    Pros

    Great work life balance and atmosphere.
    Huge growth and expansion as a company.
    The people at Hub are all great to work with.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a disconnect throughout departments.
    Personal growth in the company requires connections, as politics play a huge role in advancement.

    Working for HUB International can be a bit hectic a times due to the down time because of the many computer issues that are happening each day. Salary increases are below the norm and not what is expected of agood company.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, tuition reimbursement, lunch recognition.

    Cons

    Medical benefits suck. Most employees are under their spouses' medical insurance because Hub's medical insurance is a nightmare, it's not worth it. You'll just work to pay your medical bills.
    Salaries are not competitive. CEO and top managers make the real money, everyone else gets a misery, and then they have the nerve to ask employees to donate for a cause. No holiday bonus, instead a miserable $25 gift card.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a competitive salary to your employees. Ask the CEO's and top management to donate for the good causes, we don't make enough money here.
    Provide holiday bonus, the $25 gift card is degrading and everyone is upset about it.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the clients I worked for and many of the Producers at HUB.

    Cons

    Highly unorganized environment for such a large broker; little or no career development available; poor work environment marred by intensively negative office "politics", list of inefficiencies in client service facing workflows too great too list! Little to no appreciation for loyal employees that refrain from complaints over heavy workloads and backlogs.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't even know where to begin....

    Good co to work for but cheap. Pay is low compare to other agencies around. People are leaving to work for a competitor.
