    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.

    Former Employee - Senior Underwriter in Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    As an Underwriter:
    -Lots of responsibility from day 1
    -competitive pay and good bonus potential
    -great people; I no longer work there but have many close friends still with the company
    -fantastic training relative to competition

    Cons

    -Difficult to move upward;
    -limited global opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on non-underwriting, value-add opportunities like integrating all IT systems onto one platform;
    take more admin duties off of underwriters' hands and push to other groups. Underwriters should spend as much time as possible with high-level account management and with business development.

    Pros

    Solid Financial Company
    Supervisors and Local Managers are fair and treat employees well. Their knowledge of the business is excellent and they are willing to teach anyone who is willing to learn.

    Cons

    Lack of direction and communication between Senior Managers in Home office and local Senior Manager.
    Reporting structure excludes those with technical knowledge.
    Work load is at a all time high. Due to lack of resources Supervisors and Managers are pulled from core responsibilities to focus on projects and areas that should be managed by others.
    Salary is behind market

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology to free up employees to execute their core responsibilities. Supervisors and Managers spend too much time running reports and filling out spreadsheets. Give staff real time information on performance.
