    Pros

    People, compensation, opportunities for training, mentoring programs, flexibility to WFH, reputation for excellence, career paths

    Cons

    Bare bones staff, increasing reliance on consultants, very political, the company name, and lack of general awareness by consumers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Modify company name. Make it known what is required to become an officer so there is full transparency and proof it's not who you know but what you know.

    Pros

    the people you interact with on a daily basis.

    Cons

    vp's only interested in looking good. won't pay for technical training so when people are outsourced, the lack of training hurts when job-seeking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't treat employees like idiots; outsourcing is done to improve bottom line. Don't tell folks that money isn't the reason. They're not stupid.

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

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are decent. Coworkers are generally excellent.

    Cons

    IT management "leads" via buzzwords. The CIO was incapable of telling us what his vision actually meant. They whole lot is pathetic. There are reorgs every 2 years and each brings with it a whole new set of nonsense. In the past ~6 years we've used 3 different time trackers, 3 different PTO databases, and 3 different management structures. Each AVP has 20+ developers reporting to them making promotions all but impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. Seriously, Go do something else. You are so inept it's not even funny.

    Pros

    Good company for work and family balance, casual work environment, strong leadership

    Cons

    The company does not spend enough on growing resources from within or training spend, could do better on employee recognition and promotion from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company does not spend enough time/money on growing resources from within

    Pros

    Great work environment, fosters collaboration, challenges you to think critically, and develops a useful subject matter expertise in a truly unique line of business. I feel that I am able to contribute from the minute I walk in the door to when I leave.

    Cons

    Standard to that of any bureaucratic organization, sometimes chain of command issues can be difficult to navigate. Otherwise, nothing of note.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making this a great place to work!

    Pros

    Compensation and work life are more than fair.

    Cons

    Still silo'd and still do a lot of box checking vs. what really adds value. Depending on where you work and for whom you could get a vastly different experience. I've had excellent managers and not so excellent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate, develop, trust.

    Pros

    If you a newbie in the insurance game it is a great place to start your career. Training opportunities are abundant and the folks are okay

    Cons

    Relationships rule. People won't get promotions unless someone at corporate likes you, no matter how well you perform. Once you get between 5 years there it becomes like the gov't people don't leave and you have to relocate or you'll stay where you are forever. You won't have any opportunities and you won't get to meet the right folks to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be real with staff. Don't give bonus or AVP titles to people you "like." Do it on REAL Merit.
