    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.
