I have been working at National Financial Partners as an intern (less than an year)Pros
Collegial environment, for the most part. Note that this does not imply not working hard. You'll work hard but when things go wrong, the focus will be on addressing the problem and not on the kind of public shaming other workplaces seem to revel in. Everyone makes mistakes and Chubb, for the most part, seems to get that.
* Convenient Somerset County location. If you, like so many others, live in Middlesex/Somerset/Hunterdon/Union counties, the drive here is a breeze. There's good restaurants in the area (for a suburb) and it's perfectly safe, even late at night.
* Chubb's business model is stable and sound. Your 401K is safe with these guys, they'll probably never have to take a bailout and if you get laid off it won't be because of corruption in the C-suite.
* Data center consolidation and organizational transformation currently in progress means a lot of opportunity for those in the right place at the right time.Cons
Training progress is tedious .
* Low turnover equates to poor career growth for those who do not schmooze their way into the popular boys and girls club.
* Very frugal when it comes to spending training dollars. Again, bad for career growth.
* A lot of antiquated technology and immature processes. An IT position at Chubb can hurt your resume more than help it. No one outside Chubb cares that you spent the last three years immersed in Smalltalk. Seriously, no one.
* Salary and benefits are mediocre.
