    Pros

    None. Absolutely none that I can think of. Well, I guess it is better than being homeless and living under a bridge.

    Cons

    Tons. First rule: don't apply here. Second rule: if you did apply here and got hired, then run do not walk to another job. Management -- from CEO and Sr. VPs all the way down to Supervisors and Team Leaders are, with a very few exceptions, clueless. Sun Life, who purchased Assurant Employee Benefits, will eventually close this office and take all of the jobs to other already existing Sun Life locations.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Business school. Or go to Business school in the first place.

    Pros

    Incredible leadership with strategic vision for sustainable growth. They seek employee input and make positive changes for results.

    Cons

    They were just sold to another carrier. The amazing culture of AEB fetched a good price for AIZ which suffered after Assurant Health had to close its doors. Too bad.

    Advice to Management

    New management should take advantage of the rich strategic leadership resources to grow new combined employee teams.
