- CNA Financial05.Apr 2019
There is no set culture,, it varies department by department.
Support from management
It can be collborative sometimes but a very top down organization
Freedom to work independently
There is a lot of second guessing from senior management
The communications are on a need to know basis
They are ok with supporting women but I have seen better
Attitude towards older colleagues
The company skews older but there is nothing supportive or unsupportive towards the demographic
CNA is a club, you do well if you ware in with the in crowd
Overall compensation for your work
The bonuses are good and the 401k is phenomonal
Office / Work Environment
I detest the open office environment
Recycling is available but I have not seen a commitment to it
CNA has at times been a great company but it is not right now
Who knows - they like you or they don't, if they don't like you, forget it
I can comment only on my office which is very accessible
Good safety throughout
My work was intellectually challenging and I thrive on that.
Inclusive / Diverse
Any thought that does not come from above is not welcome
Suggestions for improvement
- They need to overhaul the executive suites. As long as the current group is in charge, CNA will be a very unhealthy company.
What I like about the company
There are a lot of good people, the bonuses are traditionally generous and the 401k is unmatched.
What I dislike about the company
The management team is weak. They predominantly come from one company that was acquired and they have chips on their shoulders. They want everything to be as it was at their old place before the acquisition. There is no creativity and no diversity of thought in senior management.
