    Pros

    Assurant is a company where you are able to work and grow. Having a company where they help you improve yourself is important. The employees at Assurant are some of the NICEST and hardworking individuals you will find.

    Cons

    With the downsizing of staff, the workload of many employees went above and beyond what any normal company would expect. You can't expect to have good moral in the office when you are not being appreciated for the many extra hours worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be don't ask your employees for there input unless you are willing to listen and learn from this advice. Please, please, don't take it out on your employee when they tell you something you don't want to hear(especially if you asked) Appreciate your staff!!
