was capable of promotion in a dead end spot to pad his numbers. This all went on in full view of the higher ups, who were just as obsessed with the numbers as their lackeys.

    Also, it's been said that there was no consistent way to exceed expectations (really the only way to get a raise or bonus). Management determines a rating for each office, grading them on a number of factors in competition for paltry shares of profits. If you are not on at least three committees that do nothing and aren't working on special side projects that have nothing to do with your job description, you will never get a bonus. That's the nature of this beast.

    Advice to Management

    Stop turning people against one another, grow a sense of humor and stop making everyone in the department think they are more important than you actually treat them.

    I have been working at Travelers full-time

    Pros

    good benefits. reasonable pay. They company is like a highly efficient, lean mean machine. They most financially stable, best run, insurance company. This company do not bow down to any one or any other company. Seriously, it is either their way or the highway.

    Cons

    Like any other company, you need to network and work smart, otherwise, no matter how hard you work and how long you have been there, still counts for nothing. Not enough team building activities. The management are very good are picking out and remembering any employee's faults and shortcomings, no second chances to change that in their minds.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, honestly the managers are well qualified They do a good job of carrying out company objectives, whether employees like it or not.
