    I have been working at HUB International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hub offers a friendly place to learn and grow. They provide avenues to exceed and advance with support staff and supervisors who want you to be successful. The work atmosphere has been a place of enjoyment but challenges me to push myself in areas I didn't think would be a good fit.

    Cons

    So far I haven't seen very many cons to this company. The transition to HUB had a few hiccups and communication gaps, but people seem to be willing to step in and try to resolve things as soon as possible once addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open, more details the better. Also make your staff feel appreciated. Recognize when people are going above and beyond. Slow down and get to know your team.

    I have been working at HUB International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Different locations to work from, free parking, co-worker friendships, good insurance companies, nice clients, no micromanaging, fun annual holiday party.

    Cons

    Clueless, unprofessional leadership. Leaders do not know how to lead, they don't know what they're doing. Poor staffing for the insane workload. Low morale due to constant increases in work without salary increases & more help. Terrible bonuses. Too much favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your staff & stop ignoring them. Pay hardworking staff and they will take care of your clients. They treat clients as you treat them! Stop adding more work and unnecessary projects. Be honest & be fair. Stop ignoring staff requests for fair compensation because they know what's going on. Treat all staff equally. Make balanced workloads & teams. Stop the favoritism. Stop managers from socializing with their subordinates.

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

    Pros

    Initial compensation was good for my position.

    Cons

    The team I worked with was horrible and threw everyone under the bus constantly. If someone made a mistake they let them go instead of allowing that person to work through any issues and find a common ground. Temps, Admins, Full-time associates, didn't matter. If you messed up or they didn't like you, you were gone. Technology was beyond out dated as almost everyone still worked on desktop computers! and the laptops were 10 years old easily. Office culture was terrible, very quiet and most people keep to themselves and seem like they can't wait to get out of there.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get with the times, hire some younger talent and get up to date with your technology. There are local brokers that can run circles around you in this area. For new employees coming on board come up with a training program that makes sense and gives someone the chance to prove themselves. Managers needs to hold senior level associates accountable for their actions and training.

    Pros

    Great 401K and Benefits. They match HSA contributions and family benefits plan out of pocket was less than 200 a month in 2011 with 4K deductible. Management for the most part is in tune with staff. If you are part of an acquisition they take care of you.

    Cons

    Some staff turnover. This is typical of a large agency that purchases other agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Great place to work!
