    I have been working at Travelers full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are so many opportunities at Travelers so your career can be whatever you want it to be. Great benefits (medical, 401k match, PTO) and Executive Leadership makes employees their priority. In many positions you can work from home when necessary, which is very helpful.

    Cons

    It can be very difficult to understand where your specific role fits in within your department or the entire company as it's such a large organization.

    I worked at Travelers full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The co-workers you will meet and help you make it through the day.

    Cons

    Long hours, little respect, quantity vs quality of work is what seems to matter. Managers are inexperienced and only listen to Senior Management. They make decisions without knowing the actual work, nor listen to the staff. If you want a life outside of work, this is not the place, there is no life/work balance. Managers go home and staff are left to work evenings and weekends to meet expectations or you will be written up on your performance review. They only want those who will not speak up against management who has no idea how to do the actual work.

    Highly technical and risk aversive underwriting company. Good learning.
