    Pros

    They are a great company with an awesome reputation in the business world. We always have great ratings with the stock holders and our revenue has continued to beat everyone's expectations. Not only does this company provide an excellent benefit package but they are always full of unexpected surprises that confirm my acceptance in my job. They really take care of you!

    Cons

    The only downside is not having the possibility of working remote from home. With the price of gas these days, the appeal of driving into work every day is losing it's momentum. I would love to work from home. Not only to be more "green" but to also reduce traffic on the roads to have that rush hour stress deducted completely from my daily routine. It would make a much happier me and in turn, make our customers much happier.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider the benefit of working from home. Not only does the company save money by being able to reduce the size needed for workers but it also helps the employees save with the expense of gas and transportation.

    Pros

    Company strength, reputation and friendly work environment

    Cons

    None - great company to work for

    Advice to Management

    Meet the staff personally on a more frequent basis. Other than town hall meetings, we never see any of the Company officers.

    Some negative press about the ESC and Health products

    Advice to Management

    Open social media sites to employees. Don't be so concerend about negative press - it's out there anyway. Allow employees to take advantage of the benefits that social media has to offer.

    Pros

    Good compensation for those that can advance, but there is a good ole' boys club you have to join to get there.

    Cons

    Benefits keep getting reduced each year while the employee work load keeps increasing as Sr Management slashes costs by reducing headcount and cutting benefits, all the while trying to grow the business.

    Many businesses are unable to react to market changes in a timely manner due to "paralysis by analysis" mentality and being afraid of their own shadows.

    People get rewarded and advanced for sucking up rather than on their abilities, good ole' boys club.

    Human Resources is there to cater to and side with management, not the individual employee, never trust HR.

    Advice to Management

    Find more consumer friendly products that can be praised by consumer advocates. Blur the lines between the 4 existing very isolated business units ( Health, Solutions, Benefits, Specialty). If you bring a fraction of the perks and praise to the operations people as you do the sales & marketing associates you will be in a much better place.

    Pros

    This is a continually changing organization, which makes it a place where you are always learning in order to keep up with that change.

    Cons

    It is an organization with various work locations. Although we overcome the distance with technology and travel, virtual work has some disadvantages.

    Advice to Management

    The organization will benefit greatly from putting a greater emphasis on understanding how the organization works from the ground up.

    High moral caracter of company
    Excellent benefits - My wifes Federal Government insurance coverage and rates were higher
    Well funded

    Cons

    Not much name recognition outside of health insurance
    A little slow to change

    Advice to Management

    I was laid off after three years, when the economy slowed. I recieved the same severance as 20 year employees. They should have been treated a little better.

    Pros

    Great organization with a great culture. I am extremely satisfied working for the organization and enthusiasticly recommend them to potential employees. Leadership s very interested in developing talent and driving growth within the organization. Very aggressive organization with regards to signing new clientel.

    Cons

    The organization is growing so rapidly that employees are often asked to perform work outside scope of job description. The advantage of course is that you get exposed to doing types of work and gain experience in areas that you may not usually be exposed to.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Continue to mentor us and include us in on the growth discussion. We want to be a part of shaping this companies future and are glad to be here.

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

    Pros

    Laid back culture. Business casual on a daily basis. Friday everyone can wear jeans and sneakers. The supervisors are nice, friendly and helpful. Your colleagues are down to earth, helpful and friendly. Everyone will embrace the new employees. Most employees have been employed 4+ years. Assurant is one of the very few companies that still offer a pension plan and a plus 401k. The amenities are good. Gym, day care, public school on the grounds and more. You'll have access to this while working in an inbound call center environment, an entry level position. The property is well kept and clean. Grass groomed regularly. Free coffee, and teas provided to your hearts content.

    Cons

    Salary in on the low side, so you may have to depend on a second salary of some type, however had work does not go unnoticed. There are projects and lots of things going on.
    Training can be somewhat nerve raking, however, the trainers are kind and accommodating.
    The provide plenty of break time and generous lunch hours.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job and I feel you really care about the people who report to you, kudos for that.
