    Nice company, nice people, some shenanigans

    Good organization to grow in. Opportunities abound

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Miami, FL

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementShed the bureaucracy

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Could be better!

    Claims Examiner (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsI 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.

    ConsHard 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a place I would ever work at again

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsI cannot think of any positives of working at this place.

    ConsAntiquated ways. Lots of nepotism. Management did not listen to employees and treated their employees poorly. You could hear yelling from certain manager's offices.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    It use to be a great company to work for, but now you're just a #.

    Manager Position (Former Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsThey use to care about your development. I worked there for several years & moved up the ranks. Some departments still offer that real opportunity for growth.

    Great company benefits. Company is always evolving, diversifying product lines, or reinventing itself.

    ConsLots of layoffs during the last few years, but they keep it from the news by doing them dept by dept, so it doesn't look like a massive layoff. New management doesn't care about employees, it's all about the business and keeping stock #'s up. No work/life balance, it's all about doing more with less people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you ask employees for input, really keep an open mind & keep it confidential. It seems when you open up to management with real issues, they later use that info against you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Used to be a great place.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Miami, FL

    ProsOnly thing I can say that is a Pro is they are in the best city Miami.

    ConsLack basic compassion for their employees. Lay off at a drop of a hat no upward mobility unless you're a brown nose.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
