    Pros

    Unum's leadership development program is the best in the industry. The program gives young adults exposure to senior leader mentorship and offers an indepth tour around the company. Associates complete 3 rotations in different areas of the corporation for 12-18 months each. Upon program completion, placement into a director level role is the norm.

    Cons

    Rotations sometimes require temporary relocation among company headquarters. While a great opportunity, this can be difficult for colleagues with spouses or young families.

    Pros

    Terrific company for those looking for a career and significant growth opportunity. Promotions are based on job performance as opposed to politics and senior level management is very approachable. Managers spend an extraordinary amount of time developing their team members for future positions. Unum stresses a great work-life balance and backs it up by offering a generous amount of vacation time. Unum is a company with high moral values and they truly practice what they preach.

    Cons

    It takes a while to feel as though you are really contributing to the organization as most jobs require time to adjust to.

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits at Unum are top-notch as many other reviewers have reported. However, I've found that it is the people at Unum (managers or otherwise) that make the experience at Unum great. The people I've met thus far are well grounded in reality. They will not forget that you are a person and not a machine. The Paid Time Off is incredible and the work environment is busy but supportive. It is easy to make friends, laugh with coworkers and still be productive.

    Cons

    Not all organizations within Unum are constantly advancing or coming up with innovative ideas. However, an insurance company does not need to be a cutting edge technology company. Projects may take longer than they should to complete in some organizations because there are many day-to-day tasks that trump special projects. This really isn't a con because there are parts of the business that just need to work. But if you are looking for rapid innovation don't join sectors that are about the day-to-day grind. Look for groups at Unum that develop strategy.

    Advice to Management

    I have no complaints about the managers I've interacted with. Almost all are friendly or at least reasonable. There is plenty of communication between managers and direct reports.

    Pros

    Unum has a genuine regard for their customers. The customer focused is highlighted throughout the company and is examplified by upper management. Each employee has a developmental plan that is reviewed and encouraged by managers. Unum has a great work environment with strong company values around family.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, many positions are monotonous. However, there is much opportunity to grow in your career and switch positions which helps mitigate this problem.

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