    Pros

    Very good salary, bonus, benefits, etc. Very entreprenurial atmosphere, often willing to let you go "off topic" a bit to work on other areas of interest

    Cons

    Pretty few in reality, runs a bit lean on staff sometimes.

    Former Intern - Finance Intern in Newark, NJ

    I worked at Prudential as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing senior management exposure throughout the program. Really quality internship experience, lots of training throughout the summer. My "intern position" felt like an actual job. HUGE focus on team work and talent development. Just a really great environment to work in. Relaxed, but competitive. Lots of opportunity for personal growth. Sign-on bonus for interns, plus good pay and overtime. I met the CFO, CEO, and many high level executives.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Some people in the program were family members of employees.
