    Pros

    None if you end up in a department running under the old boy network.

    Cons

    I am continually amazed by the old fashioned pecking order in existence here, where insufficient toadying and imagined slights are seized upon and petty revenge plotted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade to modern, dynamic leaders with people skills who are too productively busy to spend time sulking and plotting over their expensive lunches on expenses.

    Needs to address bullying

    I have been working at Prudential plc

    Pros

    Competitive financial packages and investment in staff. A large company which allows employees room to develop or change their skill set.

    Cons

    A blind eye is turned to senior managers who enjoy bullying, intimidatory tactics. Work / life balance is dismal in these areas and stress levels very high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Closer attention to, and zero tolerance of, areas where bullying and hierarchical rule is routine. Let's protect Pru 's good name.
