Pros

Prudential has plenty of opportunities for growth. It is a huge Fortune 500 company that deals with Insurance, Retirement Planning and Annuities. There are always positions opening up so as long as you work hard and are dedicated to your work you will have plenty of opportunities to grow within the company. Also the company looks mainly to hire from within. They also offer an excellent benefits package and give many vacation and personal days. You may be asked to work extra hours during busy periods but it is not too bad. I would def reccomend other ppl look to get a job here.

Cons

Since Prudential is such a large company, often times you can get looked over if you do not make yourself known. If you are the type of person that just does their work and leaves the office, it will be difficult to advance with this company. You have to be proactive while working here. Ppl will not notice you if you do not make your self known. Also, the salary they offer is not great. It is not bad, it is pretty much industry average, nothing more nothing less. So if you want that huge payday, look some where else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would tell senior management to not play favorites and consider all employees for promotions. Often times, right when someone gets hired, you can tell they will make it far in the company because of the favoritism that they are showed by senior management.

    Sometimes there are too many things happening all at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to push all projects through in the absolute shortest amount of time.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. Salary is competitive.

    Cons

    Challenging for a minority to become management. 100% non minority in management in the UW side. Favortism involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This problem is at the Director level. Senior Management should try to find out why there are no minority in management positions. Salary is fine benefits are above average. But why is there not even 1 minority in management in the UW department?
