    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The environment and culture in our department was great, there was a perfect balance of work and life. It felt like a family and it made it difficult to leave. The work was consistent and the company doesn't like to fire people so they will find a new position for you if you need more to do. They also value go-getters so the more confident you are the better off you'll be.

    Cons

    With most people having been there for 5 years+ there is not much room for advancement. You can get a "senior" in front of your title but not a change in position. The benefits is alright but compared to other companies, it's not much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to manage, some people see your relaxed attitude and take advantage of it. The favoritism is obvious to everyone and sometimes they are deserved but please learn to value those who are loyal and doing great work as well.

    Not in tune with what employees want and need. I would be a better employee if I had more work life balance.

    Pros

    They have a lot of training classes and sources. Everyone is encouraged to take some time from work to learn something useful.

    Cons

    Slow path of promotions. So many of the employees decide to leave after 2 or 3 years.

    Pros

    Travelers was very accommodating to my personal schedule. Dress was casual. My manager went above and beyond to help with my job and mentor me.

    Cons

    Travelers is a large company that isn't changing anytime soon. If you are looking for a company on the cutting edge of modern growth, this is not the company - or industry - for you.

    Keep up the great work!
