    Pros

    Good company for work and family balance, casual work environment, strong leadership

    The company does not spend enough on growing resources from within or training spend, could do better on employee recognition and promotion from within.

    Pros

    Compensation and work life are more than fair.

    Cons

    Still silo'd and still do a lot of box checking vs. what really adds value. Depending on where you work and for whom you could get a vastly different experience. I've had excellent managers and not so excellent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate, develop, trust.

    I worked at Chubb Corp full-time

    Pros

    The work life balance is very good and the compensation package is quite good.
    The working environment is friendly, with a low staff turnover.

    Cons

    As the company has focused on its costs base in recent years, the training budget is budget is minimal at best.
    Low staff turnover is one reason I would say career growth is less than in other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on maximising the output of current staff, this can be done without spending money on training.

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

    Pros

    An old fashioned company (this might be a con to some), with excellent benefits and low turnover. Work-life balance is very good in most areas. Long-term employees are the majority here, creating a strong team bond and good personal relationships as well. Training opportunities are outstanding.

    Cons

    Somewhat antiquated rules regarding business attire (suits & ties except for Fridays/summer!) and telecommuting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the common elements (iow the same manager) in failed or over budget projects - micromanagement is rampant and definitely contributes to the loss of skilled middle managers.
