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

    Pros

    Technology is starting to come up to speed with other companies in the industry so you have opportunities to learn, compensation and benefits are very fair, I was part of the group that spent 11 mos in Jersey City due to Super Storm Sandy and the move back and forth went seamless - the company pretty much covered everything to make us feel comfortable. IT staff are knowledgeable and generally helpful.

    Cons

    As with any large company, the culture goes in cycles and I speak just from the IT perspective. Centralize to de-centralize and back again, off shore work to bringing it back to sending it off again..it all depends who the Officers are of any particular area. Right now it seems to lean toward sending much support work off shore so if you are not lucky enough to be on a development project, you will have to keep a watch to see where your particular work might end up right now. I also think Guardian IT is becoming very top heavy but again this is another cycle as I have seen it run lean as well. Some areas were very overworked and understaffed while others seemed the opposite.

    Advice to Management

    Regardless of the current trend taking place, cultivate confidence and loyalty in your staff. We all know that any time we might be downsized and we need to always look over our shoulder in this corporate climate, but for day-to-day interaction I think the verbal pat on the back and making yourselves open and approachable will have your staff responding positively and look forward to coming into the office each day.
