Pros

Your performance is the key to your profitability with this company. From the onset, employees are given the training and tools necessary to create their own success. Qualifying Sales Reps are rewarded handsomely with bonuses including week-long Corporate Annual Sales Conferences, salary bonuses, and other performance based incentive programs. Reps are expected to, and their performance is accessed based on their meeting the sales goals prescribed to them by their Office Manager.

Cons

The shortcomings are few, but noteworthy. While Unum often promotes from within, the ceiling for most employees will be Sales Rep, and for numbered few per office, Senior Account Executive. Management positions are in short supply.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    Pros

    Great Management at Unum prior to the Merger. Training employees and support in job functions was the focus.

    Cons

    Merged with Provident and lost focus on importance of employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from your mistakes and look at the Unum model prior to the merger. Employees are your most important asset.

    I have been working at Unum Group

    Pros

    Unum has excellent health, vision, and dental care packages. The PTO is pretty generous. However the actually salary is below industry standard

    Cons

    Working at Unum is a very grueling task especially for a DBS. Unum is slow to promote and the the career path is pretty terrible. Some of the managers are incompenent and only care about their numbers. Sadly really intelligent people at Unum end up leaving because of the lack of opprotunities avaliable. The same people are the ones who get recognized. The pay doesn't reflect the work. Pesronally I feel as though Unum doens't recognize talent. DBS are at the bottom of the totem pole at this company even though we are the ones doing the most work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be based on quality of work not time served on the job. I also believe that senior management should develop more opprotunities to move up in the company. The pay for a DBS needs to be increased.
