    I have been working at Unum Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Unum is a friendly place, and many employees have been here for 15, 25, 30, and even 40+ years! The pay is very fair, and there's also an annual performance-based incentive. Great benefits, too.

    Cons

    The performance rating system is not a good one. Under the current model, managers must select someone from their team to get a "partially meets" rating, even if ALL of their team members are performing well. To be forced to arbitrarily give an employee a poor review is difficult at best, and downright unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to move away from this review model. Other big-named companies have tried this model and it failed. Wisely, they moved away from it, and I hope that Unum will too. We are losing employees because of this.

    Interview Details

    I applied a little late and the process took about 3 weeks. First interview was a video interview with an HR consultant, consisting mostly of behavioral questions and a short case study. The second interview was a video interview with an HR consultant, the PDP manager, and a current PDP associate, where behavioral questions were asked with more follow up questions and a short case study. The final interview was on site in Chattanooga, where senior leaders took all the interviewees out to dinner with current PDP members. The next day there were 3 interviews with case studies at the end of each.
