    I worked at Unum Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Unum is very good at marketing their products and what they do for the community and employees.

    Cons

    Big company - many people in line for the same career promotion. Too big where it is harder to stand out than a smaller company.

    The performance review process is an anti-selective joke

    Ditch the performance calibration process - it is pulling the whole company down

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, generally provides good work-life balance, some areas provide nice advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Don't count on a raise unless you change job levels, which can be difficult to do. Old software systems don't work together and can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the conservative strategy, but provide more communication to non-management employees.

    I have been working at Unum Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    From what I've witnessed first hand and second hand, this company is better than most when it comes to weighing pros and cons. The benefits are good. Medical, dental, vision, etc. and 401K match up to 5%. The company generally cares about its customers and the employees first behind making a profit. There are opportunities to rise within the company and they make walk-ins feel empowered in upward mobility. People can work from home. You get a decent amount of PTO days from the start. Unum is a big contributor in the community at large, giving to charities, partnering with education, internships, tuition reimbursement, & drives of every kind. The people here also, mostly, get along. We have a lot of smart, talented individuals and the company makes employees do a lot to live the brand - essentially setting the bar really high and measuring every inch to ensure we can strive to such standards. On top of this Unum also offers a decent incentive bonus every year, an above average fitness facility, group clubs, shopping discounts, and other wellness programs. In the end, would I recommend this place to a friend, absolutely.

    Cons

    Company culture is mostly conservative, read not a lot of young people, or only in certain departments. The daily work is not very cool. Sales people are treated like hotshots on account of they generate $$$ for us. Some job roles can be very time consuming. You might be the only one of your team not in the same physical home office. Cubicles everywhere. Gym memberships and classes are grossly too expensive. Technology in general, right down to the generic computers given to us, the outdated browsers we're forced to use, and the systems that run this company are lackluster, and behind the pace of our competitors. We have a real shortage of technology innovation from the top down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read employee complaints and adjust please.

    Enjoyed working for the company as they invest in employees and believes in promoting within. The work dress standards are business casual and I did not experience micromanagement. Employees were given the freedom to complete tasks responsibly and on time.

    Pros

    Great office atmosphere with a lot of experience. I love to travel and the role allows me to do that. In addition, bonuses pay out throughout the year.

    Cons

    The field is often overlooked compared to the home office. In addition, the change in account management has changed and it has been difficult to get some clients on board with that.
