    Pros

    good pay, great benefits. Great location, (downtown Chicago) . Matching 401k,(up to a point) great health insurance. Being part of a respected name in the insurance industry.

    Cons

    The merger of the two companies, now one corporation, has left a lot of people literally out in the cold and out of a job, myself included!

    Advice to Management

    I have none.since I know nothing about the new, expanded organization.

    I worked at Chubb full-time

    Pros

    Overall ACE/Chubb was a great company to work for over the past five years. They compensated me well right out of college and allowed me to move across the country and stay with the company. My first manager was very helpful in educating me on the insurance industry. I completed my CPCU, which they paid for, and I was encouraged to attend the annual graduation ceremony.

    Cons

    Chubb is such a large company and it is very segmented. Smaller insurance companies seem to have people wearing more than one hat - underwriting 9-12 coverage lines, helping out with other divisions and learning more from those experiences. Chubb has you underwriting 1-4 products at most. Their divisions do not interact with one another and you do not learn about any other product lines than the ones you underwrite. It was a great place to start my career but I wanted more versatility in my day to day tasks. Also, my last manager was in the office one day every two weeks. It was difficult to establish a relationship and perform well for someone who did not care to show up to work.

    Advice to Management

    Senior level management was often unapproachable. In quarterly company meetings, we were asked to come up with questions and Evan Greenberg almost always made you feel as if your question was not worthy of his time.

    I worked at Chubb full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work was interesting and had a lot of variety. People were friendly. Good benefit package. Good work - life balance.

    Cons

    Too much political posturing. Too many meetings involving too many people, many of whom didn't need to be involved. Salary was low. Little opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings are necessary, but to be effective the decision makers should be present and participate. If one person is performing a task you don't need twelve others from around the world on a conference call talking about it.

    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.

    Pros

    Compensation is decent and the benefits are ok.

    Cons

    Chubb was a great place to work prior to ACE purchasing & Rebranding. Now unfortunately even after a full year, the company still lacks a consistent direction. When someone leaves they do not replace them or they are slow to fill the void. This has caused other people in their units to take on additional workloads, making them second guess their jobs and to seek work elsewhere. Thus the cycle continues.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the do more with less thinking and get back to the basics of customer service. Our policy holders pay a high premium for perfect service. Unfortunately it is difficult to provide exceptional level service when the thinking is doing more with less.
