Great people, but clear communication from leadership will vary
Employee (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNAugust 15, 2017
I love working with everyone here, and the work is rewarding. Leadership clarity can be spotty. Some facilities are out dated as well. But they are working hard on that now to update work spaces.
Benefits are good but pay scale is barely competitive.
Pros
In house café and gym
Cons
Pay scale is on low end

High stress, overworked
Sr Intake Specialist (Former Employee) –  Portland, MEAugust 11, 2017
Unum wants to get all the young kids out of college into the company and phase out the long term employees and will come up with any excuse to do so. Extreme micromanaging, unfairness, you are looked at as a number. All that is cared about is numbers. To succeed you need to be a favorite, don't take 3 minutes outside of your break or you will be spoken too and be careful what you say and who you say it too as they will terminate you on a whim as many of my coworkers were.
Pros
Benefits and PTO
Cons
Repetitive, management favorites, walking on eggshells, boring

The lack of ability to perform this job from home is a big drawback, especially when compared to competitors in the industry. It deprives UNUM of many talented employees.

Work/life balance is amazing
Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNJuly 28, 2017

A company that causes a lot of stress in the work environment. The company promotes work/life balance but it never occurs due to the work load and forced hours.

Pigeon holed!
Senior Programmer / Analyst (Former Employee) –  Portland, MEJuly 10, 2017
When you work for a large corporation, everybody tends to get "pigeon holed" into a specific job. Unfortunately this doesn't allow individuals to acheive their goals.
Pros
They understand the home / work balance
Cons
Ability to get paid for doing next to nothing!

New Case Business Specialist (Current Employee) –  Portland, MEJuly 3, 2017
Unum is a great company to work for. What impresses me the most is the longevity of so many of the employees and how many colleagues I respect have been able to carve out a successful career from themselves.

Decision makers and business strategists are always looking for ways to stay competitive while adressing customers' needs. They are a very customer centric company.

It really depends on who your Manager is, and I had too many to count. You either have to conform and be very flexible to different management styles, or you may have difficulties.
Pros

Management could use some work
