    I have been working at Travelers Companies

    Pros

    There are many good and smart people. Focus is on getting better all the time. Lots of opportunities to learn and to contribute. Management emphasis is properly on responsible profit.

    Cons

    Tight deadlines are used to motivate people. Management can try to do too much at once. Different parts of the business may not always work together.

    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time (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

    Every single person I've encountered at Travelers have been wonderful. They are kind and gracious of your time regardless of your position or theirs for that matter.

    Cons

    I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Travelers. So far, management has been the best I've ever worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Your class and appreciation for every employee really shows and has to pay off in the long run.
