I have been working at Unum Group

Pros

UNUM pays very well compared to other companies in the area. It's actually one of the better paying companies in the state. It has a very good benefits package, and supports a work / home balance.

Cons

I think that Unum's lacks alot of recognition of employees, especially in IT.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall, I think it has become a really good company.

    Pros

    I went to work for Unum straight out of college. I found it a learning experience and a real eye-opener experience in regards to learning about corporate culture.

    Cons

    Bottom line, to much work with not enough pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with staff. Improve the way in which employees can post out to other positions.

    I worked at Unum Group

    Pros

    Generous paid time off (combination of sick leave and vacation), above average other benefits. Pay is above average.

    Cons

    Management and work flow structure make getting anything done virtually impossible. Directives are constantly coming from 3-4 different directions. HEAVY reliance on e-mail. 100+ per day is the norm in my former department. Very few difference makers. Mostly middle management types looking to cover their own butts. So many people are looking only out for themselves and their annual reviews that a true cohesive goal is virtually impossible. Front line employees end up taking direction from more than 3-4 people creating chaos in their workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thin middle management. So many people are looking only out for themselves and their annual reviews that a true cohesive goal is virtually impossible. Front line employees end up taking direction from more than 3-4 people creating chaos in their workload.
