Good for very junior, not for experienced, think twice before you come.

I have been working at Travelers Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good mentoring program and on-going training for junior professionals, some very good people in this field, but almost all gone in the past 4 years. It is actually a good place to pick up career fast and leave for even better place in about 2-3 years.

Cons

Working hard is recognized "verbally", but that's it. This company is not encouraging innovation, it is actually extremely conservative such that so many people just want to stay safe until retirement day and get their pension. Career advancement and financial rewards has 0 correlation with how good your work is. The compensation is OK for this particular industry, but not even comparable with other industries that can use my talents. I came from another industry and my current bonus still can't match what I got 4 years ago as a junior analyst. So, as some reviews said, think twice before join.

    Pros

    The pay is good, benefits and your direct co-workers are great

    Cons

    Managment doesn't back you up, unrealistic expectations, unnecessary stress placed on employees, work life balance is terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and understand that even in times of catastrophe your staff still has families and other responsibilities outside of the business.

    I worked at Travelers Companies full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people at this company are great to work with

    Cons

    Worst Managers ever! terrible... micromanaged shop, no room for advancement, managers are allowed to pretty much screw you over at will. HR does nothing to stop it, or the retaliation that follows. I would never ever work at this place again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of these idiotic managers before they get rid of all the talent.
