Great culture, solid training, awesome people, competitive salaries, lots of responsibility

Senior Underwriter (Former Employee)
Toronto, ON

I worked at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAs an Underwriter:
-Lots of responsibility from day 1
-competitive pay and good bonus potential
-great people; I no longer work there but have many close friends still with the company
-fantastic training relative to competition

Cons-Difficult to move upward;
-limited global opportunities

Advice to Senior Managementfocus more on non-underwriting, value-add opportunities like integrating all IT systems onto one platform;
take more admin duties off of underwriters' hands and push to other groups. Underwriters should spend as much time as possible with high-level account management and with business development.

Good company with good people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Chubb Corp

ProsEveryone is very nice and polite. The work culture puts importance on social activities and giving back to the community. Great place if you are planning on becoming a lifer (they reward and celebrate the number of years you stay with the company and pension is good). They do pay for performance and pay competitive to the market. Also, there is no discrimination between women and men - you see equal representation in senior leadership.

ConsIf you are the type to question authority and always strive for improvement, this may not be the right company for you. Though their products are quite innovative, the culture itself can be quite conformist. Image is extremely important (for some this my be positive, for some a negative). Tradition is also important (again depending on who you are, this could be good or bad - I put it as a con because I am someone that loves to continuously learn new things therefore I tend to like less traditional approaches to solving problems to stimulate my mind).

Chubb is an excellent place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp

ProsChubb is a great place to start your career. The company provides many learning opportunities and wants its employees to succeed. Management is very knowledgable and easy to access.

ConsThe only con is that compensation remains fairly average as compared to the rest of the industry. Chubb does attempt to make up for this shortcoming through profit sharing programs and year end bonuses.

Would have been 5 stars but for a few major instances of micro management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Chubb Corp full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAn old fashioned company (this might be a con to some), with excellent benefits and low turnover. Work-life balance is very good in most areas. Long-term employees are the majority here, creating a strong team bond and good personal relationships as well. Training opportunities are outstanding.

ConsSomewhat antiquated rules regarding business attire (suits & ties except for Fridays/summer!) and telecommuting.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview the common elements (iow the same manager) in failed or over budget projects - micromanagement is rampant and definitely contributes to the loss of skilled middle managers.
