    Pros

    HUGE benefits which include 401k match, pension, bonus, commuter benefits, tuition reimbursement, paternity leave, friendly people, clean offices, and so many more. Company just changed 401k policy to start matching on your first day!

    Really haven't noticed many yet.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!!

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

    Pros

    Established company with amazing talent and thoughtful processes and procedures. They care about their employees and have a big focus on talent mindset

    Cons

    Not honest about career development. They string you a long without being truthful. They never want to lose good talent but after a while the 'speeches' become untrustworthy

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I worked there over a decade and it was a great experience. The people, the learning, the flexibility is one of a kind.

    Pros

    Diversity of all types is not just given lip service, and work-life balance is actually exists. "Pru polite" is a real thing - no verbal abuse allowed. And the benefits are great, too.

    Cons

    With so many long-term employees, there can be a last-in, first-out philosophy when downsizing is necessary. Also, this almost 150 year old company is going through a lot of change, all at the same time, which can be very challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the trend toward centralized services, as well as the focus on improving the customer experience.

    I worked at Prudential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are pretty regular, limited overtime in the office (but you can take work home, it's encouraged) and new limited federal regulations may help.

    Cons

    The Newark location is very hard to get to and not safe, the management team breed at Pru, new strategy and ideas are not welcomed. The chairman speaks about respect in the workplace and there really is none. People are afraid of making any suggestions or they will get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management team, transformation is not happening.

    I have been working at Prudential as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    -A welcoming and friendly corporate culture
    -challenges you to make a significant impact and grow your professional skills
    -High retention rate
    -One of the few companies still offering a pension

    Cons

    -selective and strict when it comes to its positions
    -small office cliques tend to form depending on department
    -various departments don't share the same motivation & career focus
    -still areas in the company that are inefficient and ineffective

    Advice to Management

    Try your best to encourage more unison between department cultures and have better tools that can educate employees on the various other mechanisms of how the company operates. It can help out tremendously.
