    Pros

    Work from home and good business folks

    Cons

    Culture of blame , fire employees for no mistake, no work life balance, stressful environment , no trust in your work , developers are everything and no other work has any value in this organization

    Advice to Management

    Kindly bring in a process and grow with people around you. Please do not have a controlled and blaming environment nobody will stay for more than a month. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE and worst management culture

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Supportive management, collaborative workplace, flexible work environment and younger company

    Cons

    Promotions take a long time to develop and are very much dictated by Human Resources conception of what should happen across the company instead of per person.

    I worked at Chubb full-time

    Pros

    At one time Chubb offered not just a pension plan but profit sharing and stock options for all. Take care of your people first and they will take care of you. One of the reasons people stayed on for a very long time and made Chubb an outstanding company.

    Cons

    That all changed and not just recently. They took away profit sharing so the higher ups can get a bigger piece of the pie. Stock options taken away because it was a good idea just to give that option to execs. Now the pension is going or gone not to mention the constant micro management.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, too many of them including the CIO, are incompetent. What you broke can never be fixed.

    Pros

    Work/life balance Ability to work from home Nice people to work with

    Cons

    Canadian CIO. This person is rude and angree all the time, does not know how to listen. CIO does not respect IT people opinion. If your opinion is different you will be fired. If you say 'no' you will be fired. Healthy discussions are not accepted.

    Advice to Management

    Advise to Canadian HR - open your eyes. The situation is not healthy. People with excellent knowledge of Chubb business are fired or left because of current CIO. How come no one ever talk to people to find the real reasons? It use to be the best place to work till this person took the ownership of the department. Wake up people.

    I worked at Chubb for less than a year

    Pros

    * Unlimited smoke breaks for those who require it * Hours are flexible you can show up when you want * Leadership on the same floor. Unlike others who do not sit with their teams * Additional flex days are great

    Cons

    * Hard work counts for nothing, its all about who you know and smoke with. * The level of micro management is off the chart,it is strongly discouraged to do anything without the entire IT leadership reviewing first (which often takes days for a simple change). * Lower level colleagues are great, but there is a big blame culture, nobody wants to sign off or make a decision without the one person at the top. If your project...

    Advice to Management

    Chubb how have you allowed things in this department to get this bad? Why are Canadian HR not taking the feedback of those who have left previously and working on this department? Your top IT talent is swiftly leaving and this is acceptable? If something isnt done soon you're going to find yourself using more kids as fillers in IT leadership as all of the experienced professionals will leave.

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

    Pros

    -Work from Home option 2 to 3 days a week -Flexible working hours -Extremely talented project teams -Close to union station

    Cons

    -A lot of favoritism in the IT department. Employees with very little experience are promoted every year while the experienced talented staff is getting demoted ( or as they would call it restructuring). Promotions are based on CIOs favorites and all loud Ryerson/Wilfred Laurier grads are becoming supervisors here. -No recognition for efforts you put in. -Politics in IT department is off the roof. If you socialize...

    Advice to Management

    The IT department is definitely one of the worst places to work at. The quality of work is good but the management needs to be changed in order to retain talent. HR needs to take action as many people who have left have provided them with the feedback they need to improve the situation.
