    Great company who takes care of high performers

    Senior Underwriter (Current Employee) Boston, MA (US)

    Pros-Flexible Work Scheduling (work from home, part-time employment, etc)
    -Great people and good culture
    -Managers that do care and help foster success
    -No micromanaging from what I've seen

    Cons-Pay not as high as other carriers
    -Work/Life balance not what it should be, Chubb does truly get all that they can from their employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider reducing stock buybacks and invest in technology and expanding workforce so employees can provide better service to customers

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

     

    Learned a lot

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood culture, benefits, etc. Company really knows how to underwrite and it shows in their results. Premier insurance carrier which I was proud to work at. Felt challenged on a regular basis.

    ConsPay is very average to below average. Few opportunities for advancement unless you are in the "inner circle.". Long term employess seem to have a sense of entitlement. Almost felt like i was underwriting in a box, no big picture concept.

    Still debating

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you work in the right dept with a good boss and good people, you will be happy regardless if job position.

    ConsCorporate politics is everywhere, hard to stay out of it. Company promotes work life balance, but doesn't seem to readily give it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave more flexibility in the flexible work plans. So many good employees would stay if they could just work remote.

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

     

    Chubb is an excellent place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsChubb is a great place to start your career. The company provides many learning opportunities and wants its employees to succeed. Management is very knowledgable and easy to access.

    ConsThe only con is that compensation remains fairly average as compared to the rest of the industry. Chubb does attempt to make up for this shortcoming through profit sharing programs and year end bonuses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of of the pricing index.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would have been 5 stars but for a few major instances of micro management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAn old fashioned company (this might be a con to some), with excellent benefits and low turnover. Work-life balance is very good in most areas. Long-term employees are the majority here, creating a strong team bond and good personal relationships as well. Training opportunities are outstanding.

    ConsSomewhat antiquated rules regarding business attire (suits & ties except for Fridays/summer!) and telecommuting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview the common elements (iow the same manager) in failed or over budget projects - micromanagement is rampant and definitely contributes to the loss of skilled middle managers.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Exceptional insurance carrier, great employer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsOpen postings for opportunities, strong compensation.

    ConsRelocation benefits have decreased making opportunities limited to local geography. Flattened organization does put stress on employees at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to invest in young talent but find ways to reward the many experienced staff.

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