Pros

They pay well and offer good benefits. If the company does well, they pay an annual bonus based on performance. The corporate culture encourages mangers to help employees with their career path and to be fair about time off due to personal issues. There are a lot of directions o go if you want to change your career path. The company is very civic minded.

Cons

As a large corporation, sometimes employee communications aren't handled as well as they could be. The corporate rewards program seems to have developed into allowing some managers' to pick their favorite employees more than once rather than the best producing ones. Although they have an excellent severence package, there is a perception within the company that the layoffs seem to be aimed at older employees.

Advice to Management

Hire more IT people - there weren't enough to support the work that the various departments needed to do to keep the customer service ratings high.

    Pros

    Work/life balance is important to me and Unum allows flexible work scheduled. Benefits are outstanding and I work with amazing people.

    Cons

    Unum has an annual bonus incentive program. The is a big disparity in how employees are paid out. The lowest paid employees receive small bonus while directors and above get 10-40% of their already large salaries as a bonus. It would be more fair to have all employees get the same percentage, for example all employees get a 10% of their salary bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work leading the company during these challenging times.
