I worked at Chubb Corp

Pros

Company will be around for some time due to conservative business practices.

Cons

Many employees are hired based on whether they know someone in management. Management does not promote based on work achievements. Ideas are not taking into consideration from non-management. Software is antiquated and is in dire need of upgrades.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Foster a culture that seeks to rewards those who truly earn it rather than attempting to appease someone by hiring their relatives. Also it would be a good idea to implement a system that has 360 feedback so that everyone is held accountable, not just by their superiors.

    I worked at Chubb Corp

    Pros

    Plenty of work and the challenges are there to keep everybody energized and excited. The company in itself was an excellent employer and had town halls and rewarded it's employees well.

    Cons

    Working in IT was a roller coaster. Due to a single executive, who undeservedly moved up the ranks, several people quit or were suddenly and mysteriously let go and my hunch was that it was becausue they were deemed a threat. Morale in the IT group deterioted very rapidly and many seem to hang on only because the company is a great employer but the IT department is not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CICC needs to to engage in a little bit of management clean up in it's IT Department.

    Former Employee - Senior Underwriter in Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    As an Underwriter:
    -Lots of responsibility from day 1
    -competitive pay and good bonus potential
    -great people; I no longer work there but have many close friends still with the company
    -fantastic training relative to competition

    Cons

    -Difficult to move upward;
    -limited global opportunities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on non-underwriting, value-add opportunities like integrating all IT systems onto one platform;
    take more admin duties off of underwriters' hands and push to other groups. Underwriters should spend as much time as possible with high-level account management and with business development.
