Former Employee - Underwriter Specialist in Nashville, TN

I worked at CNA part-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great benefits are the main reason to work there. They had a 70% match in their 401k and I got a bonus every year except 2001.

Cons

Produce, produce and produce but always follow their guidelines that change monthly if not daily. That produced a combined ratio of 135 one year. Little time for the family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Production w/o profit = bankruptcy.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Good employee benefits, Health & Welfare, 401k matching contributions, etc... Downtown Chicago office located within walking distance from both CTA and Metra trains.

    Cons

    CNA today is only focused on the Property & Casualty commercial underwriting market. (It used to have a more diversified product portfolio that offered different areas of career growth and development.) Now, all other product lines are being sold or being placed into "run-off". And there is no concern for any impact to your career or employment status.

    New CEO is a former Chubb executive, therefore, all business focus is to compete in the P&C marketplace with growth, revenue, and profitability. Managers lend you no support or career development if you are employed in any capacity outside of this company focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late, you already upset all employees in your non-core operations.

    Competitive salary and good benefits if you negotiate well enough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give more than cost of living increases
