    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.

    Pros

    The benefits are great as far as the medical and the dental. The people are all great to work with.

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to be a lot of career opportunities. The ones that become available seem to already have been decided.

    The two offices in Philadelphia have a great view of the old independence hall. Chubb constantly holds international recognition events and inserts itself as an equal opportunity company.

    Not that I can think of

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

    Pros

    Working from home a few days a week

    Cons

    * Morale is shot to hell
    * Everything that was good about ACE is gone, it's pretty much Legacy Chubb which is laughable since the antiquated systems/methodologies they use leave a lot to be desired
    * Seems to take 3-4 people to get any one task completed
    * Management could not care less how you're feeling. It's all "We're moving forward and you're not allowed to have any feelings otherwise"
    * Don't bother giving any ideas or opinions - they don't want to hear them, even if they ask. It's just show they're putting on.
    * We have people in charge who have no clue how things are done
    * Don't get too comfortable with any workflows or system changes. Most likely they'll change again next month or the system "enhancements" will go askew because no one thought to test them or, you know, ask the people who will use the system daily for input.

    Advice to Management

    Get your houses in line. You've got employees barely hanging on by a thread on both sides of the house. You keep forcing us into meetings where we're told we're so valued then act completely indifferent as soon as the meetings are done. I understand you're fighting for your place in this new world we're working in too, but if you lose your team members to other companies, what's that say about you as a manager?

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

    Pros

    I had very helpful coworkers that were always willing to lend a hand if I had any issues.

    Cons

    My manager was very unprofessional. She did not know much about what we did as underwriting assistance so you could not go to her for any type of help. She chose her favorite people on the team and proceeded to help them get a position in other departments when the company was going through a layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing favoritism and treat everyone equally and grade their performance by The actual work that they do rather than who you like on the team.

    Pros

    After the ACE acquisition, it has become an enormous company with lots of opportunity. The legacy Chubb company is more focused on work/life balance which is something the legacy ACE company lacked entirely. We're seeing the shift and it's been wonderful for the legacy ACE folks.

    Cons

    After the ACE acquisition, there still is much turmoil within the company with regards to merging the talent and processes between the companies. I'm sure it will ease in the coming years.
