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

    Pros

    I’ve been an agent going on 21 years. I’ve owned multiple agencies & have had the privilege of being a part of many situations giving me great opportunities. Due to a relocation, I’ve decided to step down to a lesser stressful role. This company has been the best decision I’ve made. Management allows me some flexibility with my time & freedom to run my book as I see fit. They have great benefits & paid schooling to further my insurance knowledge! I highly recommend to anyone looking for a new opportunity.

    Cons

    As with all big companies.. there are growing pains. But HUB is always striving to make life better for their employees.

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

    Pros

    I have been working at HUB for just under a year now. My first impressions were great. Now I can see the cracks.

    Cons

    Most of the VPs don't know how to lead an account. They don't understand strategy or how to guide their client. Communication skills are poor. Even though I have a lot of industry experience, I am finding it difficult to be on a team.

    Advice to Management

    Glassdoor gives rating options:

    Career Opportunities: No idea if there are any

    Compensations & Benefits: Salary is good, benefits are average at best.

    Work/Life Balance: Good, but only because I'm seasoned and know how to say no.

    Senior Management: Very nice, very supportive, but might be a little clueless about the talent the have hired to run accounts.

    Culture & Values: They really want to have a good friendly fun culture which is GREAT. However, more focus is needed on operations. It's nice to have a little freedom in how you run your accounts and projects, but there has to be some streamlining. I would ask, what is the HUB way?

    Then glassdoor asks me to rate Marc Cohen. Never met the guy. Couldn't tell you.

    Would I recommend to a friend? Recommend is sounding liking a strong word at this moment.

    6 month business outlook: Probably good, but I wonder if I'll be able to stick it out for another 6 months.

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

    Pros

    I've been with HUB for over 5 years and I love working here. The benefits are great, lots of options to choose from. HUB Gives is an excellent program to help give back to our community. Managers definitely aren't micro-managers, employees are allowed to do their work and are trusted to get it done. Advancement opportunities are available . It's a large company with the feel of a small local agency.

    Cons

    I don't think of it as a con, but HUB is always changing. If you don't deal well with change then HUB won't be a good fit for you.

    Pros

    Recognition and rewarding of top performers. Management values the quality employees.

    Cons

    Very acquisitive so still pulling together an identity and standards, though some of that is intentional to not disrupt successful team members.

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

    Pros

    If you love working in insurance, you'll love HUB. It's a chill place with some nice people. The leadership tries really hard to include everyone. Crunch time is limited to once or twice a year, all other times work schedules are pretty easy and flexible.

    Cons

    It's insurance. If you're good at insurance sales, you can make a lot of money in this industry. If you're not in sales, it's basically just a job (not that exciting, not a ton of growth). However, that works for some people.

    Free coffee, vending machines, no cubicles, flex schedule, and don't have to be on the phone much.

    Unable to work holiday days, lack of communication skills in upper management, segregated departments, underappreciated.

    Need to have more open communication with employees and make them feel appreciated.
