    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)

    I worked at Prudential plc full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great management, good people, nice work culture. Great experience with the company, I learnt a lot from the management. I was on the Islamic insurance side and felt that the management was fair and always had an open door policy, I could go to them for anything.

    Cons

    Bonuses are not so great, but hey everything else is really good so there is not much of room for complaint. I feel that perhaps there could be more personalized training for employers, and of course there is your usual office politics but nothing that can't be handled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great job so far, if i had an advice is for more internal promotions and trainings as well as better bonuses
