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

    Pros

    Global name recognition, fairly good menu of benefits, wide range of job families to choose from if qualified.

    Cons

    Company started a new layoff cycle in December and continues thru January... ditching senior/high paid staff and so many good people. If you are young and don't ask for much in salary and don't balk about not getting paid for overtime, this is the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting staff to pay for your blown budgets on new programs that are years behind schedule. Company says people are greatest asset, but yet you frequently ship jobs overseas or cut staff and make the rest do more with less all the time. CEO on down really needs to walk the talk and train/mentor staff development and pay them fairly for missing holidays and not getting overtime pay.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work and learn. Majority of employees have been with the company many years and the company does a lot for its employees. The miami campus is beautiful and has everything you'll need inside. From gym to a full out cafeteria.

    Cons

    They offer great benefits but their pay is low compared to other companies. They're way behind when it comes to technology and innovation. Maybe that comes with the insurance industry. Growth can be slow if you settle in and promotion don't equal to much of a pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your technology. With so much out there to learn there is no need to be stuck in the dark ages of tech. This will bring efficiencies to your processes and better results for your clients. Lastly, don't be afraid of change. Just because it's been done a certain way does not mean it can't be improved. And don't stop treating employees as your number one asset.

    AH is a wonderful place to work. Good management direction, flexible hours, above average pay, great team environment, company sponsored picnics annually.

    Assurant Health had about 2,000 employee two years ago. After the healthcare reform was passed, Assurant made the decision to exit the health insurance industry.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Company is modernizing itself to align more strategically to be more competitive. Company is large and offers great opportunities for good talent.

    Cons

    Some of the upper management talent doesn't align with overall company strategy. Some older management have old school thinking which hinders growth.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Vacation time and 401k Match are good, culture is good. Facilities are very nice and it looks great. Solar panels provide much of the energy so the company is fairly responsible. The employees here are wonderful productive people.

    Cons

    Top heavy with many VPs, Mediocre health benefits, 3% raise budget since economic collapse, always leaning out processes, poor pay increases for internal promotions, fairly stuffy atmosphere with no shorts. The company just froze the pension.

    Advice to Management

    We don't work with the public so I'm not sure why the dress code doesn't allow shorts. Getting rid of the pension was a huge blow. The pay raises need to be bumped up to at least 4% per unit. People who have worked here for a long time need to be making more than others hired off streets.
