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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, every one was warm, friendly and professional.
    The work was always interesting.
    Great deal of autonomy.

    Cons

    None really, salary not being assessed by location was the only challenge, in other parts of the country it was great remuneration.

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

    Pros

    Assurant was a great place to work, friendly staff and managers.
    There was room for advancement with company reimbursed training programs for further qualifications.
    Benefits were brilliant as well with health, gym and bike to work scheme.
    Good nights out for both teams and company.
    Found management at all levels to be extremely helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    No opportunity for overtime or to make extra money.
    Was great until we acquired a larger company, we were promised it wouldn't affect our jobs but sure enough we were all made redundant a few months later.

    Advice to Management

    None really, while I was there, they were fantastic.

    Pros

    It was a Very relaxed and supportive environment, where you were let give your contribution at your pace so long as within the team’s targets

    Cons

    It was too relaxed at times, to the point of lacking structure: it was not always easy to figure out what was expected from you

    Advice to Management

    They should make sure that goals and targets are clearly defined, and let the employees achieve them in the same exact way they used to do it.

    Pros

    This company had a talent for hiring good people with great attitudes, good work experience and the ability to fit in and create a positive working environment. The company really appreciated its employees both personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Outside influences on the business put pressure on the company, which could not deliver on promised financial goals. The office was closed in July 2014

    Advice to Management

    Strive to develop a winning strategy for European business.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working conditions, friendly staff. Good benefits like pension, gym membership and healthcare (subsidized) I worked there for over 10 years and was very satisfied in general. I worked mostly with colleagues based in the US.

    Cons

    Progression is limited. Senior management can be set in their ways and not open to change. Like a lot of companies there is nepotism. Redundancy process was not at all satisfactory as we were strung along with idea that our jobs could be saved when there was blatantly no plans to save anyone's job.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth.

    I worked at Assurant part-time

    Pros

    The people I worked with were just the best. We had clear accountability and freedom to do our jobs at the same time. A lot of trust. And a lot of support to achieve in the best conditions, develop our roles and our skills.

    Cons

    the commute was tough but that's life.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been at the company for over 3 years, most employees have long tenures 10-40 years. The company culture is so much like a family. Everyone I have met or interacted with is always eager to help and contribute. I'm very fortunate to have had the bosses that I've had, great professionals and maybe even friends. As we go through our integration with Legacy TWG employees, I feel more and more happy to a part of this organization. Our new family members are also awesome people to work with, great professionals, extensive talent, kind human beings.

    Cons

    A minor downside might be that things are a bit slow to make happen. Our processes from hiring to product launch are sometimes tedious and long, but that's only because we're rigorous in researching and meticulous in deciding a strategy.

    Advice to Management

    We need more team meetings where we can interact face to face with the people we work with everyday.

    It depends on who you work with

    Treat people how you would like to be treated
