Disappointed in outsourcing

Pros

Salary is very good, benefits are fantastic, work life balance is good, you are able to work from home if needed, overall the benefits are great.

Cons

CNA is moving to a "managed services" model and therefore outsourcing the entire IT department. Hundreds of people are losing their jobs, and while they wait for their time to run out must train the people taking over their jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I expect that the managed services model will fail and in a few years CNA will be searching for employees to come back to the IT department.

    Pros

    the company seems to be moving in the right direction. the new leadership team in chicago is growing the business by focusing on our strengths and our superior customer service. the company is doing its part to ensure that its employees have in place the support they need to make the customer experience the best it can be.
    management in my department is extremely understand of the work to life balance and they give lots of time off and are very good about allowing people to work remotely from home.

    Cons

    the computer systems are quite dated, especially our internal financial systems. nonetheless, they do perform the functions intended, and they are constantly updating the systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to do the good job you're doing. we feel very confident about the direction in which you're taking the company.
    continue to upgrade computer systems.

    Pros

    CNA provides ample time to study for actuarial exams. It provides a good work life/balance. The amount of vacation time is good.

    Cons

    The environment at CNA is becoming increasingly competitive and employees are being more intensely scrutinized. Changes occur frequently to increase the amount of performance evaluation. There are opportunities to help with recruiting and other functions outside of your primary job roles, but it seems like those opportunities are by invitation only. There is a certain amount of secrecy around how decisions are made. Employee development is not emphasized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make developmental opportunities more transparent to all employees not just employees above a certain level. Reduce the amount and length of performance evaluation.
