    Pros

    I have been with Travelers for about 7 years, after joining the company directly out of college. In that time, I have experienced a culture of true collaboration and support. On tenet of the company culture is its emphasis on strong performance and it it evident by the caliber of employees. There is an evident drive for success and a desire to do what is right for our customers, employees and business partners. I have been afforded incredible opportunities to grow and develop myself, including educational opportunities and on-the-job training and development. The company offers Leadership Development Programs for early-in-career talent in many disciplines that are second-to-none! I feel truly honored to be an employee of such a great company and am grateful for the support and opportunities I have received thus far. I look forward to many years of mutual success!

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons in my 7 years at the company. Truly a great place to work!
