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

    Pros

    Stable company, somewhat good salary

    Cons

    No progression, leadership just wastes your time, never had a development conversation nor they tried to develop me. They do not know what they want and it is very frustrating

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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!

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Service Provider in London, England (UK)
    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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Could do with a cultural shift, very old school, senior management team less diverse than previously

    Advice to Management

    More needs to be done to embed any cultural shift

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Prudential plc full-time

    Pros

    Can get some good experience. Will grant a reasonable amount of on-the-job responsibility. Fairly secure place of employment. Some good colleagues. Better benefits at higher grades.

    Cons

    Benefit package is poor, flexible benefits are mostly worthless, pay rises are negligible. Staff pension for newer employees is inadequate. Considerable company success does not filter down beyond sales/managerial. Structure is very flat with limited opportunity for progression. Ongoing piecemeal offshoring of roles. Hierarchical/deferential mindset. Poor location with over-stretched facilities/parking. Critical functions are outsourced makes for slow progress of change.

    Probably the most beautiful building I've ever worked at .

    Cons

    None really . Everyone was professional and I only left to an injury .
