Prudential – Why Work For Us?


When John Fairfield Dryden founded Prudential in 1875, he did so with a clear purpose: making life insurance affordable for working class families. It’s an ideal that has run through every phase of our company’s history.

Since then, our commitment to helping individual and institutional clients meet their financial challenges has grown to include a robust offering of products and services, each keyed to delivering strength and security.

From annuities and retirement-related services to mutual funds and investment management, Prudential today stands at the leading edge of the financial services category.


At Prudential, we believe a diverse and inclusive workforce is about more than simply doing the right thing.

It’s also about maintaining a distinct competitive advantage, one that helps us deeply understand the needs of our market -- and fuels innovations tied directly to those needs.

Bring your unique voice, talent and perspectives to Prudential.


Prudential understands that generating a financial return and advancing social goals are not mutually exclusive. We believe that all individuals should have the ability to dream big and realize their aspirations. But too often, barriers to economic success derail people's progress on their goals.

We bring our financial expertise and resources, as well as the time and talent of our associates, to support initiatives that promote financial and social mobility, and can make meaningful differences and improve lives.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Scranton, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Prudential (Scranton, PA).


    I was interviewed by three other managers for a manager position. I was dissapointed that no director or VP was present. Neither manager described the actual job. It was very generic and I was over qualified based and much more professional than the actual interviewers

    Interview Questions

    • All generic questions. As a current manager, I could have just interviewed myself for the job.   Answer Question
