Reviews - What employees say

Company Culture

There is no set culture,, it varies department by department.

Support from management

Ha!

Teamwork

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

Internal Communication

The communications are on a need to know basis

Gender Equality

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

Career Development

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

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling is available but I have not seen a commitment to it

Work-Life Balance

Not really

Company Image

CNA has at times been a great company but it is not right now

Job Security

Who knows - they like you or they don't, if they don't like you, forget it

Handicapped Accessibility

I can comment only on my office which is very accessible

Workplace Safety

Good safety throughout

Challenging Work

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.

Challenging Work

Depends on the project and the day

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better staffing on projects and less management heavy on the staff.

What I like about the company

Excellent immediate team. I enjoy seeing the people I work with. They are like an extension of family. Provided the projects are staffed correctly they can be fun

What I dislike about the company

There is an attitude which basically caters to management where it's always drop what you are doing to solve for xyz. Management needs to have a better expectation and understanding of employees times

Company Culture

department hadpoor communication

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to allow workers to do their jobs and communicate with internal customers.

What I like about the company

The company used to be a great place to work. I enjoyed what I did and upper management was supportive. There was a culture change and limited access to direct contact with customers.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership does not know what is going on and knowledge has left the company.
