    Pros

    Great company, great benefits, good people. This is an excellent job for someone who is looking to learn about the basics of the financial services industry. Just like most jobs it is what you make of it.

    Cons

    There is way too much middle management that puts a ceiling in place for the rest of the employees. Unless you are good at playing the corporate game you will not advance no matter how good you agreed at your position. This position has a shelf life and is not a career.

    Advice to Management

    In order to achieve the corporate goal of 13 in 13 for ROE we need to look at our organizational structure and the endless layers of management and yellow tape it takes to get the simplest thing done.

    I worked at Prudential full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits. Expensive but excellent choices. The perks are nice too... lots of nice to haves. If your in a small area, really good at your job you can stay in the position forever. There are hardly and terminations for cause.

    Cons

    People stay in their jobs for too long so there's very new talent. It's not unusaual to see employees celebrating 30,35 years and have 6 or 7 of these within one department. This makes it very difficult to move around within the company at mid-management levels. Also posting into new positions is almost impossible. Hiring managers already have a candidate identified and will interview others just as a matter of process. It's very easy to get stuck in a position and have no where to go except to leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Create some structured career paths so that employees are not sitting in the same positions for 30+ years. Cross train, rotate people etc.
