I have been working at Unum full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Competitive salaries with generous benefits and paid time off. Management seems very willing to help you continue with career development.

Cons

Recent college graduates from private colleges with no experience are placed into higher roles than individuals who have public university degrees and are excelling int he workplace. This can be very frustrating to sit back and watch while you have to prove your worth against that of a recent graduate.

Advice to Management

Be more conscious of the talent you already have and continue to help that grow while also bringing in ripe new talent.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The camaraderie and benefits/salary is good. Working conditions are also good.

    Cons

    Politically it is tilted toward the MBA types. The ceiling is difficult to impossible to break (SVP and above). Ultimately your success depends on being an adherent to the philosophy du jour.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart with older employees who have been with you for many years. Just because the Supreme Court has eviscerated liability for age discrimination does not entitle you to reducing costs by extermination of 55 plus people.
