Great workplace, but better compensation structure needed

Claim (Current Employee)

I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time

ProsGreat workplace. Depending on your unit / department there is a lot of flexibility, including telecommuting one or more days a week. The company provides generous time off, decent benefits, and management support for continued professional development. There are also many opportunities to team build either in community service activities or social activities within the company.

ConsThere are two cons that stand out. The first is compensation. The bonus structure is decent, but still fairly weak compared to other companies In the industry. Overall compensation is ok. The second problem is career advancement. Someone pretty much has to either die, retire, or quit for an internal promotion opportunity to open up.

Advice to Senior ManagementStrengthen the bonus and profit sharing system and provide better compensation to retain your best talent. Also, develop people and promote more proactively. Get people ready for higher level technical positions and do less hiring from the outside.

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

Not a Career

Customer Service Claims Representative (Current Employee)
Chesapeake, VA (US)

I have been working at Chubb Corp full-time for more than a year

ProsGenerous PTO (17 days); consistent work schedule

ConsNo advacement
Underpaid for the quality and quantity of work expected
Outdated , slow computer systems
They like to almost excusively hire college grads for the call ceter, but they don't pay extra for the education (pay is below what someone with a GED would get at Geico in Virginia Beach). Added to that, there's no advancement; so, unless you got your degree to make $30,000 in a call center your entire career, don't expect to work here for more than a year or two. Everyone under 35 leaves within that timeframe for this reason.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpgrade computer systems. We shouldn't have to place callers on hold for 3-5 minutes just to wait to get to the next screen.
Cultivate a culture of promoting from within.
Pay for what you expect. Don't offer below average pay and expect above average work. You'll wind up with high turnover and the poor customer service that comes with it.
