    I worked at Chubb Corp full-time

    Pros

    The work life balance is very good and the compensation package is quite good.
    The working environment is friendly, with a low staff turnover.

    Cons

    As the company has focused on its costs base in recent years, the training budget is budget is minimal at best.
    Low staff turnover is one reason I would say career growth is less than in other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on maximising the output of current staff, this can be done without spending money on training.

    Pros

    People, compensation, opportunities for training, mentoring programs, flexibility to WFH, reputation for excellence, career paths

    Cons

    Bare bones staff, increasing reliance on consultants, very political, the company name, and lack of general awareness by consumers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modify company name. Make it known what is required to become an officer so there is full transparency and proof it's not who you know but what you know.

    Pros

    the people you interact with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    vp's only interested in looking good. won't pay for technical training so when people are outsourced, the lack of training hurts when job-seeking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't treat employees like idiots; outsourcing is done to improve bottom line. Don't tell folks that money isn't the reason. They're not stupid.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent. Coworkers are generally excellent.

    Cons

    IT management "leads" via buzzwords. The CIO was incapable of telling us what his vision actually meant. They whole lot is pathetic. There are reorgs every 2 years and each brings with it a whole new set of nonsense. In the past ~6 years we've used 3 different time trackers, 3 different PTO databases, and 3 different management structures. Each AVP has 20+ developers reporting to them making promotions all but impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Seriously, Go do something else. You are so inept it's not even funny.

    Pros

    Great work environment, fosters collaboration, challenges you to think critically, and develops a useful subject matter expertise in a truly unique line of business. I feel that I am able to contribute from the minute I walk in the door to when I leave.

    Cons

    Standard to that of any bureaucratic organization, sometimes chain of command issues can be difficult to navigate. Otherwise, nothing of note.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making this a great place to work!
