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

    Pros

    For those who want to learn and grow their career, this is the place. Leaders genuinely care about us, our customers, and the business. Coworkers are friendly, helpful, and caring. Want to be involved in work projects? Community events? Healthy walks? We have all that. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    We work at a fast pace - if that's not your thing, this isn't your place. We work as a team - if that's not your thing, this isn't your place. We value diversity in every way - if that's not your thing, this isn't your place. The only constant is change - if that's not your thing, this isn't your place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on valuing us, listening to us, and supporting us. Help us understand when things get complicated or don't make sense. Technology is on the move...stay on the train!

    I worked at Travelers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Travelers was a great place to work, was very flexible, gave me many opportunities, had great leadership who were genuinely engaged and cared about me and my career and was truly a fun place to work.

    Cons

    The majority of leadership is in Hartford and continuing to move up outside of Hartford can be difficult.

    I worked at Travelers full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic place to work. Travelers is a company run by some of the best and brightest in the industry. They're on the path to transforming the business from the inside-out, while staying grounded in the foundational principles that made them so successful over the years. Very family-oriented place, where you can actually have a work-life balance, as evidenced by the many leaders who are working parents.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Advancement opportunities can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people and innovation!

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

    Pros

    Pay is on par with industry. Great benefits. Solid financials. Many capabilities to meet agent/customer needs. Good job of keeping an eye on the future.

    Cons

    While pay is decent, bonuses are inconsistent and generally bad. Underwriting referral process is overbearing. Re-underwriting of renewals annually. Underwriting authority is on paper only, there is always a “trigger” for referral. Advancement is nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Look to promote from within. Spend less time on re-underwriting so AEs can put more focus on new business. Reduce referral triggers so AEs can be empowered.
