Pros

Diversity and work/life balance is emphasized greatly. Free parking and a ton of vaction days are granted each year. commuting to the Newark offices is very easy and connected through Penn Station Newark. Prudential fosters internal growth for all employees. Many of the current executives and "higher-ups" have started from the bottem and worked their way to the top. Educaiton and hard work is essential to succeed at Prudential for laziness is exposed very easiely. Tuition reimbursement is also another great benefit offered to employees and Rutgers is walking distance. Also, the new Prudential center is directly across the street and makes a good night out for events.

Salary and bonus is low compared to other financial fimrs

    Pros

    Solid financial company prepared to weather difficult times. Formal programs for time off and work life balance. No drama, calm personalities working in a professional manner. Company provides a wide range of good voluntary benefits. There is an environment of respect among peers and from managers to subordinates. There is open communications from senior management regarding the state of the business. Is an innovator in terms of adapting new technologies and streamlining the way business is conducted. Efforts are being made to remove the jargon and unfrienfly language from the company communications. HR support is available if needed and provided in confidence.

    Cons

    Leadership examples do not reinforce the time off and work-life balance programs. Even though the written policies emphasize the importance of work-life balance, the examples set by many managers tend to discourage people from taking advantage of the policies. Lack of clear direction from middle management. Projects are often begun with insufficient and even inaccurate information. Too much emphasis is placed on meeting deadlines versus actually having all the information to execute well. A high degree of siloing makes it hard to get the big picture view of a project. There is an unspoken push to have people take on too many projects and agree to unreasonable deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Instruct middle managers to actively support time off and work-life balance policies. Clarify the goal of projects before they begin. Provide accurate information on the execution of the projects.
