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

    Good location, Work/Life balance, Good brand, paid time off ok, enjoyed co-workers

    Cons

    No transparency or collaboration with communication
    Poor middle and upper management leadership
    Business strategy and vision not clearly defined
    Pay for work. Despite your hard work and effort you never recieve any type of promotion or raise. Performance goals are constantly changed making them unattainable.
    Human resources organization is never available or never stays abreast or resolve issues. They say open door policy but usually your concerns are left at the door and never followed-up on.
    Many lay-offs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to improve communication and empower associates to make decisions. Employees have no autonomy and are frequently excluded in decision making.

    Listen to employees. Enforce communication and collaboration not just a senior level but at middle management levels. Make managers more accountable for their performance and how they communicate to employees. No development track or opportunities. Get Human Resources personnel that wants to be there

    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.
