15 years. Started as programmer trainee. Now Senior Programmer Analyst.

Senior Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 10 years

ProsVery high-quality IT department, but going downhill fast.

ConsPoor jjob security, declining morale, no room for advancement, frequent layoffs, highly political, moving from a one-of-a-kind superior insurance company to generic property and casualty insurer. Though it's stock does okay, it is a company suffering from internal decline, poor morale and horrible upper management.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a heart. You have 3 groups of stake holders. Customers, shareholders, and employees. You seem to think you have only one, and it is none of the above. A self-promoting of senior management team.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

5 years wasted

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsOld fashioned pension with quick vest (3 years). Matching 401K. 3 weeks vacation to start.

ConsMicromanagement, ridiculous work load.

More narcissists and sociopaths than I've encountered anywhere.

Dated technology and methodology. Little to no training. Promotions or even raises next to impossible. Intelligence, experience, expertise or dedication mean nothing, it's all about how long you've worked there.

While the vacation is generous, just try using it!

Don't waste your time working at this company, life is too short!

Advice to Senior ManagementThey wouldn't listen so, no point in typing anything here.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsGreat benefits, friendly co-workers, good pay, nice office, off on weekends and major holidays, nice to have alot of PTO days.

Great workplace, but better compensation structure needed

Claim (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time

ProsGreat workplace. Depending on your unit / department there is a lot of flexibility, including telecommuting one or more days a week. The company provides generous time off, decent benefits, and management support for continued professional development. There are also many opportunities to team build either in community service activities or social activities within the company.

ConsThere are two cons that stand out. The first is compensation. The bonus structure is decent, but still fairly weak compared to other companies In the industry. Overall compensation is ok. The second problem is career advancement. Someone pretty much has to either die, retire, or quit for an internal promotion opportunity to open up.

Advice to Senior ManagementStrengthen the bonus and profit sharing system and provide better compensation to retain your best talent. Also, develop people and promote more proactively. Get people ready for higher level technical positions and do less hiring from the outside.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
