    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    6 percent 401k match is nice

    Cons

    You are just a number. Layoffs. Disorganized. No room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Look to lower lines for expertise and customer satisfaction. Too many decisions made at a high level that do not make sense for the customer.

    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

    Pros

    Assurant is a good company especially for customer service entry level employees who need to learn the ropes. You will have a few weeks of training and have plenty of opportunity to learn from a seasoned employee before being on the floor alone.

    Cons

    scheduled breaks are important, everything is timed
    no real room for advancement or salary increases
    you have to work many weekends and some late evenings (overtime)

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

    Pros

    Starting pay, benefits, hours of operation, great co-workers, job security, on-site cafeteria and fitness center, easy parking situation, great trainers.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, completely unrealistic expectations for handle time, understaffed, extremely low pay increases (less than the cost of inflation), little to no room for advancement. Out of touch Managers who are not intelligent enough/trained enough to even do the job of their employees!

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people! Listen to reps on the floor/front lines! Don't become the Wal-Mart of health insurance! Encourage your employees with praise AND constructive criticism. I have heard accolades from OTHER reps and from customers...but, never from my own manager.
