    I have been working at Unum Group as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working for the company as they invest in employees and believes in promoting within. The work dress standards are business casual and I did not experience micromanagement. Employees were given the freedom to complete tasks responsibly and on time.

    Cons

    I have no cons to report at this time.

    Advice to Management

    We're very open to new ideas and implemented an open-door policy for all.

    I have been working at Unum Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great office atmosphere with a lot of experience. I love to travel and the role allows me to do that. In addition, bonuses pay out throughout the year.

    Cons

    The field is often overlooked compared to the home office. In addition, the change in account management has changed and it has been difficult to get some clients on board with that.

    I worked at Unum Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent attention to work life balance on a corporate level (depends on your manager and what department you work for). Great medical, dental and vision benefits, including decent 401k matching, and ability to purchase Unum's voluntary benefits products at a good price such as Group Critical Illness insurance, long term care insurance, etc. 10,000 employees worldwide to network with.

    Cons

    Corporate red tape as at any large company.

    Pros

    1. They are an industry leader in their business 2. Very good working culture - people are very good to each other 3. Operational improvements have been very significant over the last several years. Along with strong financial position, they are well positioned when the economy improves. 4. Benefits are very good, while salaries are market average. 5. Long tenures and they like to promote from within.

    Cons

    Good work will be recognized, but it's an insurance company, so it's not flashy.
