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

    Pros

    Excellent development programs, a great place to start a long term CAREER. You’ll feel a great deal of pride at Travelers compared to other companies.
    Culture is Key.

    Cons

    Few if any. Large organizations tend to move slower in terms of getting new ideas on the ground, but this is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, we appreciate the investment you’re making in the company’s future.

    I have been working at Travelers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work with some great people that want to see you succeed. They explained they are willing to allow people to move to different departments, and possibly even different career paths, in order to retain talent. Work-life balance so far has been great. Working from home is an option. Wearing of blue jeans is allowed (it was not previously).

    Cons

    Little formal training (though others have been more than willing to share knowledge and provide mentorship). Slow to adopt some new technologies.
