    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.

    Pros

    If you are a top performer, HQ is doing the work to create a strong brand and provide the resources for you to reach new heights.

    Cons

    * It's a sales organization. If you're not in sales, you're not as valued.
    * If you aren't already a high performing broker with a strong network, this might not be the place for you.

    I have been working at HUB International full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, occasional catered lunches, large company that could provide room for growth.

    Cons

    Negative environment, at least in my office. Gossip, back stabbing, no managerial support or follow through on development.

    Advice to Management

    To place the right candidates in management roles that will know how to handle an office environment and have experience. And we'll listen to their employees and support them and make time for them. That will actually know how to grow and develop their employees.

    Pros

    There are some great people who work here. Unfortunately, their talents are often misused or ignored entirely.

    Cons

    The dollar is sacred at the expense of everything else. Those with shares in the company are only interested in maximizing their gains. They will spin a tale to say otherwise, but it will not take long to notice what is the number one priority. Until recently the core values of the company made up the acronym EBITDA...and that was on purpose. After many complaints, they dropped a couple of the values so it no longer does this, but that did not change the culture at all.

    Leadership is comprised of sales professionals who may be great at sales, but are lacking in leadership skills. Everything about this company points that sales is all that matters. If you are in sales, then this may be the company for you. If you are not in sales, you are better served to look elsewhere.

    If you are not in sales there is not a lot of opportunity for growth. This is a well known issue and has never been addressed. There is definitely a ceiling.

    Finally, if you are a minority and want to advance your career, this is not the company for you. First, the majority of the company is white and certainly in key leadership roles. Second, woman outnumber the men in lower positions, but the ratio is not evident in leadership. The company is also old. If you are young and ambitious and come to this organization, then be prepared to be disappointed. So if you are an old white male, you have a future with this company.

    ...and one little extra. For an insurance broker it is amazing how horrible the benefits are at this company. They spin it that it is the best, but in reality they would rather line the coffers of the elite than invest the money earned in their people.

    Advice to Management

    Although this would probably fall on deaf ears, try reading a book on leadership and then apply the lessons learned. Sales skills are not leadership skills - learn to tell the difference.
