    Pros

    Steady, market leading, and with a secure future. Prepared to be innovative in the use of technology but with a large legacy IT estate to contend with.

    Cons

    Strategic change management still grappling with cloud and mobile priorities (slow to secure investment from the business board).

    Advice to Management

    Invest in mobile and cloud capabilities asap!

    Former Employee - Service Provider in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and flexibility. Lots of good people.

    Cons

    Lots of management being brought in with a cut throat mentality led to a big loss of good and talented people either through compulsory or voluntary redundancy (as morale dropped to an all time low). Poor decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the people who actually do the work before hacking away at structure to 'improve' things. Yes, change can be good but there are ways to do this by working with people rather than just assuming everyone is a resource.

    Flexible, option to buy up to 33 days annual leave, good pension and share schemes, encourage internal promotions, supportive colleagues and managers.
