    I have been working at Assurant as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Assurant is a solid international company with four streams of business and is a Fortune 500 company. The company culture is fun, communicative and encourages teamwork.

    Cons

    During my six month internship I have watched Assurant reduce staff, some willingly, most not. They're trimming the tenured employees/managers and leaving people with far less experience and knowledge running the business. This concerns me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so quick to reduce expenses at the cost of experienced leadership. Those left behind are struggling and feeling quite insecure.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a number of wonderful things about Assurant. People work hard and care a great deal about what they deliver. They are often willing to work long hours to get things done. In general, the value of common decency and common sense are up held.

    Cons

    People want to do the right thing and contribute, however, poor decision making frameworks and internal processes don't enable people. It can take a LONG time to get decisions made, especcially when working across all lines of business. Highly matrixed organization w little to /no clear ownership of key business decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are times when consensus is not the answer. Senior Leaders should be willing to take ownership of key decisions even when not all are in agreement - espeicially if it is important to the long term health of the company,

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Business casual dress with easy work tasks. Get to listen to music while working. Possibility of moving to other branches of the company.

    Cons

    Unprofessional management; if you want to move up you have to participate in brown nosing. Unorganized processes, illogical production tracking, disastrous internal organizational communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being so greedy and focus on efficiency. Higher pay will result in better employees/performance. Reward people based on their performance instead of tenure. Picking favorites based on personal emotional gratification is counter productive to creating a competitive and profitable business.
