    I worked at Assurity Life Insurance Company as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nice facilities with software developer essentials (nice chairs, standing desks, up to date hardware).
    Leadership is easy to talk to, and departmental communication and bonding is encouraged.
    Process for new-hires is very streamlined, there isn't any downtime waiting for a computer or credentials.
    On site cafeteria is really nice, and there is a large bank of microwaves for bringing lunch.

    Cons

    Seniority and title are highly attributed, so despite communication being encouraged, it can be hard to see results.
    Agile methodology verges on cargo cult programming (estimation as a time-clock, lack of documented coding standards, UI design is performed by management and customers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally keep up the good work, Assurity seems to be a successful company that treats their employees well and invests in their education/training. Creating a dev-ops team, and getting the separate development teams to collaborate on a unified process would do wonders for project success rate, and developer morale.

    I have been working at Assurity Life Insurance Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The new building is nice other than the elevators which do not always function properly. The security guards are nice. It's nice to park for free in the parking garage. Building and grounds guy, Rex, is awesome and hilarious.

    Cons

    Very poor selection of and communication (both in level of skill of communication and effort made to communicate) by supervisors and management. Associates are not trusted to eat foods at their desks that are warm or require utensils, but eating donuts and cupcakes with your hands is ok, which probably attributes to the lack of use of the high-tech standing desks that remain in the seated position. Open door policy is poorly executed if followed at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want adults to do quality work for you, then trust and treat your associates as adults who do quality work. Also, you need to update the dress code and move to casual dress as other companies in the industry have done. The studies that were done showing that people work better when they're dressed up are outdated. Cater to the generation that you want/is working for you.
