Our History
Since 1897, CNA has been providing outstanding service and an ongoing commitment to building long-term relationships, earning us a reputation for being a carrier that inspires trust. At CNA, we take pride in our ability to offer innovative products and services that meet the evolving needs of our customers and business partners alike.

As the 8th largest U.S. commercial insurer and the 13th largest U.S. property & casualty insurer, we provide insurance protection to more than one million businesses and professionals in the U.S. and internationally. We understand the importance of being where our customers are. Headquartered in Chicago, CNA has offices throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. In these locations, we work with highly professional independent agents and brokers to ensure our customers receive the personal service and attention they look for in a carrier.

Our Financial Strength
Businesses can rely on CNA's financial strength and stability. CNA is highly rated for financial strength by all the major independent rating agencies. We maintain a strong balance sheet - the financial foundation of any insurance company - through a conservative investment philosophy and an ongoing, disciplined evaluation of assets and liabilities. CNA is well positioned to withstand the challenging conditions in the financial and insurance markets.

CNA professionals are committed to developing long-term relationships with our customers and distributors. We take our connections with local charities and organizations seriously, volunteering time and financial support to the communities where we live and work. This dedication to our customers, business partners and local communities differentiates us from other carriers and enables us to attract and retain a team of outstanding insurance professionals who keep the customer at the heart of everything we do.

At CNA, our customers are at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to earn their trust, deliver on our commitments and demonstrate our individual and collective expertise. We pride ourselves on promoting a culture that challenges and engages people, and offers opportunities for employees to learn and grow.

Among the ways we work to build and maintain a knowledgeable workforce is our spotlight on personal and professional development. We continuously seek new avenues for supporting and strengthening our employees' knowledge and expertise, whether through tuition reimbursement, assistance for earning professional designations, online courses or in-house training.

We also strive to create a culture in which people know they matter and are part of something important, ensuring the abilities of all employees are used to their fullest potential. As such, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is a key component of our day-to-day business.

  •  
  • Develop partnerships and contracts with suppliers, associations and businesses owned by minorities and women.
  •  
  • Foster diversity awareness and skills at all levels and within all functions.

    Pros

    Offers job development through many company classes.
    Great holiday pay
    Job advancement for some departments

    Cons

    Rolling layoffs (all year), there is always a cloud of doom. It is not if you get laid off, but when.
    Little opportunity for growth in one's department. To advance, you have to seek an opportunity in another department.
