I worked at Cincinnati Financial

Pros

It is easy to get in the door as an insurance professional. No potential to be moved/transferrerd if you enjoy Cincinnati.

Cons

The training program is obsolete and outdated. The underwriters are greatly mismanaged and lack the necessary talent/skills to propely underwrite and negotiate accounts. The pay is on the low end of the insurance scale. You are not compensated for performance but for tenure, no matter how skilled/productive you are as an employee. The morale of the entire company is the most negative I have been around possible. Very few who work in the home office setting are very happy to be employed by CINF. The technology utilized for analysis is vastly underwhelming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upgrade your technology and training modules to be more in line with the insurance inustry. Work to improve the employees morale to increase workers enjoyment and efficiency.

    I have been working at Cincinnati Financial full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Matching 401K up to 6%, decent benefits, soup and salad in cafeteria....whoo hoo!

    Cons

    Terrible corporate culture, incompetent managers in managing talent....brown nosers will love! Overworked, sense of exasperation pervasive throughout company....Commercial, Personal, Field, Claims. Nepotism, children of independent agents hired frequently and get away with murder, so knowing people in high places will get you farther. Seen some egregious things done by some of these people and never fired. Not a woman, but do not favor women still despite losing lawsuit in past for discrimination. Frequently hire managers in positions who are pathologically poor in relating to people and more suited to generate reports and work with details. Well known to pay lower historically and introduced a new review system designed to curb pay more. Used to be family oriented and now bottom lines is accountability to shareholders. Very evident trying to shed higher priced experienced workers for low priced inexperienced substitutes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is so poor and word will get out. At some point you will reap the cost for the direction the company has taken. Overpaying Senior Executives now only serves to widen the gap of discontent which seems to be a microcosm of corporate culture, and CFC used to be above that. Too few people have control now and Senior salaries have become bloated.
