    Pros

    Compensation and work life are more than fair.

    Cons

    Still silo'd and still do a lot of box checking vs. what really adds value. Depending on where you work and for whom you could get a vastly different experience. I've had excellent managers and not so excellent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate, develop, trust.

    Pros

    If you a newbie in the insurance game it is a great place to start your career. Training opportunities are abundant and the folks are okay

    Cons

    Relationships rule. People won't get promotions unless someone at corporate likes you, no matter how well you perform. Once you get between 5 years there it becomes like the gov't people don't leave and you have to relocate or you'll stay where you are forever. You won't have any opportunities and you won't get to meet the right folks to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real with staff. Don't give bonus or AVP titles to people you "like." Do it on REAL Merit.

    Pros

    -Flexible Work Scheduling (work from home, part-time employment, etc)
    -Great people and good culture
    -Managers that do care and help foster success
    -No micromanaging from what I've seen

    Cons

    -Pay not as high as other carriers
    -Work/Life balance not what it should be, Chubb does truly get all that they can from their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider reducing stock buybacks and invest in technology and expanding workforce so employees can provide better service to customers

    I worked at Chubb Corp

    Pros

    Good culture, benefits, etc. Company really knows how to underwrite and it shows in their results. Premier insurance carrier which I was proud to work at. Felt challenged on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Pay is very average to below average. Few opportunities for advancement unless you are in the "inner circle.". Long term employess seem to have a sense of entitlement. Almost felt like i was underwriting in a box, no big picture concept.

    Pros

    If you work in the right dept with a good boss and good people, you will be happy regardless if job position.

    Cons

    Corporate politics is everywhere, hard to stay out of it. Company promotes work life balance, but doesn't seem to readily give it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more flexibility in the flexible work plans. So many good employees would stay if they could just work remote.
