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

    Senior Underwriter (Former Employee) Toronto, ON

    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

    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).

    ConsThe company does not spend enough on growing resources from within or training spend, could do better on employee recognition and promotion from within.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe company does not spend enough time/money on growing resources from within

    I Love Chubb!

    Claim Svc Ctr Examiner II (Current Employee) Simsbury, CT (US)

    ProsGreat work environment, fosters collaboration, challenges you to think critically, and develops a useful subject matter expertise in a truly unique line of business. I feel that I am able to contribute from the minute I walk in the door to when I leave.

    ConsStandard to that of any bureaucratic organization, sometimes chain of command issues can be difficult to navigate. Otherwise, nothing of note.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep making this a great place to work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
