    Pros

    Strong organization with sufficient support for sales, marketing and service. Regions have enough independence to respond to customer needs and market trends.

    Cons

    HUB regions have grown very large. It is difficult to coordinate on a national level without losing regional independence.

    Advice to Management

    Look for additional opportunities to promote from within the organization. Mid- level leaders in could benefit other regions when opportunities within their own region are limited.

    I worked at HUB International

    Pros

    I would say the Pros about working at Hub International was definitely the professional and diverse atmosphere.

    Cons

    The one big Con about working at Hub International was that it was only a temporary assignment.

    Advice to Management

    I am the type of person who looks at everything with a positive attitude and with that being said I would say I learned a lot from the management at Hub International and the only word of advise is keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Friendly, dynamic, open and warm. Plenty of learning opportunities. Insurance industry is retiring so plenty of room for growth and advancement.

    Cons

    Pay is relatively low, technology is at best out of date. They prefer some departments to others, some people get more benefits (show up late, leave early) in other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Please bear in mind that we have families and things we need with our salaries. Underpaying us and overworking us is the reason that we are short staffed. We should reward the folks who stick around.

    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.

    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.
