Cut throat working environment

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

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

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

ConsUnfriendly 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 Senior ManagementGrow a heart and get rid of the sharks in middle management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A Mixed Bag

Manager (Current Employee)
Portland, ME (US)

I have been working at Unum Group full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Good compensation and generous time off Cons: Over the last three to four years the company has scrambled to change things constantly to fix and adjust to the economy. As a result… Advice to Senior Management: People managements needs to be just as high as a priority in Operations as results are. People need to feel valued and they'll go that… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
