    I worked at Prudential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some wonderful committed coworkers and s community feeling

    Cons

    Very intense performance metrics without support of management. By far the worst direct management I've ever had, but better higher up. Unfortunately direct managers are generally who you go to, and many of the first levels are just really bad.

    Advice to Management

    Improve employee support and allow feedback


  10. "Old but Stable"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Prudential full-time

    Pros

    PTO allowance and dental plan benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Both the company's culture and employee population are monolithic. Mobility here is only realistic for actuaries. Everyone else is basically waiting to retire.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many of you. The company is structured like an inverted pyramid. Give your employees water coolers.
