    Pros

    Pros:
    * Collegial environment, for the most part. Note that this does not imply not working hard. You'll work hard but when things go wrong, the focus will be on addressing the problem and not on the kind of public shaming other workplaces seem to revel in. Everyone makes mistakes and Chubb, for the most part, seems to get that.
    * Convenient Somerset County location. If you, like so many others, live in Middlesex/Somerset/Hunterdon/Union counties, the drive here is a breeze. There's good restaurants in the area (for a suburb) and it's perfectly safe, even late at night.
    * Chubb's business model is stable and sound. Your 401K is safe with these guys, they'll probably never have to take a bailout and if you get laid off it won't be because of corruption in the C-suite.
    * Data center consolidation and organizational transformation currently in progress means a lot of opportunity for those in the right place at the right time.

    Bottom line, if you're looking for a workplace where you're treated like a human being with an employer you'll never be embarrassed of with a suburban Northern/Central NJ location, consider Chubb.

    Cons

    Cons:
    * Low turnover equates to poor career growth for those who do not schmooze their way into the popular boys and girls club.
    * Very frugal when it comes to spending training dollars. Again, bad for career growth.
    * A lot of antiquated technology and immature processes. An IT position at Chubb can hurt your resume more than help it. No one outside Chubb cares that you spent the last three years immersed in Smalltalk. Seriously, no one.
    * Salary and benefits are mediocre.

    So having said all that, let me break it down for you in the simplest terms I can muster. If you're a an IT professional with twenty or more years of career to go before you retire in Boca Raton, only work here if you have pre-existing relationships with important people in the company. That will ensure you get the few training dollars that exist and what few promotion opportunities come up. Otherwise, you're just wasting your time here, slowly poisoning your resume but enjoying every moment of it while "Chubb-nice" hypnotizes you into a false sense of complacency.

    If, on the other hand, you're near-retirement and just want a place to coast till you hit 65 or 67, then Chubb is perfect.

    A new college grad? I won't tell you what to do. They taught you how to read in college so it should be obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire a ton of middle managers for no reason whatsoever. Spark some fear into those who remain so decisions finally start getting made and work finally starts getting done. Slow and deliberate is your style, but 'Chubb-nice' can only be obliterated by some good ol' fashioned slash n' burn.
