    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible Great culture (if you are extroverted) Work life balance

    Cons

    It's not about what you know, but who you know No equal opportunities for visible minorities Only Laurier/Queen/McGill trainees get opportunities to be promoted

    Advice to Management

    Don't just preach diversity and inclusiveness, you should actually do something about it. In a city as diverse as Toronto it is unfathomable that there is not a single turban or hijab wearing employee in the office!

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Chubb for more than a year

    Pros

    The work as an Underwriter is good as Chubb's brand holds a lot of weight.

    Cons

    The people are for the most part nice, but the entire company is littered with young, loud-mouthed frat boys from University of Guelph or Wilfrid Laurier. EXTREMELY little cultural diversity on the floor. I can count on one hand the number of non-caucasian people.

    Employees are friendly. No micromanagement. Flexible hours. Work/life balance is great. Salaries are great and the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Clicky, like a sorority. Seems like the majority of the people hired are winners of a beauty pageant.
