Chubb is an excellent place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp

ProsChubb is a great place to start your career. The company provides many learning opportunities and wants its employees to succeed. Management is very knowledgable and easy to access.

ConsThe only con is that compensation remains fairly average as compared to the rest of the industry. Chubb does attempt to make up for this shortcoming through profit sharing programs and year end bonuses.

Great company and work environment

Underwriter Trainee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time for less than a year

Pros-Being trained at Chubb to be an underwriter is great on a resume.
-Work-life balance is fantastic and management is very flexible.
-Senior management have proven to be great mentors. They want you to succeed.
-At this point in my career, I feel there's room for advancement, which helps motivate me.
-Great benefits
-Friendly and supportive coworkers. I enjoy coming to work each day.

Cons-I wish the pay was a little higher, but doesn't everyone?
-The technology isn't great.
-Colleagues feel it takes a long time to get promoted.
           -A clearer path to a promotion is what many want.

Advice to Senior ManagementSince Finnegan took over in 2002, he has consolidated the company and "trimmed the fat" off the company. It's much more cost-conscious now than it once was. That's great for shareholders but not as great for employees. More money could be spent on technological improvements instead of buying back shares (i.e. $1.5 billion spent in January 2014). Also, the elimination of many leadership positions means that there are fewer spots for younger employees to move into. That being said, the insurance industry being one that has a higher average age than say finance, impending retirements in the next ten years or so will allow for more advancement down the line.

My advice: Recognize employees who perform well with promotions and raises so talent stays here.
