Pros

Many intellectually challenging ideas and issues to be dealt with. Efforts made to share information with employees. The location is very nice.

Cons

Cost cutting to the extreme; made for an unpleasant atmosphere. Several Sr. Managers did not stop working, causing those below them to feel poorly for not being interested in late meetings and so forth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build from within.

    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.

    CNA used to be so so much more. Sad.

    Pros

    good PTO, especially after 5, 10, 20 years (but who stays this long?)
    good 401K match
    37.5 hours per week does not really ever happen, but it's a nice guideline

    Cons

    incompetent senior managment
    hostile work atmosphere
    people "disappearing" despite of supposed "no layoffs" in actuarial
    absurd bonus structure and "performance requirements" changes
    business travel eliminated (unless you want to pay for it out of your own pocket)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    everyone is now earning less to save the company money, how about the CEO reduces his $10M pay, and how about all executives take a paycut...
    We would like to know that when you are talking about lowering the expense ratio, you really mean it.
