Pros

Good benefits including for domestic partners. Tuition reimbursement includes books and you need only a B-. Sometimes interesting work and there are some truly excellent people there (not necessarily Managers and above, though).

Cons

I agree with many existing reviews here. In my experience this company is slow to give raises unless you slavishly conform to the existing corporate culture (which means change is slow if it erupts at all, and then sometime's squashed). Some IT systems are awful: old, poorly understood and supported, clunky. As noted by others, some recognition programs are thought by many to be for rewarding favorite employees only, not merit-based. This company attracts workers partly because there aren't many large employers in Southern Maine, and not based on its own strengths....

Advice to Management

Ask the employees: they have plenty of good ideas.

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for growth and development. There are competitive benefits including a pension which is almost unheard of today.

    Cons

    The internal technology of Unum is limited and frustrating. Several years after merging the companies together serious issues remain that are hindering the company's competitive advantage.
