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

    Pros

    Assurant is a premier provider of targeted specialized insurance products in North America and selected other markets. Locations throughout the United States. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Difficulty juggling work / life depending on your department or job function. Very mature company, so not as much risk taking as many organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Many changes ahead with the sell off of Assurant Employee Benefits and Assurant Health. Please do your best to keep the lines of communication open all the time.

    I worked at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    There is always work and the company gives good enough bonuses.

    Cons

    They expect too much from the adjusters. I personally was being underpaid for the industry standard for years. Also, the overtime is a killer. Getting there at 7 and working sometimes until 11 at night just to get the job done. And that was during off season too. Pending was too high to maintain. Everyone was burnt out and didn't want to be there. Very low moral.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on their work and not because you like their personality. Obviously being personable is important but quality workmanship should be accounted for as well. Too many times I've seen the laziest people get raises or promotions while you leave the hard workers in the same spot just because you don't want to lose their work ethic in that position. I do believe this is standard in most businesses now though. Shame.

    I worked at Assurant full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, ability to work from home for certain positions

    Cons

    work overload. Management expected you to be able to do more work that was attainable in 1 day without overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Assess workload

    Pros

    Worked in Miami Campus. Nice environment with some great colleagues. They have flex hours and very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Upper management is not that bright and visionary. Product management system is really poor and there were some unnecessary loss projects going on and continuously got funding because those were the pet projects of some VP's.

    Advice to Management

    Please put some experienced, bright, proper educated and visionary people in the key decision making position. Also, product development and management life cycle needs to be a lot improved.

    Pros

    I've meet some of the most beautiful people inside and out at Assurant! Everyone gets along well and aim for the same goals, always will to help each other and strive for excellence!

    Cons

    Management can sometimes not be available. It's hard to get a manager to sit done and listen to you, most of them seem like they are always rushing to a meeting or busy doing an important project.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees and listen to what they have to say, and don't talk over them, hear them out. Employees make the company, and the are the glue to the whole operation, that makes everything stick together.
