    Pros

    Prudential is a great place for programmers to prove themselves and dive head first into their programming career. In my first month I received an award recognizing my hard work on a project and now I present my work regularly to vice presidents. I'm learning new languages all the time and I'm already designing, coding, and deploying my own software. It took a lot of hard work to get here though. Prudential is a very performance oriented company. Compared to other companies they aren't as concerned about rank and seniority as they are about performance. This gives a huge opportunity for entry level programmers

    Cons

    Newark is a rough area. It's hard to find good housing nearby. Thankfully my commute isn't too long.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making unrealistic, overly optimistic, descriptions of the job to young adults fresh out of college.
