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

Pros

Good opportunity if you are in the right department and location. Company uses product innovation to stay competitive and has done a decent job in staying relevant in the industry.

Cons

Has a bad reputation for not paying claims which leads to disgruntled clients which leads to client attrition. Also, has a tendency to quckly become uncompetitive in any given market.

Advice to Management

Find your niche and stay there.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Fast paced environment. Your days would go quickly.

    Cons

    Micro Management. They would take the word of a computer over their own people that they paid.
    They were too worried about hitting numbers that were calculated and did not look at the source of the production problems...or they just ignored them.

    Advice to Management

    Trust what your sales staff have to say and work with them instead of just reading reports.

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

    Pros

    - Benefits (Medical, 401k Match, Pension, ESPP, etc)
    - Experience working with many different departments
    - Employees
    - Salary is fair

    Cons

    - Industry (Extended Warranties/Insurance)
    - Lack of appreciation/recognition for hard work
    - Priorities not clear/Direction not in line with priorities
    - Top employees spread too thin
    - No clear track/direction for moving up or improving performance
    - So concerned about perception/politics, it interferes with ability to do work
    - It's impossible to get anything done when it involves technology

    Advice to Management

    Instead of depending so much on certain key employees, train and hold other employees responsible to balance the workload and improve efficiency. Practice what you preach. Be consistent. .
