    I have been working at Assurant full-time for more than 20 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.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They offer very attractive severance packages, and my department allowed people to telecommute on a regular basis. Other than that, there isn't much good to say about this company.

    Cons

    It's a very "old school" company. Their systems look like some kid's seventh grade science project from about twenty five years ago. Management was far less than competent.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have more than a high school education, and that know how to use basic reasoning and logic.

    I worked at Assurant for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and wonderful vacation package.

    Cons

    Company is downsizing and is not replacing employees, creating a large burden for those who remain. HR department is inaccessible to employees unless you make an appointment. Uncaring about retaining great performers.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to let go of poor performing managers instead of moving them to other departments.

    I have been working at Assurant

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers and good place to start- if you can work here, you can work anywhere. It all depends on the department you're working in and who your managers are. Many people are very happy at Assurant and have been working there for over 20 years.

    Cons

    This is a very stressful environment to work in. The customers are demanding, there is minimal training and knowledge transfer, and most employees are overworked. The compensation is not that great- take any talk of bonuses with a LARGE grain of salt.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to employees, help them set priorities, and try to make the work environment less stressful. Employees want to succeed, but more coaching is needed.

  10. Assurant - Growth and Personal Advancement

    I have been working at Assurant

    Pros

    Assurant promotes personal and career growth. Great tuition reimbursement benefits, great paid time off, great health plans and 401(k) matching. Management is always willing to listen and provide direction to employees. The company as a whole is stable and growing, even after recent economic troubles. Corporate culture is good, most senior management has an open-door policy and there are numerous employee activities available.

    Cons

    Downsides to working at Assurant would include the size of the company. As with most large organizations, employees can sometimes become lost in bureaucracy and paperwork, but for most companies its size, Assurant does a very good job of trying to promote development in all employees for promotion and advancement. Reorganizations are quite common, but rarely does that result in job cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to senior management would be to make a better attempt to get to know as many employees as possible and speak to them, perhaps make them feel more welcome.
