    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great facility and lots of things to do at the building. Decent benefits, but great 401k. Easy to move up, until a certain point. Management positions are difficult to get.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seems to care about overworking employees. Very difficult to move up, unless you know upper management very well.

    I worked at Assurant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was a really challenging job, with a lot of interesting problems to work on. I had a really good relationship with everyone on the business side of things, and was able to accomplish a fair bit to make their lives easier.

    Cons

    This company has a very toxic culture within the programming group, reinforced by a history of programmers being treated very poorly by upper management. For a long time, they had a policy of hiring junior / mediocre programmers and low-balling them on salary, which allowed their legacy software to devolve into a ball of mud.

    Rather than hiring high-quality programmers and re-factoring their system to make it modular and maintainable, they chose to re-write the system from scratch, spending 4 years writing a new order placement system and 5 years on a new order fulfillment system. These new systems are a mess, architecturally; the boundaries between systems are in the wrong place, the new systems aren't any better written, internally, than the legacy system was (unsurprisingly, since the legacy system is where most of their programmers learned Perl), and data gets copied between databases and falls out of sync on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    The technical direction of this company needs to completely change. Invest in cleaning up your legacy system, and stop wasting time building new pie-in-the-sky systems.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule at times. Easy to take your PTO that is given to you for the full year at the beginning of the year.

    Cons

    No raises or bonuses. Promises not kept by upper management. Bad leadership. No communication or ability to voice concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do better at hiring good employees.

    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 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    some of the staff and people. The work environment was good where I was at. Some other teams were not as fortunate.

    Cons

    Long hours, under paid, not enough support from middle and upper management. It's more about who you know than what you do.

    Advice to Management

    Be more helpful to others, not just those on your team. Sometimes other teams need support and their manager is out. Instead of promoting everyone for themselves attitude make it more of a community.

    Pros

    Summer company outings. Holiday bonus

    Cons

    Most of the people who work here are uneducated, and it shows. The managers don't know the job their associates do. People are promoted based on favoritism, not skill. Then when things go wrong, no one knows what to do. Some managers are vindictive, especially the ones that only have a high school education. I'm not saying that everyone needs a degree, but maybe the people in management and upper management do.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on skill, not how much you like someone.
