    Pros

    The environment has room for growth

    Cons

    As typical with any large company, the office politics are extremely high. People will throw others under the bus to look good and get that next promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your word when you have good people and you promise to bring them on as an employee. People have families to feed.

    I worked at Assurant full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, PTO days from day 1 and possible opportunity to telework.

    Cons

    Very limited growth, constant change which enables you from meeting or exceeding on your annual review which ultimately leads to no pay increase. Also little to no training when you are hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your new hires, keep an up-to-date procedures manual and promote your talented employees.

    Former Employee - Loss Draft Specialist in Springfield, OH (US)

    I worked at Assurant full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are given copious amounts of paid time off, as well as every weekend off and many opportunities to work voluntary overtime

    Cons

    Promotions are granted from nepotism, not performance. You can be the top performer in your team every month for years and be passed up for promotion instead for the lowest performer. Also, insurance benefits are a joke,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a business, not a fraternity. Don't snub your best employees in order to give your buddies better positions.

    I worked at Assurant as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Assurant does a really great job trying to make sure that their employees are happy. They put a high emphasis on employee engagement, satisfaction, etc which is really refreshing to see.

    Cons

    Insurance is not the most exciting industry, which can sometimes be apparent in the levels of energy in the office. Unfortunately this just comes with the territory.

    Pros

    Assurant has great benefits and employees can work from home in any position. There is also lots of opportunity to grow and move up in the company.

    Cons

    Most of the managers are not as involved with their teams efforts and challenges as they should be. Hard working employees are not recognized for their accomplishments that has made a difference to the company.
