Approves of CEO

I worked at Penna full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

People focused values; committed to its CSR agenda (and in particular, helping young people into employment); flexible benefits package; generally open and transparent management style; development and training framework; gives employees opportunity to stretch and learn new skills.

Cons

Can be too focused on values to detriment of individual performance. Tends to over complicate/over engineer the way it works (it's a circa 400 employee organisation, not 40,000!). Decision making process can be slow.
