Pros

Friendly people, great hours, room for growth. I worked at Prudential for about four years and had great experiences with almost everyone there. Just one bad apple, but no place is perfect.

Cons

As an insurance company, they can be very conservative (not politically, just risk-wise, e.g., prone to play it safe when it comes to technology).

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to complaints about the few bad apples.

    Pros

    Good work life balance but subject to business unit and manager. This is a strong, stable company to work for as evidenced by many long tenured employees. There are a lot of really good people at this company. Certain benefits are very good.

    Cons

    No continuity between business units. Very political and way too many silos. Low pay raises. Good bonus but subject to fluctuation. Some really ineffective managers crippled by indecision. Too much process. Very conservative. Advancement opportunities are limited despite a "commitment" to talent management.

    Advice to Management

    Demystify and streamline the process behind promotion and recognition. Commit to retention of employees as a priority that trumps attracting new talent. Enterprise wide mobility should be encouraged.
