I worked at Penn Mutual full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are often free pretzels. If you like an hourly, no take home work kind of job, it's a good place. Good commute if you don't want to go into Philly. Cafeteria and small gym in the building. It is not high pressure at all, there is very little stress. Nice people that talk and eat a lot.

Cons

Management and associates have no decision making power, its only made at the very top. The executives are so out of touch with reality, yet they keep pretending they care, keep making bad decisions - especially about the IT projects that are needed. They do what salespeople want only, not the actual company needs. Ethics are questionable. No HR department to speak of tells you something. Lots of meetings, very little innovation or productivity. There are no metrics, nobody is really measured on their jobs, so its frustrating if you are 30 something looking to actually advance/learn/get recognized for real results.

Advice to Management

You really need a head of Human Resources to understand attracting, management and retaining talent. Youre corporate communications are terrible - get a new writer that understands people. Theres a lot of inequity - hard workers get a paper certificate award, while inept workers get the same 1% raise as everyone else. People at the lower levels have really good ideas - ask for them.
