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

    Pros

    The ability to get $12k per year in bonuses is great, benefits are great, and if you actually do your job you can work there forever if you wanted

    Cons

    You will be micro-managed. The only way you will move to another department(to make more money) is by waiting at least 2-3 years before you start applying... and this is coming from someone who was in the top 10% at their job in the entire nation. So if your performance is just average, it may take longer. But when you interview and start the job, they will lie and say you can start moving to another position withing your first year.

    Advice to Management

    Let people go to other departments when they've proven themselves, get rid of all the negative people.
