    I have been working at Unum full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, generally provides good work-life balance, some areas provide nice advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Don't count on a raise unless you change job levels, which can be difficult to do. Old software systems don't work together and can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the conservative strategy, but provide more communication to non-management employees.

    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.
