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

Pros

Leadership is committed to meeting market expectations, but also to the associates who drive that value. Management's tone at the top is that of diversity and inclusion, of ethical practices, and continued improvements. I've never had bad things to say about Prudential.

Cons

As opposed to the company's leaders, local management (mid-level) can be tone deaf and reactive. Tight budgets in one department may lead to quiet layoffs and eliminating talented staff who may have been better utilized. Other areas may have managers who may have been promoted to more senior positions, but never learned how to develop vision and strategy. The result is a wonderful company whose employees experiences' differ greatly depending on the management team. Work-life balance and other factors also vary by job type.

Advice to Management

Managers often get promoted because they are good managers, but at some point the good ones pivot and begin leading. Building a successful team, department, division, segment, or company is about having a vision and executing plans toward it. It's also about getting associates to perform their best by keeping them engaged and inviting them to participate in creative ways. Prudential could do a better job emphasizing that "pivot" to Directors and above, and cultivating an environment where it is implemented consistently.

    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cares about it's employees, good work-life balance (flexible work schedule, telecommuting, etc.), great work culture, very ethical, good fitness center & fitness programs

    Cons

    Pay is probably average at best compared to most companies; should do more promoting from within rather than hiring so many external VP's that don't know the business as well

    Advice to Management

    place more value on employee performance through promotions and larger salary increases
