    I worked at Prudential plc

    Pros

    Can be very flexible around location of work, working from home is acceptable for example

    Cons

    Big organisation with not much devolved decision making power. Tendency towards blame culture prevents people from being prepared to go out on a limb

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't have the time to consider the small things, give people the confidence to deal with them on your behalf.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get 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.

    I have been working at Prudential plc as a contractor (less than an year)

    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
