Just Another Cog in the Insurance Machine

Underwriter (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

ProsCFC has a well-recognized name in P&C insurance, especially throughout the Midwest region. Its strengths in prior years was their commitment, first & foremost, to agents and insureds, as well as sound underwriting & business practices. Lots of opportunities to advance in the home office in Cincinnati or in any of the field locations. Field reps (e.g. state sales reps or claims handlers) work from their homes in their assigned territories.

ConsEmployees often viewed by middle and upper management as expendable resources, whereas in the past they were seen as valued resources. Sense of belonging/worth for most employees decreasing over the last few years. Perception that employees will be "downsized" more prevalent than in recent years. CFC has gone from a very good regional carrier to a "wannabe" national carrier, losing those small-business attributes that distinguished itself in the early years and becoming very similar to those competitors that were CFC's typical rivals.

Advice to Senior ManagementCFC has gotten away from those core values first established by Jack Schiff Sr. half a century ago. Were he still alive today I believe he'd be embarrassed and upset at the direction the company has taken in the last decade. The company has mutated from an organization steeped in traditional values (honesty, trustworthiness, personal and professional integrity) to one in which the pursuit of profit apparently is valued above all other objectives. A common concern voiced by many agents is that "its not the same company it was ten years, or even five years ago". Loyalty from agents, insureds, and employees is declining at a steady rate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bad place to work

    Underwriter (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    I worked at Cincinnati Financial

    Pros: It is easy to get in the door as an insurance… Cons: The training program is obsolete and outdated.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. … Advice to Senior Management: Upgrade your technology and training modules to be more in line with the insurance… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
