I have been working at Unum Group full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Benefits, Mon-Fri work week. Vacation days. All the money the company wastes on fun days doing nothing, hiring a big name motivational speaker for an all day event, sending employees to Disney world..The pro is for the upper management, CEO's and teachers pets, but the company wastes to much money on fun, but at least there is a lot of fun for the employees!!

Cons

I have had 7 mangers in 7 years of employment. Workflow changes bi-weekly or weekly or daily..(seriously) -Managers pick favorites. for a disability company; they treat employees bad for using FMLA or STD benefits. Teamwork is impossible with managers playing favorites. The employee is never right. The managers think they are and some of us know more than them. No understanding for single mothers leaving to pick up their sick child without having a initial mark on their HR file. Kids dont get sick once a year so if the employee leaves or calls in for this they can eventually loose their job as they only allow 6 occurrences and then you are terminated. Some managers treat their employees worse than you would treat a prisoner. This company says how tey want to make our customers lives better on their commercials, but they dont treat their employees the same. Never take a job their. anything good you hear about this company is from upper management or a "teachers pet". What I said is REAL 100%-

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together-quit changing procedures daily. This only makes us more stressed and confused and causes productivity to slow. Quit picking favorites and dont let your Senior employees(DBS, BCA,,Admin,MRU, etc) tell everyone's business (which they are bound by contract to not do) and then believe them when they say they didnt repeat others personal information.

    Pros

    They pay well and offer good benefits. If the company does well, they pay an annual bonus based on performance. The corporate culture encourages mangers to help employees with their career path and to be fair about time off due to personal issues. There are a lot of directions o go if you want to change your career path. The company is very civic minded.

    Cons

    As a large corporation, sometimes employee communications aren't handled as well as they could be. The corporate rewards program seems to have developed into allowing some managers' to pick their favorite employees more than once rather than the best producing ones. Although they have an excellent severence package, there is a perception within the company that the layoffs seem to be aimed at older employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more IT people - there weren't enough to support the work that the various departments needed to do to keep the customer service ratings high.
