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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Micromanagement, 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 ManagementAdvice

    They wouldn't listen so, no point in typing anything here.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    A couple of the managers seem stuck up. And some seem really fake to me. Christmas parties need improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More friendly managers would be nice. Nicer Christmas parties with more flexibility to have Christmas Party some where different every year would be nice.

    I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen 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.
