Current Employee - Strategy in Newark, NY

I have been working at Prudential full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Strong commitment to social causes, both in and out of the company; great benefits relative to other large companies; decent pay for flexible hours; access to very senior leaders can be possible if you are in the right role and show capability.

Cons

Newark is not that pleasant; very political organization - your bonus and advancement can depend on whose butt you kiss; they are a dinosaur when it comes to technology; low performers can hide and stick around because people committee everything to death.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everyone can be a manager of people - please recognize that a poor manager can cause terrible shockwaves and demotivate even the most talented employees. If you really want to be known for talent, allow your feedback process to weed out bad managers (360 degree feedback would help). That doesn't mean they are bad workers, just should not be supervising people.
