    Pros

    Can make decent money. Good benefits employee match and low health care costs.

    Cons

    Very much who you know, Very controlling... Will not tell you you did a good job, ever...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to control all aspects of employee life. Hire competent management...Some managers not competent at all... Hires have been promoted with only basic knowledge of life let alone finance... Offices given to incompetents only to fire them later because basic functions of supervisory role could not be performed...

    Customer service representative

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Prudential Annuities Life Assurance

    Pros

    The company is very focused on a work life balance. Once you have put your time in you have the ability to work remotely and have a flexible schedule. There are many incentive programs and opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    There is an extreme focus on the customer and on metrics. Some of the metrics that are used to measure performance can be unreasonable. There is a larger level of middle management presents that can make the job a little difficult.

  7.  

    Lack employee commitment. too much politics and big egos.

    I worked at Prudential Annuities Life Assurance full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company, with wide range of financial products and service which is great for the clients. Some department area's offer summer hours if you can compress 40 work hours into 4 days. However, you must be on call.

    Cons

    Too many egos get in the way of getting work done. Nearly impossible to manage upwards. Feathers get ruffled very easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out of the office and really meet the employees of the company. These are the people doing the work for Prudential often forgotten because they're not in management.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Pay is not good and they like to give you the illusion of opportunities being available to you but its not really the case. They are hiring overseas like crazy and its just a matter of time before that position is eliminated.

    Pros

    Very sales and marketing focused. Great competititve products. Very good benefits. Generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Somewhat bureaucratic. Not for the entrepreneurially minded. Hard to get promoted. Comp is at market, no better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move people around more and give them opportunities. There are too many people with long tenures that are blocking some of the newer talent from moving up.
