Good work will be recognized, but it's an insurance company, so it's not flashy.

    Pros

    benefits, employees, team enviroment, continuous improvement culture

    Cons

    Senior management is not a proponent of work at home/alternative works schedules as they should be. More opportunities to effectively utilize social media and technology to simplify work and be more effeicient, as well as keeping up with competition.

    Former Employee - Lead Disability Benefits Specialist in Glendale, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    Generous benefit package and decent pay. They serve free good quality coffee to employees and frequently have cake!

    Cons

    Unfriendly atmosphere in the office I worked at. Most employees under constant stress due unrealistically heavy work load. Management is cut throat and targets employees for firing rather than assisting them to succeed. The company was found guilty of closing claims by quota a few years ago. Since then they were under strict guidelines from DOI. They made workers go through unbelievable hoops to get their work product out. The "close the claim" mindset was still present among some of the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a heart and get rid of the sharks in middle management.
