    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good work life balance. Good training. Good co-workers.

    Cons

    Would rather pay bottom dollar to a trainee than promote and pay from within. Once you have been pigeon holed in your position, they will try and keep you there. No longer offering moving packages, even for promotions unless you are an AVP or above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain your best in class employees, you need offer a competitive and appropriate salary.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent. Coworkers are generally excellent.

    Cons

    IT management "leads" via buzzwords. The CIO was incapable of telling us what his vision actually meant. They whole lot is pathetic. There are reorgs every 2 years and each brings with it a whole new set of nonsense. In the past ~6 years we've used 3 different time trackers, 3 different PTO databases, and 3 different management structures. Each AVP has 20+ developers reporting to them making promotions all but impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Seriously, Go do something else. You are so inept it's not even funny.

    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.

    Learned a lot

    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.
