    ProsThe company is very good at work life balance.

    Treat the job as Claims U and move on once you get what you need.

    Claims Adjuster (Former Employee) Simsbury, CT

    ProsThe people that work here are great and there was a sense of teamwork. The health benefits were good and the FLEX time was great. You will learn a lot of information as there was constant training. There was a sense of independence as long as you got your work done.

    ConsExtremely High volume of work and unobtainable goals. This is a claims field so expect no praise and only criticism. This is how you will learn quickly. You will never meet expectations and every error you make is focused on (as in any claims field) . Very low pay and no opportunities for advancement. Since it is a small office it is very political (its masked as competitive) environment and you are not paid for performance. This was a high turn over high volume high stress entry level position. Treat this position as if you are a student in school. Learn everything you can and keep all materials. This is not an area where you will advance - this is an area to learn as much as possible. You will be able to bring this knowledge to a new company where you will be looked upon as an asset and paid for your performance.

    Good Learning Experience

    Claim Adjuster (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsNew experience with Commercial insurance vs most other insurance companies that only deal with personal lines.

    Consworkload too heavy, high stress, unreliable coworkers(always calling out sick or on long term leave),

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more employees to compensate for employees on long term leave or quitting. If staffing according to the books are perfect, then on average with 1-2 people out per day, we would need 1-2 more to compensate. Low staffing means high work load which equals unhappy employees which ultimately makes the customers suffer.

    Chubb pays well but workloads are unrealistic due to an excessive focus on expense reduction.

    Human Resources (Former Employee) Warren, NJ

    ProsChallenging work, a good company to have on your resume. Chubb offers a chance to work on unique lines of business within the insurance industry.

    ConsUnrealistic amount of work. Inconsistent upper management support for change management issues. Lack of true recognition for accomplishments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake time to notice accomplishments of employees and provide more recognition. Money alone is not enough to create true satisfaction.

    Do More With Less

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Warren, NJ

    ProsGreat peers across the various disc
    Flex time (hours, work from home)
    Financial solid
    Proud to be part of company that focuses on core competency of Underwriting to make Profit and provides great claims customer service
    Formal mentoring programs avail

    ConsLayoffs - job uncertainty, work continues to increase without regards to less hands to do the job
    Politics, politics, politics!
    Lots of red tape to move initiatives forward
    Not many managers demonstrate good leadership
    Benefits are expensive and full coverage not available (only up to 90%)
    Very poor communication down the staff levels - transparency is rare
    Diversity is mostly about topics that get awards, diversity of thought is not typically appreciated
    Training Opps - haphazard, low budgets (not sure what dept / division has this: http://www.chubb.com/careers/chubb1661.html)

    Advice to Senior ManagementKudos on getting Chubb to a strong financial place. Now it is time to take a few steps back and realize that there's a cost to keeping talent and that is investment in the HUMAN resources that make the company run. Institute a culture where expenses can be managed while at the same time treating people like people - not machines.
