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

    Pros

    Location and property upkeep, volunteer time and charitable donations, attached school and daycare, good space to keep physically active

    Cons

    Too many rude people, hard workers have to work harder due to lazy ones, schizophrenic priorities and constant deckchair shuffling, too many layers of management that are clueless, "it is what it is" = refusal to even consider making things better, lack of investment in employees, and a massive culture of "malicious compliance" enabled by lack of pride, ownership, and oversight.

    Advice to Management

    Take a careful look at your middle management who are actually implementing directives. When enterprise software is selected it seems functionality, usability, trainability, stability, and track record are nowhere near the top of the radar. Why is that? With each passing few months tools get replaced with inferior versions and the percentage of the job that's dealing with hassle increases leaving less time to work on stuff that matters. When people aren't doing things that make sense, that's erosive to anyone who does work instead of just takes credit for it. Any manager that cannot sit in substitution for their subordinates should be let go: they simply don't know where their cup is. Ask for, and listen to, advice that the people on the ground offer before they leave you next time.

    I have been working at Assurant (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisor was great and would have taken things in a great direction had he been given more leverage.

    Cons

    Upper Management is all over the place and does nothing but ask other's to do their work. The departments are barely staying afloat.

    Advice to Management

    Get with it.... horrible management system. Upper Management gossips more than works

    I worked at Assurant full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    On campus day care, gym, dry cleaning, dining hall. Good activities and sports on the campus. I enjoyed my time there. The ability to work from home was nice at times.

    Cons

    The environment can have a bit of a high school feel at times. Some groups can be very clique. No flexibility when it came to working hours.

    Advice to Management

    To be a great leader, you have to know all aspects of the jobs under you. I would say to really know all tasks for the people that will work for you.
