Pros

Great pay, got a car for the summer. Lots of overtime and flexible schedule.

Cons

Headquartered in Newark, NJ. If you have been there, I don't need to say more. The Hartford office, where I worked was nicer, but too sketchy for me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of Newark!

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

    Pros

    Prudential 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.

    Cons

    Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    Clean out or revitalize "shared services" functions.
