Underwriter (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 March 2017
Travelers is still very much in transition and the culture is almost uncanadian. This company expects you to work extra for no pay. Work life balance?? There isnt any unless you enjoy working all the time including scheduled time off. There is favortism. People at the top dont seem to know anything about how this company actually runs. Technology is mediocre at best. There is optimism about the new ceo but other than that there is nothing positive about this place. Its a call centre with zero flexibility.
Rather not say (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 February 2017
You are treated with disrespect and not allowed to enjoy your job. The training is terrible, with people who should be teaching you looking into their cellphones instead. The accounting department is unhelpful as well and don't have proper invoices set up.
Courteous mailroom is the only good thing about this place.
Enterprise Sales Executive (Current Employee) – Oakville, ON – 23 November 2016
This merger has been in the works for 4+ years now and they have yet to get it right. Most brokers are not supportive of Travelers regardless of the products they offer. Morale within the company is horrible, they can't get people in the doors to fill positions that are available as most in the industry know the challenges of the merger.

Claim Professional (Current Employee) – Toronto – 23 February 2015
The company used to be great place to work. The culture has shifted dramatically within the last nine months. Great for people who love to work. Not so great for people who have other interests outside of work.
A rewarding place of work in a flexible yet structured environment.
SENIOR UNDERWRITER GENERAL INSURANCE (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 September 2014
For the last 8 years of the 13 I have been employed with Travelers, formerly The Dominion, I have worked in a home office setting. I have structured hours where I answer telephone calls and emails from brokerages, co-workers and other industry related contacts. I also assess risk and determine whether it is a fit based on company philosophy and underwriting criteria. I work with an excellent team and a very supportive manager, and thoroughly enjoy the balance between the social and technical sides of the position. I look forward to working either outside the home, or in a home office atmosphere.
