    I worked at Assurant full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Assurant prides itself on creating a culture where both customers and employees feel valued, secure and respected.

    Cons

    There are often synergies within and between the Assurant companies that are not considered when operational models are vetted. Missed opportunities to apply portable learnings, technology and talent.

    Advice to Management

    People don't leave companies...they leave managers. Focus heavily on staff development and provide opportunities for everyone (top to bottom) to learn, grow and move into new and challenging roles.

    Nice place to work. Salary was fair. Flexible hours Coworkers like family and made many long lasting friendships. Campus was nice.

    Not much room for advancement. Most of the time it was who you knew that that moved you up in the company. A lot of favoritism.

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

    Pros

    401k match; decent benefits and time off; pay is not quite fair, but close

    Cons

    The work is unbearably dull. Somehow a high number of lazy and incompetent people make their way into management. No one takes employee concerns and poor reviews about management seriously, so they have free reign to operate departments with ineptitude and destroy employee morale.

    I worked at Assurant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, easy work, great weekend job to support yourself through school, alright benefits package

    Cons

    Favoritism, very top-down structure, aggressive supervisors who are number focused, not a ton of room for advancement unless you know the right people

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to differing solutions to processes that may increase efficiency, do not undercut or handicap departments, the favoritism has to go, cross-training employees would help tremendously rather than specialization
