    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Prudential has many business opportunities within its US Businesses. Commitment to diversity, innovation, development and work life balance is apparent throughout all of them.

    Cons

    Much like all companies benefits are a huge investment from the employer. Prudential takes benefits seriously and has put together a competitive package for its employees. However, benefits are costly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Leadership is mostly transparent to all levels of employees. Strategy is clear and communication is solid. Leaders of people are encouraged to continually develop their leadership skills. These are the makings of a good company to work for.

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for! Great people, great atmosphere and environment. Also love the location.

    Cons

    The call center structure needs to be restructured. They put too much responsibility on the CSA's to do what a licensed insurance agent should be doing.

    Advice to Management

    Spread out the responsibilities in between teams more or create more teams/roles.

    -Great 401k, employee savings plan, and stock purchase plan

    Cons

    -Work/life balance, long hours are necessary for some projects
    -Limited PTO for new employees
    -High turnover (I've had two bosses leave in a year)
    -Newark offices, while nice, are in borderline terrifying locations

    Advice to Management

    -More transparency with regard to the restructuring plans.
    -Maintain consistent project plans and priorities.
    -Consider having more remote opportunities. The office locations are always a huge issue when talking to people about possibly applying to Prudential.
