    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

    Acknowledge those who show up to work with a great attitude, learn how to manage conflict and communicate properly with staff about decisions or opinions in certain areas. One team meeting every 6 months is unacceptable.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits; decent pay; work/life balance - enjoy working with my team and direct managers.

    Cons

    More work from home opportunities should be explored with the ever growing traffic issues in Atlanta. No real maternity/paternity policy in place. System issues are continuous.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with current benefits trends to help better retain and attract employees. Implementing progressive changes will help the perception of Assurant as a place potential employees will want to work at.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Work from home days (depend on the department) are nice. Cool office in Midtown. They try to create a work/life balance. Some managers are more flexible than others, but people commuting from far suburbs should have more flexibility, especially when being in the office is not a requirement to create good work

    Cons

    Boys club. Moving the cool office in midtown to the other, more corporate office in Windy Hill. Senior management is out of touch. No holiday bonuses. Not much upward mobility. Lots of outsourcing to contractors in India. Seemingly high turnover of talent. The way they laid off some team members was devoid of compassion

    Advice to Management

    Talent is quick to leave because they can find a company with competitive pay and a much better work environment. The move to get rid of the Midtown office was an incredibly stupid one. Not only is Windy Hill a boring, and congested area which will get worse with Braves traffic, but the Midtown office kept the company competitive in attracting creatives from different areas of Atlanta. The walkability of the Midtown office was a huge plus and this is an example of how the senior management is out of touch with what the employees want. Since the announcement of the office change, there has been a mass exodus of talented, creative people. Assurant stifles creativity.
