    Pros

    Very invested in their employees. Your hard work will get noticed. Solid leadership team.

    Cons

    The Simsbury office is viewed as a "service center" rather than a robust UW operation. When it comes time for raises, UWs here do not get treated as well as field UWs

    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.

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

    Pros

    Great company before being acquired by ACE. Good benefits, good employees, good work/life balance, centralized operations, good processes, customer focused, employee focused -even though salaries were not competitive.

    Cons

    Culture and values, career opportunities, and trust in senior leadership are a hyperreality in this company and only exist in the delusional minds of those with C level titles.

    Many employees cite the merger as having had a negative impact on the company’s culture and I have to profoundly agree. The merger resulted in numerous layoffs, cost cutting measures, and difficulty in maintaining work-life balance. Management doesn't respect or care about their employees because they only care about the bottom line.

    Most of the seasoned venerable Chubb SVPs, VPs, AVPs, and key managers were constructively dismissed soon after Chubb's acquisition and we were left with mostly white male ACE management that lack knowledge and leadership although their resumes may appeal to some.

    Recently, empty promotions were given out to AVPs and VPs to the next pay grade in an effort to keep them from leaving even though they may not be as experienced or qualified to do the job so one wonders why seasoned managers, AVPs, VPs, and SVPs were let go early on.

    Overall, the facade looks good but the reality for those of us remaining is very grim.

    Advice to Management

    "Speak only when you are spoken to" is the guidance provided to employees if we ever run into our new CEO - get real, he is not a god! You let go valuable personnel without good reason so listen to your remaining staff before is too late.

    Pros

    Global company providing opportunity to move up in a number of different areas. They are also quote flexible. I have seen the company work with numerous people on relocation

    Cons

    Career advancement does seems to take longer if you stay within the company than if you leave and come back.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the value of flexibility. It helps to offset a lack of pay (or perceived lack of pay)

    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.
