At Guardian, people are the key to success
Sr. Regional VP; Retirement Income Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYDecember 8, 2017
In my particular profession, there isn't a "typical" day at work - which is actually very good. You work as long as is needed ( into late evening if necessitated). It's a fast-paced, very competitive environment - - especially when you're competing against 12 - 14 other professionals on your Retirement Income Specialist team who are also charged with meeting sales goals & objectives. Perhaps one of the hardest parts of the job is staying on "top of your game" every day. Think of it as being on stage all day for a Broadway show performance. You must be very knowledgeable, have passion & conviction. You must also be resourceful and able to come up with creative ideas & strategies.
The most enjoyable parts of this job are the competition, relationships & friendships one can form, and the satisfaction in knowing you've created strategies & solutions to help ensure that clients can effectively plan for their retirement The accompanying monetary rewards can also be very attractive.
Pros
Good values, diverse & inclusive culture, company benefits, open communication
Cons
frequent changes in company realignments & management

Medical claims office is closed.
Quality Assurance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Norwell, MAOctober 20, 2017
Guardian Life no longer sells or processes medical claims.

I believe they may still have a financial office in Boston. I believe they still process Life Insurance and possibly dental insurance processed in a few states.
Pros
Good Job and benefits
Cons
Office has been closed for years

slow paced, relaxed, great work life balance
Finance Manager (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 19, 2017
Guardian has a very slow paced, relaxed work environment. Great work life balance but not much career advancement options. Most of the vertical career movement happens at senior and executive level positions. Mid-management and staff level positions do not have much of a growth.

Guardian Life Insurance Company was a temporary position for me...
Receptionist (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 17, 2017
I worked at Guardian Life Insurance Company for just a few months, as it was a temporary position. Although I mainly had no interest in the business, as it seemed to be hugely complicated and mercurial, it was a pleasant place to work and the management was friendly and fair.
Pros
Temporary position.

None.

The people I met at Guardian were, without fail, some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure to work with. While everyone was busy, they took the time to get to know co-workers. There was an effort to be involved, as a corporation, with local charities and neighborhood events.

Disability Income Protection Specialist CO and NV (Current Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 5, 2017
I really respect Guardian as a company but the new management here in Denver has no idea what he's doing. Very disappointing, I would have stayed but he's running the business into the ground and frankly, is putting his attention on all the wrong things.
