    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been at the company for over 3 years, most employees have long tenures 10-40 years. The company culture is so much like a family. Everyone I have met or interacted with is always eager to help and contribute. I'm very fortunate to have had the bosses that I've had, great professionals and maybe even friends. As we go through our integration with Legacy TWG employees, I feel more and more happy to a part of this organization. Our new family members are also awesome people to work with, great professionals, extensive talent, kind human beings.

    Cons

    A minor downside might be that things are a bit slow to make happen. Our processes from hiring to product launch are sometimes tedious and long, but that's only because we're rigorous in researching and meticulous in deciding a strategy.

    Advice to Management

    We need more team meetings where we can interact face to face with the people we work with everyday.

    I have been working at Assurant full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - supportive managers and teams
    - opportunity to work on high profile projects and with very smart people
    - secure and comfortable job
    - work/life balance is great

    Cons

    - not a place for young, ambitious professionals
    - not growth opportunities- most people stay in the same role forever
    - not a fun place to work; it's a typical, stuffy insurance company; internal culture is non-existant
    - pay is good but asking for a raise is very much against company culture; you have to wait for it to be offered
    - it takes a long time to get things done- people move very slowly and almost no one stays past 5pm. For someone who likes fast-paced environment, this isn't it.

    Advice to Management

    - understand the millennial workforce better and you'll attract (and retain) great talent

    Pros

    full time and benefits. Comfortable work space.

    Cons

    working weekends, holidays and very terrible hours/pay .. never have two days off in a row and schedule is constantly changing. Favouritism is also a big factor at this company.. and they tell you that you will move up in the company, but they put sticks in your wheels so that you are unable to because they have trouble finding employees that will actually stay. do not work for google warranty department, it is the worst decision you will make.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees better, rewards and positive remarks go a long way, negativity doesn't.
