    I worked at Chubb full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely None. Baltimore office had nothing positive going for it. Snobs.

    Cons

    Absolute worst place I have ever worked. Unrealistic work load. More and more work piled on you that you could never get close to even being caught up or ahead. Underwriters demanded that you do all of their work for them. If you took even one day off, you would return at least a week or more back in the "hole." No work/life balance. Nasty, spiteful, berating Underwriters. Management made you feel useless and you could never do anything correctly, no matter how hard you tried. Favoritism. Never trust the managers. NEVER trust HR.

    Advice to Management

    Get some managers who actually know what they're doing and will actually support their employees. Get rid of the slime ball managers. Try treating employees like human beings. Only concern seemed to be $ and trying to maintain the image that everything was so wonderful, when the place was actually crumbling around them.

    Pros

    Used to be flexible work arrangements until ACE took that away.

    Cons

    Management, including legacy Chubb managers, are generally only concerned about their careers.
    Most managers got their jobs through dumb luck and aren't qualified for jobs outside the company.

    Advice to Management

    Value legacy Chubb employees who made Chubb great!

    Pros

    Office was very flexible. Great working environment.

    Cons

    Managers were very hands off. Training was minimal, more on the job training than anything. Health insurance went down from year to year as costs went up.

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

    Pros

    Chubb offers stability, opportunity for advancement via management rotation program, great benefits, work on independent adhoc projects to gain visibility, depending on your team- great work-life balance, and great management.

    Cons

    I've been with the company over 10 years. Although, there are opportunities for advancement, it may be a challenge to move ahead in some areas of the company. That is why I'm giving a 4 star rating as opposed to a 5 star rating. Every experience is different. Despite my personal experience, I strongly urge you to consider CHUBB. You're experience may be different.

    Advice to Management

    For loyal employees, over10+ years, who are willing to work smart not hard they should be rewarded/ recognized accordingly for they're work efforts.

    Pros

    Long standing company with top notch product offerings. Great training programs.

    Cons

    Very corporately run. Lots of department/company meetings. You can be average at your job but if you make friends in upper management you will move through the ranks much more quickly. Pay is scaled unequally. HR is not to be trusted.
