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

Pros

Some really strong and progressive leaders that offer you a lot of autonomy provided you perform good work

Cons

If you are unlucky and get a bad manager with a bad HR rep, you might be a good performer and still be treated poorly.

Advice to Management

Listen to the feedback of leaders with successful track records. Get over your ego and find better ways to accomplish your goals...which means find better operational efficiencies and ways to treat your people.

    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Handful of colleagues that you can relate to.
    Company business model and business ethic is good.
    Bloated and trickery bonus structure.
    Just average pay structure.

    Cons

    Manager Retaliation, bogus feedback structure. Double tongue colleagues and extremely hard to work with sometimes. Senior leadership talks about innovation, but practically going downhill.
    Immediate management silos incapable of understanding technical innovative concepts and go with the team culture that look upon no where but down.

    Extremely inefficient work environment, all talks but no time to work,. Very stressful work ethic but not very low throughput.

    95% of work load is delegated offshore resources with limited skills. All on shore employees are well known to play politics but not real work. Too much finger pointing, a good amount work time is spent on blame game and try to reduce the blame on self. Zero team concept.
    Hard to believe I ever accepted a position with this strangely pivoted company in terms of politics and work culture.

    Good place to blunt whatever technical skills you may have., seriously!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management silos that just don't appreciate innovation. Get technical mangers who understand technical concepts, innovation and true people skills, without completely depend on team silos who just play politics. Build a work environment that people appreciate each other.

    Introduce true feedback that has equal weight regardless whether comes from manger or an employee report to the manger without there tenure with the company. Feedbacks should be transparent should to be open to some degree, no hidden games taking fire under.

    Don't just talk innovation, try to at least start moving in that direction.
