Smart people and solid ethics, but typical bureaucracy in many areas, especially corporate functions.

Vice President (Former Employee)
Hartford, CT

ProsPrudential is very well capitalized and diversified across its multiple businesses and global markets, which few--including many analysts--do not understand or appreciate. This is best demonstrated by its often volatile stock price, despite solid earnings year after year. How many recognize that more than half of Prudential's earnings are from international businesses? From an employee perspective, its benefits and one's colleagues combine with innovative product to provide rewarding and satisfying careers.

ConsCorporate functions can be stultifying. In particular, the lines of business have difficulty maintaining business momentum when they interact with the bureaucracy within human resources, technology, communications, and others. It's not debilitating; it's just unfortunate that there appear to be different and conflicting agendas that impede progress.

Advice to Senior ManagementClean out or revitalize "shared services" functions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
