Pros

Good PTO
Dental, Mental, and Vision
LTD/STD

Cons

If you wish to have a career do not come here. Unum is not the place if you wish to move up the corporate later. They lie about career mobility here. They usually hire a bunch of bright individuals but they quickly leave the company once they realize that there are no benefits to working here besides taking home a paycheck. Unum has also had issues with sexism. There are barely any females in upper management. The only good thing about this place is the PTO and trust me you will need it.

Advice to Management

Hire managers with actual leadership skills. Stop lying to potiential employees about how the company promotes. If

    Pros

    Great projects
    Insightful and pleasant manager
    Great opportunities
    Opportunity for professional development
    Overall a great summer internship experience. Included field office visit in Atlanta

    Cons

    Chattanooga in not my favorite city
    Atmosphere is more casual than I desired
    Sometimes ran out of work
     It would have been better if I could have worked for 3 months instead of 2.

    Advice to Management

    I could have used a little more analytical work but I know it was hard finding projects that were both not over my head but still challenging.

    Pros

    Time off
    Coworkers
    Benefits package is adequate

    Cons

    Processes keep changing, no input sought from those people actually performing the essential work duties
    Management does not know how to develop performance
    Management pays attention only to favorite employees, ignores the rest
    Management does not communicate professionally
    Senior management has no clue what directors are doing or how they treat employees
    Advancement and promotions tied to whether someone likes the employee, now how the employee performs

    Advice to Management

    Advice to senior management
    1. Get rid of most of the directors, hire people who know how to lead and develop
    2. Stop getting rid of the most talented people (because you neglect them) and fire the incompetent ones
    3. Stop promoting people who the Worcester management team don't even have faith or confidence in
    4. Teach your directors how to manage stress effectively - every single month during the last week they freak out, take their frustrations and anxieties out on the employees and manipulate/pressure the employees to close claims inappropriately - it is getting worse and Worcester senior management just protects their directors rather than doing anything about it
