    I have been working at Chubb full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for "manager discretion".
    Benefits are excellent.
    Tries to create a comfortable environment for all employees.
    Volunteer opportunities within local community.

    Cons

    Once you've joined, material salary increases are difficult to come by.
    Work-life flexibility seems to depend upon manager.

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

    Pros

    Stable career. Decent 401k benefits. Decent number of PTO days.

    Cons

    Insanely boring. Unpleasant people. People with so-so skill-sets seemed to be promoted more than people with advanced skills based on favoritism.
    Most people seemed to have drank the cool-aid and believed the company was in it for them, then seemed shocked and betrayed when we were acquired. Are you serious? It's corporate America.
    Pay increases were small.

    Advice to Management

    You probably shouldn't have cut learning and development programs.

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say except Chubb has a flexible work life balance for their employees.

    Cons

    Very low resources to handle the large volumes of work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more manpower to handle the workloads, stop being cheap.

    I have been working at Chubb full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Cooperative atmosphere among UWs and UAs. Flexible, in terms of scheduling and working from home.

    Cons

    Since the acquisition by ACE, I feel the company is headed in the wrong direction. Employees are faced with unrealistic workloads. Chubb's reputation is slipping amongst brokers and insureds, as employees simply don't have the capacity to provide the service once expected from the old Chubb. Pay is mediocre at best. Starting to truly feel like "just a number."

    Advice to Management

    Instead of overwhelming employees with additional work when someone leaves the company, hire new people. You have good employees who are going to leave because they just get burnt out. Reward employees for their efforts and hard work.

    I have been working at Chubb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits except the starting vacation could be better. great team members and an exceptional Vice President who cares about what she does.

    Cons

    Long interview process and the Human Resources recruiter totally forgot to tell me about my last interview. Received the call while working for previous employer. Was a little stressful but it worked out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the plan to provide great training. The investment will be worth the end goal of performance improvement and job satisfaction.

    I worked at Chubb full-time

    Pros

    Chubb has excellent technology and opportunities to work in other roles within the company. Chubb is the largest p&c insurer in the world.

    Cons

    Communication at Chubb is not great. Workforce tends to be older. Work environment is stuffy and traditional. Pay was on the lower end.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace young work force. Communicate with staff twice as much as you think you should. This helps the uniformed feel more comfortable at work and lowers attrition.
