    I worked at Chubb Corp

    Pros

    Company will be around for some time due to conservative business practices.

    Cons

    Many employees are hired based on whether they know someone in management. Management does not promote based on work achievements. Ideas are not taking into consideration from non-management. Software is antiquated and is in dire need of upgrades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster a culture that seeks to rewards those who truly earn it rather than attempting to appease someone by hiring their relatives. Also it would be a good idea to implement a system that has 360 feedback so that everyone is held accountable, not just by their superiors.

    Used to be a great, close-knit company - now only the bottom line is important.

    I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent training; good benefits; fairly good opportunities to move around and post for other jobs.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. Tons of layoffs and "restructuring" have been happening over the last couple of years. No true regard for people as human beings - a very cold corporate environment. People are here one day and gone the next - and there's no info about what happened. Very unsettling to those of us left behind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They won't listen. Paul Krump and Harold Morrison are good LEADERS. Everyone respects them and wants to work in their world. Hr is a mess - someone really needs to look at it. Can't get an answer out of anyone.

    I worked at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Health Benefits are good, salary competitive and I honestly can't remember what else was good about this company, I am sure there are more, I guess the cons have overridden the pros.

    Cons

    I worked in Claims IT and was assured by others who came into Claims IT from other departments and who eventually left the group, that the rest of the company is not like this. When I left I had to pull all of the knives out of my back. I advise anyone to stay away from this group. Chubb as a whole I hear is a good company to work for, but I wasn't sorry when they layed me off, the grass is greener on the other side, trust me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to foster an atmosphere where in order to get ahead that you don't have to stab your co-worker in the back.

    I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Cafeteria and Good gym. Most co workers are pleasant and helpful. Free Parking. Office supplies are readily available for use.

    Cons

    Over whelming micromanagement based on short sighted, "clueless to the actual job Best Practices"
    Supervisors are "robots" for managements unrealistic whims.
    Management/Supervisors will throw you under the bus in the blink of an eye.
    Work load is mind boggling- you would have to work 7 days a week 12-16 hours a day to keep up.
    When you can't keep up by putting in hours beyond a normal 8 hour day, you get hammered on your review and NO BONUS.
    VP of Simsbury, CT Specialty claims division is an ego driven, pathelogical liar.
    Morale is in the gutter. Atmosphere of strong mistrust of management.
    No management leadership and zero confidence in management from employees.
    Extraordinary amount of turn over and employee burn out.
    Highly charged political atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Specialty Claims VP of the Northeast Zone- Simsbury, CT. sweeping terminations of management and supervisory personnel in Simsbury, CT location.
    Install employees in to management positions who know the job and can lead.
    Stop worrying so much about your stock price and worry more about staffing being sufficient to perform the job correctly.

    I worked at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Stable company, very diverse, used to have more of a family environment

    Cons

    Hard to keep a fully staffed team. People would only stay a few months to a year before leaving (most of them ljust up and quit). Agents and remaining staff were very frustrated and this pattern continued for at least 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some incentive to stay and weather the storm. Do things to boost morale and people will have a sense of loyalty to stay.

    Could do better - UA perspective

    I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great business environment, good operational training services, management is dedicated to assisting you in your career.

    Cons

    The workload is UTTERLY RIDICULOUS, the amount of tasks needed to be completed in an 8 hour period is unattainable and the worse part is that management turns a blatant blind eye but still expects for you to get the job done and no, there is absolutely no overtime, Compensation....one word, abysmal, Systems are highly outdated. This company is stuck in the stone age.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease the workload for UA's, there are items that should solely be the UW's responsibility. Increased salary, you will be surprised at how an increase can be so beneficial to the underwriting process.

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

    I worked at Chubb Corp

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Extremely 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.
