    Pros

    Excellent attention to work life balance on a corporate level (depends on your manager and what department you work for). Great medical, dental and vision benefits, including decent 401k matching, and ability to purchase Unum's voluntary benefits products at a good price such as Group Critical Illness insurance, long term care insurance, etc. 10,000 employees worldwide to network with.

    Cons

    Corporate red tape as at any large company.

    Pros

    1. They are an industry leader in their business
    2. Very good working culture - people are very good to each other
    3. Operational improvements have been very significant over the last several years. Along with strong financial position, they are well positioned when the economy improves.
    4. Benefits are very good, while salaries are market average.
    5. Long tenures and they like to promote from within.

    Cons

    Good work will be recognized, but it's an insurance company, so it's not flashy.

    Pros

    Very generous paid time off benefits

    Cons

    Constant reorganization which causes major disruption and inefficiency

    Advice to Management

    Do not reorganize just for the sake of reorganizing. Think though how reorganization can cause disruption and inefficiency to the organization

    Pros

    comp program is good. great culture.

    Cons

    senior leadership is long standing, very little opportunity to move up linearly. a lot of old ideas "because that's the way we've always done it"

    Advice to Management

    stop with the wink wink nudge nudge crap. be straight forward with your managers.

    Pros

    Unum has a really great program that if you are a Customer Service Specialist or other selected positions, within a timeframe, you will be allowed to work from home. This is a win win situation for the Employee and the Employer. This program definately saves a lot of money for all involved.

    Cons

    The Cons of working for Unum are once in the Contact Center, trained and doing nice job at it, advancement within the Company seems a little less attainable.

    Advice to Management

    Personally, my Manager is the most honest and up front person any Employee could ever ask for. This person is always on the top of their agenda, always immediately returns emails regardless of their workload. All in all, Management at Unum that I have come in contact with have been very helpful and friendly.
