    Great Opportunity. I enjoyed work there for the summer. you get to network and meet a lot of people in the Insurance industry

    If you intern anywhere other than Connecticut it seem like your less likely to be offer a full time position

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities since Travelers is a multi-line insurer. Excellent work/study program. Great ability to network given the large amount of actuaries employed. Actuarial community is extremely tight knit. Pay is good for the area.

    Cons

    Exam raises are not on par with other major carriers. Lots of older actuaries and extensive reporting layers in the Business Insurance areas. Hartford isn't a desirable city.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management is doing an excellent job. Actuarial management could re-evaluate exam raise program.
