5 Stars
National Accounts Implementation Manager (Current Employee), Chattanooga, TNSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: opportunity for growth, movement, benefits, people
Cons: 4th quarter
Unum is a wonderful place to work. I wanted to represent 5 stars for each of the above but it would not allow me to click on all 5.

I've enjoyed the constant growth and learning opportunities that have been given to me. I have moved up through the corporation very quickly and have enjoyed all roles that I have held.

The Company no longer looks out for their employee's
Client Manager (Former Employee), Hartford, CTApril 26, 2014
Pros: none anymore
Cons: new management style
I worked at Unum for almost 14 years as a Account Consultant/Client Manager. The company was one of the best companies to work for until a year and half ago when they moved to the growth strategy model. I was working 65+ hours per week and the amount of pressure from managers was too much. They treat you like 2nd graders by yelling and belittling you – more... in front of co-workers. When the new model rolled out in 2013, they cut our pay and based it on part base salary and commissions for a customer service position. Even when meeting your goals it still was not good enough.

I will say prior to new management coming in and the new "Growth Strategy", Unum was a great place to work for for several years. I had planned on staying there for several more years until it became too much and the money was no longer worth it. – less

Management changes in Glendale, CA, vastly improved the work environment.
Vocational Rehabilitation Consultant (Current Employee), Glendale, AZJanuary 21, 2014
Pros: opportunities for contribution, growth and collaboration; benefits, salaries, job security.
Cons: requires good time management and organizational skills. if you don't have these, you will have difficulty.
I have worked for Unum for 13 years. Management took notice when work environment surveys for the Glendale office fell short a couple of years back. New management was brought in with the skills needed for promoting individual contributions, individual development and building teams. A new approach for staffing cases changed the work environment by – more... fostering good relationships among the business operations managers, benefits specialists, and consultants (Vocational Rehabilitation and Clinical). In the past year and a half a lot of effort went into improving training for new and long-time employees.

As in most cases, the job is what you make of it. There are many opportunities to participate in projects that allow for sharing of knowledge among peers throughout the company or for collaborating with co-workers to make improvements. For vocational rehabilitation consultants the learning opportunities from physicians and nurses that work in the same office are a major perk. In addition, over the past year leadership contributions became more valued and recognized, thanks to new HR leadership.

I recommend working for Unum, especially in the Glendale, CA, office; because it is a stimulating place to work where professionals contribute their expertise and work cooperatively. – less
