    They need to transfer from task-focus to people-focus asap.

    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.

    I have been working at Prudential plc full-time for more than 10 years

    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 for less than a 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

    I have been working at Prudential plc

    Pros

    The treatment of the staff by the HR is excellent and a good demonstration of it's caring ethos towards the staff though the same cannot be said of the management of the company.

    Cons

    Long working hours and a very demanding place - which at times may compromise your work-life balance. The compensation may be fair but the bonus payout leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relook at the ratio of male-female workforce - this may yet impact on the overall morale of the staff, particularly those on the mid management side.
