    I worked at ACE Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training is great and one on one basis. Time off is usually granted with little push back, benefits and 401k are amazing.

    Cons

    Thankless position. Currently in a pooling. No first hand interactions with underwriting staff. Moving up is tough unless you know someone in the industry.

    I worked at ACE Group as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, they really value the employee. Big company benefits, with the feel of a smaller company. I really enjoyed my time at ACE and learned a lot.

    Cons

    Company can be unorganized at times. Take more time on the front end to develop ideas to prevent unnecessary rework on the back end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest time in developing the internship program.

    Former Employee - Intern in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at ACE Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very laid back company culture which eventually promoted better working standards. Everyone I met at this company was very friendly.

    Cons

    Though my job had a lot of potential, and I feel I could have learned a lot in my internship there, I eventually could not and this was highly disappointing. Also, I was asked during the interview if I could drive, I said I could, and later I found out I was expected to visit a different state every so often, though I was not told this beforehand.

    Pros

    Innovative global company. Uses a tool that allows for collaboration across all business units, and geographies. Very stable financially.

    Cons

    Local underwriting management does not trust employees enough. Almost all decisions go through one person and work gets bottlenecks, causing delays and loss of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change local underwriting management.
