Great, conservative company

Process Analyst (Current Employee)
Chattanooga, TN (US)

I have been working at Unum Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsPlenty of paid time off, good culture, opportunities for advancement for creative and driven employees, a budding movement toward openness and more modern workspaces, and superior work/life balance opportunities (work from home and alternative schedules)

ConsBehind much of the industry technologically (way too many applications), redundant processes, hit-or-miss leadership with little accountability for devastating errors in many departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to pursue making Unum the technology leader in the disability industry, focus attention on accountability and meaningful coaching for leadership--both new and old--as much as you've focused on coaching for individual contributors, review ongoing projects and initiatives holistically to reduce redundancy--it will save you money!

Unum is a great company, it prides itself on being more like a small family company. Great benefits and very stable.

Prosvery friendly work environment, since the outsourcing days have ended technology is advancing to where it should be. Very stable company with great benefits.

ConsLike any large company the bureaucracy does drag somewhat, but it is not a major problem. Just lends to the extra paperwork etc, that has now become part of the job.
