    I worked at Prudential full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are all really top notch, high quality professionals. A pleasure to work with, by and large. Prudential "walks the walk" when it comes to developing your self and advancing your career. Their is money, time and it is a management priority to let people take advantage of multiple training opportunities. The benefits are also first rate - excellent medical and dental coverage, and a cash balance pension plan, in addition to a 401-k plan. Overall, a very high quality company to work for. I strongly recommend it.

    Cons

    It can be a bit bureaucratic at times, due to its large size. But this is manageable.
     And sometimes they can get caught up in trying to be all things to all people. But even this mildly negative aspect is really positive, because it shows that they are always moving forward and not content with where they are.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize and focus on the most important deliverable goals. Give more positive feedback to your strong performers.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Prudential (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    2 interviews first one with director of recruiting and managing director second one with management I was actually insulted by the recruiting director after the MD left the room for a few minutes she told me she likes to keep it real that I'm just a candidate and she doesn't have one year to train me after that she decided to hire someone that worked part time as an intern for a few months that just graduated college and that had previously worked at Pizza Hut for the position.
