If you aren't in either the Miami or Atlanta offices, don't bother working for Assurant

Pros

Best HR department I've ever seen.

Cons

This company is a product of the merger of two companies - one was in Atlanta and the other was in Miami. They kept both offices and have a couple thousand people at each location. Through acquisitions they have offices elsewhere. In the other offices the employees are treated as second class citizens. They are almost universally treated badly to encourage resignations so Assurant won't have to pay hefty severance packages. Perhaps this is the norm if you work for an acquired company, but they're very passive aggressive about it which is annoying to say the least. People are terminated in a somewhat random fashion - some are let go with no notice and others get up to four months notice. If you are "lucky" enough to not be terminated you will have to contend with their incredibly antiquated technology (circa 1980) and siloed method of operating. It's difficult to find the one person out of the 14,000 who has the knowledge you're looking for if you're trying to solve a problem, and only about half of the other employees at best are willing to help. Most people are punching the clock and couldn't care less about anyone outside of their silo. In addition, there is a class system where the top layers of management are treated very differently than the lower levels. Perhaps this is the norm in Fortune 250 companies, but that doesn't mean it's right. Assurant is a prime example of why insurance companies are considered to be dinosaurs. I wouldn't buy their stock on a bet. They're standing still at best.

Advice to Management

Get into the 21st century. Update your technology, break down the silos and treat people with respect.

    Pros

    Company allows for you to manage multiple job priorities that as a result allow the employee to learn various task such as handling multiple projects, cost benefit analysis, business analytics, and employee developement.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the work, you are limited in your exposure to new technology and skillsets. The company is slow to grasp new ideas and often show favoritism toward certain employees.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Level management should be cleared out, as they have been with the company for many years and are unable keep up with industry trends. Mid-level managers need to listen to their employees.

    Pros

    Promotes the work-life balance, gives flexibility to the employees, technology savvy, offers great benefits compared to many other similar size company in USA. Promotes lot of team building activities, is involved and encourages employes to be involved in lot of community activities.

    Cons

    some bureaucracies, obvious for a big company. Also it has been gone through lot of change management every year, some were obvious, some were necessary, some were not!

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more open-minded and need to bring more stable environment instead of so many changes.
