I have been working at CNA full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

A good size company with lots of room for growth if you reside or are willing to relocate to Chicago or the other Service Centers..Denver CO, Reading PA

Cons

Your manager can break or make you…you’ll have to suck-up a lot!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top-heavy organization. Too many layers of management. It feels like front line managers’ authority is limited to approving time cards.

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

    Pros

    Great Chicago location
    Decent benefits (but getting less good)
    On site fitness facility
    It's a job

    Cons

    Very top heavy hierarchy with no genuine leadership. CEO Motomed's expense "controls" focus on direct costs only and ignore indirect ones, such as outsourcing of IT and decentralization of Specialty Lines underwriting. First line management is generally knowledgeable but ineffective due to CYA mentality. There is no incentive to do more than the minimum. Employes are encouraged to "think outside the box" but penalties are huge for being wrong. There is no loyalty anywhere in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Obviously, eliminate layers on senior management. HUGE culture change needed but will take years to have positive effect.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
