    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

    Pros

    I haven't been able to find out as they won't contact individuals that apply via their website. They just post positions only to comply with their own company rules but they only use agenccies to hire employees

    Cons

    Haven't been able to find out what the good things of this company are since they will not call individuals that apply via their website they would only use agencies in order to get people interviewed

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to people that want to work in your company if you post a position in somebody applies given the opportunity to be interviewed if not don't post anything on the website and go straight to agencies in order to get people interviewed in your company

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

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Seek additional opportunities to acquire leadership skills to instruct your employees

    Pros

    Most coworkers are very nice to work with. Nice life/work balance. Flexible HR policies.

    Cons

    Worked there for over 10 years. Poor training & employee growth; once you hit a certain level you reach a "glass ceiling" depending on who you know and whose shoulders you're rubbing, which creates a back-stabbing culture among coworkers with the same goals. You do an adequate job and you get rewarded, you do a good/great job, and you get taxed with more work/responsibility and no promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Don't dangle the "promotion" carrot to your employees, unless you have a clear career advancement path. Don't say the company is not about politics and "circle of friends" when it clearly is.

    Pros

    There's room to grow if you can get past some of the barriers. Many of the newer leadership accept and embrace change.

    Cons

    Monolithic draconian IT team. There are still remnants of older management with closed perspectives.

    Advice to Management

    Shed the bureaucracy
