    Former Employee - Senior Underwriter in Toronto, ON

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

    Pros

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    focus 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.

    Pros

    Everyone 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.

    Cons

    If 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).

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Good work life balance. Good training. Good co-workers.

    Cons

    Would rather pay bottom dollar to a trainee than promote and pay from within. Once you have been pigeon holed in your position, they will try and keep you there. No longer offering moving packages, even for promotions unless you are an AVP or above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain your best in class employees, you need offer a competitive and appropriate salary.
