I worked at CNA part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits are the main reason to work there. They had a 70% match in their 401k and I got a bonus every year except 2001.

Cons

Produce, produce and produce but always follow their guidelines that change monthly if not daily. That produced a combined ratio of 135 one year. Little time for the family.

Advice to Management

Production w/o profit = bankruptcy.

    I have been working at CNA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are competitive. The company is in growth mode and continually looking for ways to win in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Upper management is so focused on growing the bottom line and implementing their strategy of becoming a sales-driven culture that they continually lose sight of the needs of employees. Management pays lip-service to caring about a "work-life balance", but their actions show otherwise. Morale continues to decline. Employees take an employee survey annually, but the employees don't take it seriously because there is no evidence that upper management takes it seriously.

    Advice to Management

    You will never meet your goals for this company until you improve employee morale.

    I worked at CNA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, and decent benefits for employees.

    Cons

    Management does not cultivate or develop fresh employees. The culture is extremely cut-throat and polarized between tenured employees and new-comers. There is no effort to promote teamwork and a collaborative environment.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be either re-trained or removed.
