    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.

    I worked at Travelers Companies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, expect to not work more than 40-50 hours a week. As an intern, they ask you don't exceed 40. IF you look for work, they'll give it to you and you're not doing busy work. I had a good relationship with my manager and team.

    Cons

    Sort of a polarized crowd age wise. People were typically 20-30 or 50+. Very conservative culture.
