Pros

Finding a large company that offers benefits in Springfield Ohio is a difficult feat, but Assurant is a nice place to gain experience in an office setting if you do not have any. They also offer a lot of free training courses that you can take through the company, and they also have very felxible scheduling.

Cons

If start at Assurant at Entry Level, be prepared to stay there. They rarely, if ever, promote from with in. However, if you enter in as management, you may have a better chance. Also, there were many incentive prograams available when I first started in 2005, but as the years progressed they slowly did away with all of them, as well as changed the company's health insurance package. They still expected a large amount of overtime, but no longer made the idea of all that work appealing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you have a person on your team that does exceptionally well, why would you think they would not do exceptional well in a higher position? Don't be afraid to move them forward, especially if your only concern is replacing them from their current position.

    Pros

    Great place to get your foot in the door of corporate America.

    Cons

    They will criticize you to death and then offer very little training. You'll be fired before you ever get a chance to learn the industry. UNIONIZE ASAP

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother, you won't listen anyway, will you? Fight for your employees instead of just passing the buck.
