    Pros

    Positive work environment, respectful culture, strong commitment to customer experience. We've grown a lot over the last few years and have gone through signficant, yet positive changes.

    Cons

    we're lucky to work for such a strong company. Lots of change, which can be challenging, but we're all in it togther.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and thank you for what you do.

    I have been working at Unum Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Plenty of paid time off, good culture, opportunities for advancement for creative and driven employees, a budding movement toward openness and more modern workspaces, and superior work/life balance opportunities (work from home and alternative schedules)

    Cons

    Behind much of the industry technologically (way too many applications), redundant processes, hit-or-miss leadership with little accountability for devastating errors in many departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to pursue making Unum the technology leader in the disability industry, focus attention on accountability and meaningful coaching for leadership--both new and old--as much as you've focused on coaching for individual contributors, review ongoing projects and initiatives holistically to reduce redundancy--it will save you money!
