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

Pros

Decent pay and great benefits.

Cons

Impossible to grow without knowing someone. If you try to start a career with Assurant get ready to spend a lot of time in that entry level position.

Advice to Management

Learn to measure employees based on results and not on affiliation. A lot of employees have noticed and it shows in the moral of the everyday employee.

    I worked at Assurant full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Finding a large company that offers benefits in Springfield Ohio is a difficult feat, but Assurant is a nice place to gain experience in an office setting if you do not have any. They also offer a lot of free training courses that you can take through the company, and they also have very felxible scheduling.

    Cons

    If start at Assurant at Entry Level, be prepared to stay there. They rarely, if ever, promote from with in. However, if you enter in as management, you may have a better chance. Also, there were many incentive prograams available when I first started in 2005, but as the years progressed they slowly did away with all of them, as well as changed the company's health insurance package. They still expected a large amount of overtime, but no longer made the idea of all that work appealing.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a person on your team that does exceptionally well, why would you think they would not do exceptional well in a higher position? Don't be afraid to move them forward, especially if your only concern is replacing them from their current position.
