    I worked at Chubb Corp

    Pros

    Company is ver employee-centric in that there is a great compensation package, great benefits, and room for advancement both professional and persona.

    Cons

    Senior management jumped on the outsourcing bandwagon for wrong reasons resulting in many jobs being eliminated unnecessarily. Vendors used under performed so much so that many employees were hired back from vendors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should look internally at extremely capable employee base instead of outsourcing key functions.

    Pros

    The knowledge of the industry you will gain, as well as, the company benefits. They take training very seriously and have many outlets for growth in that area. Also their name recognition will take you very far in the industry!

    Cons

    Chubb is not known for high salary compensation. They can afford to not be on the high end of the pay scale within the industry because they are one of the best insurance companies in the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To not be afraid of dropping the hammer on the inadequate people, it's important to get rid of the low achievers.

    Pros

    They really take the time to introduce underwriting and insurance to their new employees, even if you have some experience in the field. They go above and beyond with exposing the thought processes and strategies in a safe classroom environment which really prepares you for the job. The people are friendly and eager to help each other and their agents, and the workload is manageable, although it can get chaotic.

    There are flexible work options available, but that really depends on your management. Some of them are steeped in old workflows where face time means productivity rather than actual productivity metrics. The PTO time is decent enough and you can roll over time as well. The benefits are great and quite affordable.

    Cons

    The systems appear as though they haven't been updated since the 70s. If you're someone who falls in the "millennial" generation and you've worked with technology since you've been big enough to sit in a chair, prepare to be flabbergasted at these systems. They're not intuitive in the least, and you have to be an IT whisperer to get them to work in a way that allows you to get your work done. Hand to the sky, there are workarounds for every single interaction you will have with it. This is a massive con for me, because although I love the company as a whole, you can't stay here forever because of the systems. Your technology skills will atrophy, so while you'll have the fantastic underwriting knowledge that's a dying (or retiring!) Science, you won't have the skills to apply it should you one day find yourself at another company. The dinosaur technology alone means you're hired with an expiration date, unfortunately. There is no plan announced to update these systems either, so absorb as much as you can and build your career best you can until the situation forces you to seek out opportunities elsewhere just to stay competitive and competent in the industry.

    A more even application of flexible work opportunities would be appreciated too. It's awesome to have that option, but when your management won't allow it because they believe in "old fashioned work ethics" and "face time is important" it becomes a moot point. The company is quickly greying, as is the rest of the industry, so in order to prepare your staff and your company for the future more needs to be done to create an appropriate, modern work atmosphere. Your competitors have done it successfully, and you're just as good as they are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -even application of flexible work policies across all offices.
    -update your technologies/systems
    -keep reinvesting in your people

    Pros

    -Good Pay & Benefits
    -Overall Company culture tries to reflect work life balance
    -Flexible work arrangements

    Cons

    -Staffing levels not appropriate. Multiple employee engagement surveys have pointed this out but there's been no discernible change.
    -Culture of Inclusion is good, however it's stressed to such a level that a while male or non minority almost feels like a second class citizen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be quicker to respond to make decisions and changes based on solid branch recommendations. it's a very slow process.

    Pros

    * Chubb values underwriting expertise, claims handling, and relationships with their brokers have a solid reputation in the industry. These values come into action with their matrix reporting structure with branch managers who manage the agents and underwriters who need support from home office. The underwriters have to appease both in order to do their job correctly.

    Cons

    * The matrix organization can be cumbersome at times trying to please different leaders and to keep everyone in the loop.
    * They have too many meetings.
    * The have slimmed down their home office staff who has been overworked and too focused on tactics at times such that they could not develop strong enough strategies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Bulk up on home office staff. Underwriting expertise is the key to long term success in this business.
