    I worked at Chubb full-time

    Pros

    Excellent comp and benefits, truly decent and hardworking staff scattered throughout the org

    Cons

    Tragically inept management fueled by a culture of self congratulation. Progress at the speed of an Ice Age - practically laughable technology. With the exception of one or two gems, HR truly defines "people haters." I narrowly avoided the Ace acquisition, Godspeed to those that didn't.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up - you have some grossly ineffective legacies in your midst that are selfishly killing off their succession plans to protect their thrones and leaving you vulnerable. Give Queens a rest, you are producing embarrassing lemmings.

    I worked at Chubb full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Lots of great peers. Prior to ACE acquisition much better company anc culture.

    Cons

    They play favorites so if you aren't in you aren't treated fairly. Pay is way lower than market. Everyone except the big wigs are underpaid and if you think you aren't just look around a bit. I was offered 20k more than I was making after many many years at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the favoritism. Everyone can see it. Give people a chance to prove themselves instead of just picking who you will and will not help with career advancement.

    I have been working at Chubb full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Knowledgeable people, you can gain good underwriting experience, good PTO

    Cons

    Since ACE bought the company, all went downhill. The volume is insane, company has no integrity or backbone. Too political, promotions are based on sucking up to management. No clear career path. Pay some of the lowest in industry. Low employee morale

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more

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

    Pros

    Old Chubb - prior to the takeover in 2015 by Ace - was an excellent company (5 stars). Chubb is moving heavily into Agile and CI. Lots of work to do. Fast paced. Forward thinking.

    Cons

    Delivery-focused rather than quality-focused. Too many managers, not enough "workers". Almost zero training. Hard to move internally. Use a lot of Cognizant/Cap Gemini staff etc.

    I worked at Chubb full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    + Good pay + Flexible lunch hours + Market leader

    Cons

    - Horrible toxic culture - Bosses are vulgar and regularly berate others or use vulgarities. - Incessant drinking culture for bosses which leaves piles of work for others. - Extreme lack of empathy or welfare for employees. Very regimental and authoritative management. - High office politics and internal conflict even between teams within departments. More of ACE culture than Chubb. - Terrible bonus. <1 month.... Terrible benefits. - Please avoid at all costs even if you join Regional or Local teams. This is a toxic place.

    Advice to Management

    Reshape the organisation and review the KPIs of HODs as most of them are biased and hiding a lot of statistics. Improve your culture and benefits and treat your people better.
