It's okay...

General IT (Current Employee)

ProsPenson has an interesting mix of people. There's never a dull moment because priorities constantly shift. For the most part, people work in teams and it's not cutthroat.

Management is well-intentioned, and I think they do want what's best for employees.

ConsOverall, working in IT can be frustrating because bureaucracy inhibits accomplishment.

Upper management has made some tactical errors which have limited the companies profitability. Unfortunately, this has negatively impacted employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
