You do get lost in the crowd due to the size of the company. Lot of competition.

    Pros

    Compensation (i.e. bonus) & Benefits (i.e. Health, Paid-Time-Off (PTO))

    Cons

    Lack of or unknown clear path to advancement. Technical expertise is not rewarded as a 'career path' therefore very technically component individuals remain in the same job titles for years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise a technical career path; recognize & reward for proficient expertise.

    Pros

    Prudential is great at investing on your future development. Under this economic conditions it is very hard to still find companies that offer good benefits, professional growth and work -life balance. It is true that each business has a different culture and it depends where are you at. In my experience, the culture has a lot to do with how happy you are at work. In my current division they foster professional growth, it's all in your hands and what you want to make out of it is all in yr hands. Senior Management shares what is going on in the market and within the company. Tuition reimbursement is part of the benefits too. Pru has set in place recognition programs that foster a great work environment and promote recognition within peers. The compensation may not be as high at the beginning, bu as you gain experience and get more credentials, more doors will open for you and you'll get more money. Also, the work /balance that they offer is a big plus. I feel that Pru really cares about employees and helps communities all over. Newark will be something very different if Pru wouldn't be there. All in all, I love working for a company that does so much good to the community.

    Cons

    The pay can be lower at entry-level. Some of the Managers/Directors lack managing experience, so in general they are not the best managing. As I said before it depends of the location and the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what is right, delegate managing people to Managers/Directors that can handle it. Not everyone is cut to do that job.
