    I worked at Assurant full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Shed the bureaucracy

    Pros

    I like the diversity and family-like environment. The building is created to make life easier, there is a gym, day care and food court on site.

    Cons

    Hard to move up within the same department, most transfer most of the time. Clients get everything they want even if it badly affects Assurant's employees.
