    I have been working at Prudential full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with Prudential for two months. I am glad I made the move. I was concerned when I read reviews about reorganizations but it is not a company looking to shrink. They are more shifting to stay inline with the industry.

    Cons

    It can be confusing navigating your way the first few weeks, but coworkers are great for helping you to figure things out.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexibility, development opportunities, teamwork, a true drive for results.

    Cons

    Deep, stratified, and fossilized politics and hierarchy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to clear out the dead wood at the top, and bring more disruptors from the outside world.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and the company encourages employees to continue to train and develop as an employee. Corporate culture is very ethical. The CEO is very personable and a great leader.

    Cons

    Some areas of the company are more prone to reorganization than others. Corporate culture can vary from building to building as well as management philosophy. In the past the company has not had the most current technology available to employees as far as computers or software are concerned but changes began in late 2016 to address this. This structure for how bonuses are distributed by division and department is confusing and not always fair.

    Pros

    location, location, location; pay and benefits

    Cons

    horrible on-boarding processes; poor customer service office in ILI

    Advice to Management

    Put the word service back into customer service and human back into human resources. Train frontline staff in the customer office how to be more responsive and empathetic; and implement a better on-boarding process to ensure new staff fully understand company policies so that there is no room for speculation or ambiguity. Do not rely solely on technology and webinars to present policies to new staff. In person training or workshops are better practices.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Takes care of employees. Flexible working arrangements. 401k matching and pension plan. Most coworkers are cooperative and friendly.

    Cons

    Company is trying to go through some digital transformation but cutting edge research work are mostly initiated from bottom not from high level senior management, which cause a lot of initiatives being put on hold because of low adoption.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend senior management being more forward thinking and initiating more projects to keep up with the industry and drive business adoption of modern transformation.
