Executive leadership is not interested in a sustainable or growth strategy. They have a senior VP in charge of supply management who denigrates his staff and forces vendors to use an payment program that costs them an extra 2-3%. The vendors pass the cost back to Unum and the SVP claims 'savings.The CIO is an advocate for 1990 failed business strategies including an "open office" environment which results in a work envirment where there is no privacy or concentration. The newest foreign executive is only interested in short term "wins which do not advance any long term business strategy.

This is true. They attempted to outsource benefits and told the staff it was supplemental staffing but it was basically a pilot program that failed. The Staff was told they weren’t allowed to discuss it with the customers or even internal business partners and those who questioned anything about it ended up without jobs. The members of leadership who are well respected have already jumped ship!
They've already massively offshored their IT department and are now moving on to offshore the benefits department, including short and long term disability. There's no incentive to create a productive work environment when the goal is to only keep enough staff in the states to appear "locally based.". They've instructed employees to not mention the offshoring to clients so upper management can ease them into it.
This is true
