    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    It's a relaxed work environment and leaves you good time to focus on your other career plans - particularly continuing education. Plus the company provides good support for Actuarial education.

    Cons

    The career growth is rather slow and rigid.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a market competitive study support for Actuarial.


  2. "Hard to generalise."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Leading player in Asia - huge variety in market development/opportunities/challenges as Prudential has insurance and funds businesses in 12-13 markets, from Middle East, through to developing markets like Vietnam and mature markets like Korea and Hong Kong. There are also JVs with major financial groups in China and India. Opportunities for a wide range of market/business experience

    Cons

    Politics and frequent re-organisations. Some markets/functions have very talented and inspiring leaders/staff, but others are consumed by politics. Office can be very clique-y and gossipy. Also, expected to be on call 24-hours (though this depends on team/boss)

    Advice to Management

    More objective and constructive advice and help with career. Right now, it is hard to generalise the experience because it seems like it really varies by department. Maybe more accountability for senior management would create a fairer and more inclusive environment overall.
