    I worked at CNA

    Pros

    Benefits and profit sharing, not much else. Work life balance is fine, everyone leaves by 4 but no commitment from employees as senior leaders do not support them.

    Cons

    Terrible environment. Huge turnover both voluntary and involuntary. Incompetent CEO. Heard he is finally on the way out but probably too late. No staff engagement.

    I worked at CNA

    Pros

    It was a small enough company that you were able to get to know a lot of the people that worked there. Associates worked hard, but it was a great work environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes the US involvement was a tough pill to swallow. Much like other US parent organizations, they don't understand Canada and they make it difficult to carry out Cdn practices. etc.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at CNA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Long history and a broad reach for broker customers. Some great colleagues.

    Cons

    Newer Canadian EO is devoid of EQ and comes across as socially inept in this regard. This shortcoming manifests in ways that emasculate his direct reports and at times his own customers. Draconian management style.

    Advice to Management

    It's 2016. Start giving some serious consideration to the emotional cultural void of the organization created by the leader's complete incompetence regarding emotional intelligence.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and take action when an employee shows concerns over his or her work or how they are treated.
