    Pros

    Great benefits and people. They do well to make you a part of the "family". This review is for a professional job and should not be taken into consideration for an hourly/call center position.

    Cons

    Office culture may be too laid back for some. IT systems are convoluted and are high maintenance.

    Pros

    Great culture, very open and down to earth folks. Work life balance is great.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. Favoritism to say the least. Benefits are decent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management tries to keep employees up to date and engaged with the direction of the company. One of the very few companies where I saw the CEO so frequently.

    Former Employee - Hazard Insurance Processor I in Springfield, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    Most people are cool, 10% shift diff for the 2nd shifters, pretty decent benefits and paid time off (holidays and vacations), you can wear jeans, they are good about working with you if you need to leave early or come in late, if your a single guy you have plenty of options b/c alot of the woman their are unfaithful.

    Cons

    It's not about what you know it's who you know, crappy pay schedule (twice a month 1st and 15th) lots of false promises, horrible parking, lot's of cliques and displays of favoritism, unless your a minority or gay don't expect much praise for doing a good job, training is mediocre, unreliable resource guides, continuous changes, and the office politics are worse than presidential election season

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire mgmt that actually have mgmt experience, listen to your people, don't make promises you can't keep, lose the stigmata of 2nd shift people being the rejects and address more of the lazy people on 1st or perhaps adjust your work queues to fit with the shifts....

    Pros

    The job has a lot of flexibility and respects a work life balance

    Cons

    Not able to move from your position if you do not know the a hiring manager that is willing to give you a chance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select and hire managers from within instead of recruting from the outside. There are plenty of hourly associates that has what it takes to lead the company in its initiatives if given the opportunity.
