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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Prudential (Newark, NJ).


    The process started with a brief phone call with HR, followed by a brief phone interview with the hiring manager. I was contacted by HR to set up an in person interview with the hiring manager and several team members both junior and senior. The in person meetings lasted over 6 hours. The process was smooth, and the feedback seemed to be extremely positive. The hiring manager laid out the remaining part of the process and stated that I was a clear finalist. Some other positive feedback came from senior members responding to my thank you emails. All the face to face meetings went extremely well and I was told my next/final steps would be meeting the head of the group etc in the coming weeks. About a week and a half later I was asked to complete behavioral, verbal, and math assessment tests. I thought they went well. After 6 weeks went by, I finally heard that they were going with another candidate. I have heard stories from other people who shared similar experiences. I will never pursue an opportunity at this firm ever again. It is truly insulting the way things were handled, as well as eye opening to see how the team and company actually operates. For a firm that prides themselves on hiring people that exhibit integrity, this could not be farther from the truth. It is clear they are a lower tier investment firm that will suffer down the road. It is also important to note that there are several other more prestigious firms out there, that treat candidates and employees with respect.
