CNA – Why Work For Us?


For more than a century, CNA has helped employees define their path to success – personalized careers built on a legacy of knowledgeable mentors, ongoing development and controlled risk taking. It’s a culture of performance and distinction unlike any other, and one that inspires collective success. Join us, and let’s build the future together.

At CNA, our customers are at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to earn their trust, deliver on our commitments and demonstrate our individual and collective expertise. We pride ourselves on promoting a culture that challenges and engages people, and offers opportunities for employees to learn and grow.

Among the ways we work to build and maintain a knowledgeable workforce is our spotlight on personal and professional development. We continuously seek new avenues for supporting and strengthening our employees' knowledge and expertise, whether through tuition reimbursement, assistance for earning professional designations, online courses or in-house training.

We also strive to create a culture in which people know they matter and are part of something important, ensuring the abilities of all employees are used to their fullest potential. As such, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is a key component of our day-to-day business.


Here are just a few of the things we do:

  • Develop partnerships and contracts with suppliers, associations and businesses owned by minorities and women.
  • Foster diversity awareness and skills at all levels and within all functions.
  • Explore new and diverse markets, customers and distribution channels for CNA products and services.
  • Understand global cultures, customers' needs and business practices, and develop strategies to support them.
  • Partner with and invest in the diverse communities where we do business.
  • Promote an environment of acceptance and inclusion.

CNA knows the importance of having the tools you need to expand your expertise and develop your career. That's why we offer an array of career planning tools and resources designed to help you understand what you need to be effective in your role and the career path possibilities available to you.

These resources work in concert with formal learning, collaboration, knowledge sharing and on-the-job development to provide wide-ranging developmental opportunities. 

Wherever you are in your career, CNA has programs to further your development. As a new employee, you may have access to courses and training that will help you hit the ground running. After you've mastered the basics, you can choose from hundreds of in-house and external resources to refine your knowledge and continue to develop. If you step into a management role, you will be able to hone your leadership skills through a special program.

We take pride in measuring our success not only by our business results, but by our commitment to productively serve the diverse communities where our employees work and where CNA does business. This service takes many forms, including our environmentally friendly practices and coverages, our charitable giving and employee volunteerism, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Don’t Be Fooled by Employment Fraud 

Fraudulent employment offers are frequently made by people claiming to be employees or representatives of various companies. All CNA job-related communications are always sent from an official CNA email ID (@cna.com). CNA will never ask a job applicant for banking information and will never communicate with a job applicant by text messaging (SMS). If you suspect a fake offer letter, report it immediately to your local police or consumer fraud reporting at ftc.gov.

    I have been working at CNA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Truly feel a sense of collaboration among cross departmental teams to deliver on the organizations goal to be externally focused while offering a superior experience.

    I experience a drive toward inclusion of all employees and a HR department that works to provide the best work life balance it can offer.

    Cons

    The organization has been transitioning executive leadership for the past two years and I get a sense will continue to transition in the coming year which can have a paralyzing effect on the workforce in terms of high level focus with enough detail to act upon.

    Advice to Management

    Transparent communication from executive leadership down to managers to effectively set expectation and ease unwarranted transition rumors.
