    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, nice people who are supportive and work as a team. Open door policy to management - mid and executive levels. Opinions matter and solutions to problems are discussed as a team.

    Cons

    Mediocre retirement package. The company has a dollar to dollar match up to 3%, but only deposits to your account once a year, in January. No pension, the company again makes a one time deposit of 6% of your salary once a year. Some systems are archaic. No advancement unless you are already an underwriter.

    Advice to Management

    Give better bonuses to lower level support people. Continue with work / life balance flexibility.

    Pros

    Interesting work -- entrepreneurial company culture
    Smart and professional teammates
    Generous benefits (especially re 401k match and health)
    International reach of business creates growth opportunities

    Cons

    A bit lean in staffing -- can make project management challenging
    Dispersion of employees across locations could make it difficult to build and maintain relationships

    Advice to Management

    Left before the Chubb deal -- congrats on that and good luck with the integration

    I worked at ACE Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was a really nice work environment. They also offered good social benefits: profit share, bonuses for good performance, life insurance and 30 day paid vacation time per year.

    Cons

    There were not too many career opportunities to advance. The office I work for was located in Peru. They had a really small market share over there, so their businesses were concentrated among a few clients. That's why they are a small company over there with a little bit over 100 employees. There were not too many openings to advance in your career.

    Pros

    Chubb (ACE) is a great company to work for, especially starting as a professional associate. There is a lot of room for growth and job opportunities in many fields (underwriting, reinsurance, finance, etc.).

    Cons

    Technology is outdated and could definitely use a lot of updates and more support from IT. They also favor underwriting departments quite a bit. Obviously that's an integral part of the business, but the supporting roles should not feel ignored when the company needs those to succeed as well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, support advancement

    Pros

    Great work place culture. Management wants to see you succeed. If you work hard there will be opportunities.

    Cons

    Start up division - slightly disorganized. Currently completing an acquisition. Not too much bad to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to manage as you do. Lack of micromanagement makes it easy to succeed and want to work in a fast paced sales environment.
