    Needs to address bullying

    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.

    Good Company values, some great people, they invest in their people's training and they have a good renumeration scheme.

    Quality of management can be inconsistent, work life balance can also easily start to erode.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the performance management system working properly, should be a fantastic incentive for staff, it's not, it's a chore. Get rid of poor performers, no matter their seniority, quickly.
