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

    Pros

    Really looking to evolve process and approaches, always interesting work, very progressive for such a large, older company. If you're a hard worker and really trying to improve the company, management can be incredibly supportive - a lot of them want to do the right thing by their people. Truly hire the best people.

    Cons

    Some expected culture challenges as the company evolves but even the longer term employees have started to really come around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on change as a great thing - keep your high standards for finding great talent

    Pros

    Company made up of principled, responsible, highly competent people. Strong emphasis on innovation and meaningful collaboration. Great work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Stuck between what they were - large, slow, cautious - and where they're headed. Still some friction as change is introduced, but moving in the right direction.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Flexible schedule and alternative work arrangements. Collaborative environment. I have heard contract workers are rarely hired full time.

    Cons

    Focus on cutting costs by out-sourcing or in-sourcing. Management does not effectively share vision. Work life balance issues can be an issue as extended hours and weekends are often worked.

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

    Pros

    Free employee parking and shuttle service between Newark offices.

    Cons

    Draconian human resources practices when hiring and terminating employees from top global banks and asset managers. Highly political and insular culture amongst "Pru-lifers" still surviving in positions of authority.

    Advice to Management

    Stop recruiting talent from world class financial firms. They will become miserable soon after they learn how rigid and insecure many executives in the VP and SVP ranks really are.
