    Pros

    benefits package, flexible work options, company reputation, stability

    Cons

    Difficult to get promotions unless you are a diverse employee. There is so much focus on diversity that they have lost sight of talent, skill sets, knowledge and hire/promote based solely on your diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the performance mgt process. Promote Caucasian people. See above comments.

    Pros

    Decent salary and the employees are generally nice. Underwiritng can become somewhat of a bore after a few years. You have ot have a sincere passion for insurance to really enjoy being at this company.

    Cons

    You must do a lot of networkign with senior executives to get ahead. and be willing to relocate at the drop of a hat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please formalize a process to allow feedback to reach senior level executives. Also, diversify the company more to avoid groupthink.

    I worked at Chubb Corp

    Pros

    Good benefits, generally good and supportive management. Generally generous vacation policy and personal days off policy. Given time and the willingness to relocate, promotion opportunities are there.

    Cons

    Promotion can be difficult if you are unwilling or unable to relocate. In general, they have a very reserved and conservative style of management, so may be 'boring' so to speak for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to maintain the company culture that was built over the previous century. Do not let good people be poached away by competitors because of short-term budget constraints as the education given to employees is excellent, but when they leave, Chubb ends up educating their competitors effectively.
