Overall positive experience.

Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp

Prosbenefits package, flexible work options, company reputation, stability

ConsDifficult 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 Senior ManagementSimplify the performance mgt process. Promote Caucasian people. See above comments.

It was a fair experience but i was tired of working in a cubicle.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp

ProsDecent 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.

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

Excellent learning opportunity in a corporate environment

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Chubb Corp

ProsGood 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.

ConsPromotion 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 Senior ManagementWork 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.

its very political

Ano (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Chubb Corp

Pros*Laid Back - Mostly people are not aggressive and its' not cut-throat environment
*Benefits - PTO, profit sharing, medical, pension, and etcs

Cons*Very Political - You have to be on your toes all the time if what you say and who you are talking to
*Promotion is about who you know vs. what you know

Advice to Senior Management*IT infrastructure is terrible.. They outsource everything using computers that are old.. They finally updated some but in terms of IT and technology I think they act like they are ahead of the curve but still using windows XP, Internet explorer, and etc..
