Pros

Stock Purchase plan and 401K are great benefits
Some really great fellow employees are still employed there

Cons

HR feedback dictates how far you go. Play the game, the further you go. Dont play, dont go any further. Upper management has little engagement with the actual workers. Some upper managers have no clue on what is actually going on in the business.....placed there due to "knowing someone higher up" is common practice.
Most currently, they have started an internal "hit list" of those employees that they (and HR) deem to be not capable. Assessment made not on what they do, but future potential. Direct managers are FORCED to work on plans to get them out the door, even though they may think there is potential with the right direction.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware of what is really going in...you will or are loosing some really good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open social media sites to employees. Don't be so concerend about negative press - it's out there anyway. Allow employees to take advantage of the benefits that social media has to offer.

    Pros

    Flexibility, Benefits, People, Experience
    Assurant provides a fun, challenging and exciting environment.

    Cons

    Senior Management does not listen very well to feedback and information provided, making things very difficult in some situations. Sometimes there seems to be too much internal politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If your employees are performing well, don't try to come up with something just to have a topic to add for area that needs improvement.
