    Needs to address bullying

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompetitive financial packages and investment in staff. A large company which allows employees room to develop or change their skill set.

    ConsA blind eye is turned to senior managers who enjoy bullying, intimidatory tactics. Work / life balance is dismal in these areas and stress levels very high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCloser attention to, and zero tolerance of, areas where bullying and hierarchical rule is routine. Let's protect Pru 's good name.

    Manager (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsGood Company values, some great people, they invest in their people's training and they have a good renumeration scheme.

    ConsQuality of management can be inconsistent, work life balance can also easily start to erode.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet the performance management system working properly, should be a fantastic incentive for staff, it's not, it's a chore. Get rid of poor performers, no matter their seniority, quickly.

    senior management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsFlexible employer who is fair but demands their pound of flesh. Good staff relations and excellent benefits.

    ConsIt can be very political at senior levels and is a lot more ruthless at these levels. Heavily regulated which can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Senior Managementremove some of the politics. Encourage people to do the best for the company not what is just right for them.

    temp service desk agent

    IT Service Desk Agent (Current Employee) Singapore (Singapore)

    Pros- Pay is not bad as a temp who have not graduated from university, and OT are paid accurately by the agency.
    - Required to work on weekends but is compensated by good remuneration.

    Cons- May meet difficult financial consultants but you will get the hang of handling them
    - Everyone is too busy to teach the newcomers, so you will feel lost as a temp during the first two weeks. Thereafter you'll know how things work.
    - Office politics

    Extremely hierarchical with outdated management style

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsRelatively good benefits including pension and Share options.

    ConsHighly sexist and very hierarchical organization that does not support employee development or growth. Promotions will likely need to be sought outside the company. Culture of blame, and lack of accountability on the part of Directors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore focus needs to be put on having senior executives engage with staff, to increase employee morale, and offer more opportunity for 360 degree feedback to hold managers accountable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
