    Pros

    Pays well, even at an entry level. I’ve only been here a month, but I’ve never been so happy and it’s because I really enjoy working for this company. Co workers are very friendly and outgoing. Managers are extremely professional and appreciative of their employees. Very positive environment, staff members aren’t petty backstabbing drama queens like many in the workplace are these days.

    The workflow is fast paced which makes the day go by really fast. There’s an on-site gym free to full time employees that can be used during lunch breaks which are an hour long (plus an extra 15 minutes whenever you use the gym or exercise on site). There’s an on site cafe and a small newsstand with snacks, beverages and magazines. Currently they are in the process of renovating the headquarters building for expansion purposes.

    All full time employees are eligible for medical benefits (which are AMAZING btw) at their date of hire. There are about 16 PTO days given for each year in addition to the option to purchase up to 5 extra days during open enrollment. Supervisors are flexible when it comes to staff needing to leave early for appointments or other obligations.

    I’ve seen a lot of reviews on this site from people who claim that there’s no advancement opportunities, which is far from the truth. In the first few weeks that I’ve worked for this company I have seen numerous co-workers be promoted, and they actually have a mentor program where you can shadow employees in higher positions or different departments of interest. PHLY also supports several non profit agencies, has various fundraisers literally every single day, and gives every employee a full paid day to volunteer for any cause of choice.

    Companies who treat their employees with dignity, appreciation, and respect are very hard to come by in the current job market. PHLY goes above and beyond when it comes to their employee satisfaction, they strongly encourage feedback and suggestions. Many of my coworkers have been there 10+ years and the overall turnover rate is extremely low. They also provide work from home options for employees and flexible scheduling options.

    So far I’ve had an amazing experience with PHLY and I plan to spend the rest of my career with them. I am extremely grateful for the positive work-life balance they allow me to have. Also, their unlimited free coffee is delicious!

    Cons

    My computer freezes for a few seconds here and there throughout the day. That’s literally the only issue that I’ve had so far.

    Advice to Management

    Update the computers and network technologies.

    Pros

    The atmosphere at Philadelphia is exactly what is expected - a positive, caring insurance agency running a world class insurance company. Management trusts employees to do their best. There is an awareness and adherence to work-life balance. After 30 years in the business, the difference is palpable.

    Cons

    To be honest, the company works so hard to treat us well and fairly that I want to work too hard in exchange.

    Advice to Management

    None. How the company operates its Claim department is on the internet. It is unique and has been successful. Continue to show us trust and respect to perpetuate the success.

    Pros

    Low stress job that is easily navigated.

    Cons

    Rigid 8:30-5 hours with little wiggle room. It also seems like everyone is doing the bare minimum of work and looking to pass the job on to the next person.

    Advice to Management

    Inspire creativity and innovation
