    Pros

    Unum has excellent health, vision, and dental care packages. The PTO is pretty generous. However the actually salary is below industry standard

    Cons

    Working at Unum is a very grueling task especially for a DBS. Unum is slow to promote and the the career path is pretty terrible. Some of the managers are incompenent and only care about their numbers. Sadly really intelligent people at Unum end up leaving because of the lack of opprotunities avaliable. The same people are the ones who get recognized. The pay doesn't reflect the work. Pesronally I feel as though Unum doens't recognize talent. DBS are at the bottom of the totem pole at this company even though we are the ones doing the most work.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be based on quality of work not time served on the job. I also believe that senior management should develop more opprotunities to move up in the company. The pay for a DBS needs to be increased.

    None. The time you put in was entirely up to you.

    None - The Company was bought out when it was entered by a Conglomerant and sold on the Stock Market.
