Does anyone have any insight on if there is a better company to grow your career in insurance in? I currently work at Chubb but I see a lot of “movement” to other companies for various reasons within the company. In the NJ area is this the best option to stick with for commercial/ reinsurance, or is better to switch every couple years to companies like Munich Re, CNA, NJM, ect. ? For reference: I have 2 years experience as a UA/UW, have obtained my CPCU, and feel under paid. Thank you!

Great work life balance, great divisional and regional management, focus on employees, good benefits
Not many - higher workload than other carriers, but much better support from management and operations than other carriers as well

Work from home 4 days in office one. Good benefits and salary is negotiable upon start.
Very tedious and repetitive. Can become over worked and overwhelmed quickly. You will burn out in this industry.

No pension and blindsided lay offs Not what you know sometimes but who you know

The working environment is collegial and there is a large support system in place - the "jerk" ratio, while not non-existent, is pretty low here. The base compensation is also generally fair and the benefits are good. There is a keen emphasis on employee development and many opportunities to develop and execute an employee development plan.
The thing you need to understand about CNA is that most (~93%) of the stock is owned by Loews Corporation and the majority of the board seats are occupied by Loews people. While this means the stock price doesn't fluctuate very much, Loews pulls a gargantuan amount of money out of the company every year. This was even moreso true during COVID when Loews's other businesses (mainly hotels) were in the toilet, so they declared a massive "special dividend" that was basically an asset redistribution away from CNA. Unfortunately, while it gets bled dry by its parent, the company has become curmudgeonly cheap. The new claim leadership is so miserly, it is impossible to get any investment, in people or otherwise, approved, because of expense ratio pressures. The present claim leadership is also very administrative, rather than technically, focused. Unfortunately technical excellence too often falls to the wayside in all the bean counting that goes on.7

Overall good benefits and culture, opportunities for growth are available
Health insurance premiums are high, especially for a HDHCP. CNA also needs to invest more in resources to support it's employees productivity.
- 5.0Oct 6, 2023Underwriting Consulting DirectorCurrent Employee
The company provides many opportunities for growth. Good middle management. Good bonuses and 401k match.
Top level management turnover. Pressure to hit growth goals. Support systems(rating, claims, reports, etc)

Old tech, politics at work, too many people join and leave1

Benefits are standard Genourous match to 401k total of 17% of salary with your 6% match Health insurance is your typical high deductible plan Compensation is standard bonus is okay.
The management team's behavior is concerning as they frequently fail to take responsibility for their actions, resulting in an unprofessional work environment. The company culture can sometimes feel exclusionary, with evidence of favoritism towards certain employees. Political correctness is not a priority, and the "good ol boy" atmosphere can create discomfort for some team members. In addition, the use of outdated Key Performance Indicator (KPI) systems and the promotion of individuals who lack fundamental leadership skills is alarming. Employees are unfairly reprimanded for issues outside of their control, and certain managers have adopted a leadership style that relies on intimidation tactics, rather than positive reinforcement.8
