    Good people, bad systems. Lots of opportunity, but easier if you are related to someone high up.

    I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Large, financially sound, many offices, and opportunities.

    Cons

    Compensation favors new employees and leaves existing employees behind.
    Relatives get ahead faster.
    Puts office locations in the suburbs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should take a look at your current employees how are committed to the company (i.e. the millennials that didn't leave after 3-5 years) and make sure they are compensated commensurate with their peers. That's why we are leaving....

    They provide whatever you need no questions asked to get your job done.

    Managers can be clicky, if one has an opinion it is shared rather than making their own judgments.

    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work environment with good hours, benefits, and no on-call, you can leave work at work. The pay is decent and you have some flexibility with hours. Dress is business casual.

    Cons

    Sticklers for time management/billing. Much of the review process is opinion-based. An ordinary person has little room for advancement. Very little done for morale/team building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A company should not promote those who didn't perform well. Difficult to take people seriously or respect their position of authority if you do not respect their work ethic as a colleague. Little things like casual Fridays does a lot to help morale.

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

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment with bonus opportunities for star performers. Stock prices are climbing in the right direction providing security for retirement years. A great company to work for!

    Cons

    Plan to work hard- you will not survive here if you are not hard working and dedicated. Hard work is rewarded with bonuses but you will need to balance work/life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep lines of communication open.
