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

    Pros

    Large company, with multiple locations and work from home opportunities. Options to move into different areas of organization. They are great about charity giving, having matches set for United Way, plus they match up to $1000 every year of each employee’s individual giving to charities of their choice.

    Cons

    Large workload, many departments it is all about meeting your numbers. Frequent company acquisitions increase demands and cause resulting reorganization and culture changes. I would still be working there were it not for a IT reorganization, which seems to happen every 3-5 years. Once you get to certain level, hard to progress beyond that layer.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    Position is perfect for someone who needs to stay off their feet. Repetitive production work.

    Cons

    Very stringent work environment. Pass through metal detectors and no watches, fitness trackers allowed that a cellular customer might carry. No personal cell phones allowed with you on the production floor unless you are management., etc.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the associates place and think if the decision you're supporting is one that you would be comfortable with if you were in their shoes,

    Pros

    Good starting pay for customer care representative. 28,800 in 2017

    Cons

    Continuous schedule changes by the company

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding of people who have lives outside of work. The multiple schedule changes make it hard for people with children, medical obligations like dialysis, and/or school.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    Global technology organization management uses explicit profane use of vulgar language to staff in front of other staff. Creating an environment of low self-esteem and hostile work ethics. Vulgar and profane statements obviously allowed by VPs and SVPs which is perceived as harassment. Attention is made for inappropriate conduct by AVPs in IT management in a hostile work environment. Assurant should treat its employees in a fair and equitable manner and with dignity and respect.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    Work at home Opportunities and Yearly Bonus

    Cons

    They do not care about hiring from within. Lots of departments were closed. Not enough minority male promotions they just hired a bunch of white woman execs to fill in minority gap. Very boring office atmosphere almost funeral-like

    Advice to Management

    None this is exactly how they want it all IT will be outsourced soon from server group to project managing and this is from an inside source
