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

    Pros

    The people - Chubb does tend to attract good people.

    Cons

    The culture did change following the merger with ACE insurance. It was disappointing to see great leaders and staff leaving as a result and it caused multiple issues with decision making and moving things along. ACE systems didn’t support the work completely previously by Chubb resulting in a lot of frustration and workarounds by underwriting staff. Not a lot of room to move unless you’re “in” with the right people.

    I worked at Chubb full-time

    Pros

    They paid on time, nice offices

    Cons

    Where to start about this company and my employment experience here.. I entered this role with many years underwriting experience and was absolutely shocked and disappointed in the mismanagement and disarray of the underwriting centre. The manager was a young woman who just outlived other employees (no doubt wasn’t able to get employment elsewhere due to “people skills” There was no solid underwriting guidelines, the team as a whole were very undertrained and put under intense time pressures. Sales staff regularly undermine the underwriting team and there is little to no relationship with brokers as a result The pay is low in comparison to the rest of the insurance industry and there is little to nil possibility progression through the company

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

    Pros

    Younger workforce so is good place to feel part of team

    Cons

    Managers not suited to roles, poor remuneration and nil work life balance despite them having a policy. The nuc is really bad with high turnover and excessive work volume. It is a sink or swim environment. Ineffective managers who would stab you in the back to make themselves look good. Definitely not the place to go, its just not worth it. The list of cons could go on and on.
