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

    Pros

    Well established and highly recognized company in the communities where they have significant operations as well as in the Employee Benefits market place. There are lots of great people working there who are a true joy to work with who always want to do a great job and deliver high quality results for the company.

    Cons

    They are challenged to figure out how to truly move forward to modernize the company behind the scenes. Lots of energy, great strategic ideas and plans that are poorly executed and usually never completed due to lack of patience and micromanaging teams of experts who feel like they're not listened to and feel not listened to.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to set the vision and attainable goals while allowing the teams responsible for delivering on those results to self manage themselves without constant micro management by upper management.
