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

    Pros

    Strong sense of ownership and accountability in your role; Supportive leadership; Team performance bonuses (we are all in this together); Over 450 agencies locally run but organically united - this makes HUB International incredibly flexible and gives this insurance broker unique bargaining power with insurance carriers and third party services on behalf of the employer groups it serves.

    Cons

    Rapid and constant growth has its challenges, but they are absolutely worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to fold in the new acquisitions into one unified organism that hums, much like folding unique ingredients into one superior dish, or adding musical notes to create a symphony.

    Pros

    This is a good company in the sense you feel as if you are part of a smaller organization although HUB is a large company. You feel valued as an employee. Also HUB recently implemented dress for your day, so it's clear the company continues to work to provide more than the standard benefits.

    Cons

    The workload may be unbalanced due to various reasons.

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

    Pros

    Work / life balance is excellent. Management style is supportive and encourages individual & team growth. Employee recognition is high which helps to keep employees motivated. The environment is very positive as a whole and HUB Mid-America does an excellent job of providing perks for employees like chair massages, fun events & a flexible summer schedule for hourly employees. The benefits and PTO are great, as well.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of acquisitions of brokerage firms it can feel a bit biased every now and then. Corporate headquarters and managements choose to use employee floating holidays so that employees will be off work for two days 4th of July and 2 days for Christmas. It would be nice to be able to use the floating holidays "given" along with other PTO and HUB just make the 2 days for those holidays standard holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Consider adjusting floating holidays so that employees feel they are getting to use them. Continue open door policy and supportive conflict resolutions when needed.

    I worked at HUB International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved my team members, had the ability to work remote (with prior permission) if I needed it.

    Cons

    Managers don't know how to manage other people, wants to be friend before boss
    Needs someone below them to manage team, so that they can handle speaking engagements and clients
    Manager did not like when sick time is requested; would ask when I would be back when I was admitted to hospital instead of asking how I was
    Felt very much like an outsider, even though I worked there for years

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team and refrain from being defensive; don't wait until team is stressed out crying at our desks to do something. Boss first, and don't play favorites.
