    Pros

    Worked in Miami Campus. Nice environment with some great colleagues. They have flex hours and very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Upper management is not that bright and visionary. Product management system is really poor and there were some unnecessary loss projects going on and continuously got funding because those were the pet projects of some VP's.

    Advice to Management

    Please put some experienced, bright, proper educated and visionary people in the key decision making position. Also, product development and management life cycle needs to be a lot improved.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for if your looking for potential growth. Having your foot in the door basically gives you an opportunity to grow with in 9 months. Plenty of fields and departments to work for. For plenty departments you are able to work from home. The schedules are flexible depending on department. Managers are usually very easy going. Get used to being alone, since this position requires LOTS of individual work! Flexible with days off, great and reasonable pay with yearly or semi annually pay. Training if needed. Very steady job.

    Cons

    A lot of unprofessional people since they do work with recruiting agencies (temp workers). Over the top & stuck up people. Could be difficult to reach your managers.. So your better of EMAILING ALL THE TIME. Research isn't for everyone, it's lots of repetitive work.. For me it's like data entry! You get bored very quick.

    Advice to Management

    Longer training. More communication between managers and employees. Get rid of unprofessional people.

    Pros

    Good benefits and ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Management micro manages and doesn't let you work from home when it's convenient to them. Preferential treatment with new hire employees and veterans are treated like garbage and looked down upon.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to micro manage the new hires rather than the veterans and be more alert rather than oblivious to the new hires' work and all the mistakes being made.

    I worked at Assurant as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of different business areas to gain experience in. Miami campus offers employees lots of different perks and benefits including a gym.

    Cons

    None really, good place to work and offers a good work/life balance. Good teamwork and good co-workers. Kind of far down south location.

    Advice to Management

    Continue offering employees benefits that encourage good work / life balance and maintain employee morale. Maintain communication with employees about happenings at the company.

    Pros

    Atmosphere is very relaxed and not so uptight like a lot of organizations. Great onsight dining which makes it quite convenient for breakfast and lunch.

    Cons

    Salary is very low for the amount of work. The amount of work required is a great deal but you are not compensated for that work properly.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary

    Everyone respects each other, family oriented, feels like what it should be. Unity!

    Challenges are set by ones self, and not understand what being respecful to others. Unfortunately sometimes there are people who do not understand mutual respect and create a little havoc.

    Hiring is important to emphasize respect to others.

    Pros

    The environment has room for growth

    Cons

    As typical with any large company, the office politics are extremely high. People will throw others under the bus to look good and get that next promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word when you have good people and you promise to bring them on as an employee. People have families to feed.
