I worked at Unum full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent attention to work life balance on a corporate level (depends on your manager and what department you work for). Great medical, dental and vision benefits, including decent 401k matching, and ability to purchase Unum's voluntary benefits products at a good price such as Group Critical Illness insurance, long term care insurance, etc. 10,000 employees worldwide to network with.

Cons

Corporate red tape as at any large company.

    Pros

    Great salary, hight amount of PTO, benefits

    Cons

    Constantly re-organizing with ever changing teams, "down-sizing" annually and then 3 months hiring new people, too process driven which does not allow for creative "just do it" improvements, no real candor- very cut-throat environment. Chronically understaffed leading to work stress and overload to reach "results". To survive, people just shut down....and no longer offer insight, ideas, because too many times it leads to "feedback" which is critical, and lacking in support to improve or develop. Culture from senior management is to close claims, period, even though they give lip-service to doing the right thing- it is all about the result at the end of the month.

    Advice to Management

    Allow directors and managers autonomy to manage people and results- AVPs and VPs should stop micro-managing; reduce the frequency of manager/director changes, if a team is high functioning let it be. Recognize style differences and work to build teams where the individual styles gel together and with that of the management staff. Make sure feedback is given to "help" the individual, not to demean them, or as punishment.
