Forget what you think you know about financial institutions. At Penn Mutual, there’s nary a dull gray suit in sight.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The award-winning company has been quietly pushing the envelope with fresh, tech-first approaches to insurance services since 1847. And while that may raise a few eyebrows of skeptical technologists, Penn Mutual is living proof that a company with a long history can be on the cutting edge of technology.

Even with a long history, the organization always has an eye toward the future. Penn Mutual remains steadfast when it comes to its mission of protecting families and businesses, but does so using new, advanced technology. So while the ideals of the company remain classic, the delivery is always cutting-edge.

From an associate standpoint, not only do Penn Mutual’s people have the chance to get their hands on the newest tech, they’re also recognized for their contributions. The transparent nature of the company ensures that everyone, straight up to the highest level, knows who you are and recognizes—often publicly—the impact you’ve made.

As an organization whose mission is based around taking care of family, Penn Mutual walks the walk internally by providing a work-life balance that benefits everyone. There are no family sacrifices required to get ahead. Associates work smart and are valued for their contributions.

Additional perks include an onsite fitness center, a café, a subsidized masseuse, wellness commitment opportunities and 8 hours for community outreach projects. And to tip the scales just a touch more, did we mention all the snacks?
