    I worked at Chubb full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Friendly people, lots of variety. Progress quickly if you take the initiative and are proactive.

    Cons

    ACE and Chubb have very contrasting cultures. More short-term focus on deliverables under new management. Benefits could be better.

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Old Chubb - prior to the takeover in 2015 by Ace - was an excellent company (5 stars). Chubb is moving heavily into Agile and CI. Lots of work to do. Fast paced. Forward thinking.

    Cons

    Delivery-focused rather than quality-focused. Too many managers, not enough "workers". Almost zero training. Hard to move internally. Use a lot of Cognizant/Cap Gemini staff etc.

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Can't think of any positives.

    Cons

    Still ACE mentality at heart of the organization following the acquisition of Chubb. Both management and senior management pre-occupied managing the message back up the line to their superiors and keeping their jobs. Incessant focus on the here and now with no strategic direction. Brand values of craftsmanship undermined by caustic work environment where people fear for their jobs as a result of the company's short-term sales focus. This is fuelled by constant re-shuffles and re-organisation of business units, little or no recognition of internal talent with mainly external hires; and colleagues constantly leaving to pursue 'new opportunities outside the organisation'. Overall, an unsettling environment to work in. The company could get so much more from its people if it treated them better and could provide true leadership and direction - not just from the very top down.

    Pros

    Highly regarded, large company, flexible approach, aiming for the stars.

    Cons

    Company not gelling together well after the Ace acquisition, senior management communications skills need addressing, Systems are not great, there are multiple systems for generating renewals which is not great in this day and age. Documentation generation needs to be improved.

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Dynamic business with very professional and technically able people. The integration of ACE and CHUBB has naturally been a challenge but a year after the merger is settling down.

    Cons

    It can be hard work. Expectations are high sometimes unrealistically so. The technology is dated. Senior managers may need to work on how they give feedback to avoid turning people off.

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Chubb has flexible working including working from home, a good benefits package including medical, pension and subsidised gym membership, and has a culture of trusting and empowering staff.

    Cons

    Can be slow to move forward technologically. Several years of frozen head count have limited possibilities of advancement. There is a danger now with the Ace takeover that good IT practices could be replaced with inferior ones in certain areas.

    I worked at Chubb

    Pros

    European Zone IT team. A friendly, dynamic fast paced Company with a vast amount of exiting and new projects. Teams are friendly and helpful and really embarrassed the DEVOPS mentality.

    Cons

    All the things that made Chubb great, disappeared once the ACE Group merger completed. The incoming management within the European zone, seem to manage their teams with an iron fist rather than embarrassing open dialogue and trust. The teams are massively overworked and receive little in the way of recognition or appreciation. (Ratings are based on Chubb Experiences not ACE Group)

    "Interesting times"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Chubb full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic place that gets things done. Rewards people who fit the can do attitude. Trying to take the best from both companies but maybe not successfully. Pleasant enough office space and flexibility to work provided you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    Integration feels more like a takeover than a merger despite what might be said. Will Ace get the benefits? Work life balance is suffering and people starting to get burnt out. Company and Lloyds business could be combined better.
