I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work/Life balance is excellent, benefits are also good, and the networking organizations within the company are worth the time and effort, management training is good - however, I think there can be more training for associates transitioning into new roles.

Cons

Pay is too low for middle management and project management positions, and the company is so very big, its easy to lose sight of the big picture.

Advice to Management

None - if I could be doing a better job than they are - I would do it!

    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company is proactive in continual training and education in leadership development. I believe the products that Prudential promotes are timely and necessary in today's economic environment. There is much education across the board in educating employees about the workings of the products.

    Cons

    There are many layers to the management system. I think this impedes communication. Some managers need training in how to be managers. Not all are equipped to be in the positions they are in to be most effective. The company is also a bit slow in keeping up with technology as far as equipment goes.

    Advice to Management

    Less tiers in managers/management; less meetings, up-to-date equipment, better communication
