    Pros

    I cannot think of any reason to work here.

    Cons

    The professional liability claims department is such a mess. Micro management and no real authority given to adjusters makes the job almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Start all over with a completely new management team.

    I worked at Philadelphia Insurance Companies full-time

    Pros

    Salary was adequate and competitive with other carriers.

    Cons

    The atmosphere in claims was toxic. Experience and knowledge of the business meant nothing to them. Big Brother was watching at all times.

    Pros

    They care about their employees. They give you long lunches to work out and time off to volunteer. Opportunities for advancement. Senior management is accessible.

    Cons

    They pay less than other similar positions at larger companies. They cut medical insurance coverage because of over-use. Also, bonus structure is heavily dependent on success of region instead of individual performance.

    I have been working at Philadelphia Insurance Companies full-time

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance.

     - Solid company that has grown considerably in the past 5 years, while maintaining mostly solid underwriting principles.

    - Eligible for bonuses based on company performances

    - Good benefits, PTO

    - Management cares about employees.

    - Cafeteria, some locations also have gym

    - Has happy hours, quarterly lunches, other activities to keep employees engaged

    - Active in volunteering, giving back to the community

    Cons

    - Depending on your manager & department, micromanagement.

    - Marketing has pull in underwriting decisions.

    - Very few chances for advancement. The preference seems to be hiring college talent for new marketing and underwriting positions. In general there tends to be nepotism with filling new positions as well. Most of the new people in our region are related to current Phly people (including management) or are related to some of the bigger insurance agents we work with. Some of these people bring no applicable work experience or don't carry requirements that other people would have to have to fill the same position. Talented people tend to leave for better opportunities because of this and there is quite a bit of turnover for Account Executives.

    - Lower pay than rest of industry for similar positions

    Advice to Management

    - Overall great job

    - Feedback should be provided for managers at review. Currently no system to show how managers are doing besides raw production numbers

    - Look to hire internal talent for promotion first
