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

    Pros

    There is a real feeling of 1 team. Everyone is really hands on and works together with same end goal...the customer.

    Lots of change and department getting a whole big facelift to bring into the digital world. This brings it's own challenges but those who are willing to grab them have the potential to really go far.

    Also...as with all things new and changing...you have the opportunity to shape how the future looks and you are encouraged to do so.

    Cons

    Systems are inadequate and parking has become a nightmare. Still better than city centre though.

    Advice to Management

    Know your business
    Be more visible....this is senior managers I mean!

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

    Pros

    The UK part of the company's got lots going on. New leadership and new levels of ambition for a business previously treated as a cash cow by it's parent.
    Big opportunities for people to bring expertise to bear on some pretty interesting challenges in many areas.
    Even though the pace is increasing, people are still supportive and friendly.

    Cons

    With lots of change in the industry, there are lots of unknowns and big challenges, without a really clear strategy. A new CEO for the UK (just arrived) should start to provide some clarity.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the employees with some clear priorities. They will get behind you, because most people who work here love the Pru and are very loyal.

    Pros

    one of the nicest places to work. Really nice people

    Cons

    Far too dependent on contractors and consultants from Deloitte

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff and invest in them. Reduce the number of consultants and get the work done from within.
