I have been working at Prudential plc

Pros

Good regional network, federated model so local entities are relatively independent, and yet able to leverage on expertise across the region.

Cons

Generally, local business has poor human resource management with insufficient attention towards on executive training and development, or cross-placements.
Promotions are handed out based on years of service, or to fill out gaps at the top, rather than assessment of an individual's real competency or capability to lead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leverage on Prudential's global footprint - across insurance and asset management - in order to groom and grow your talent pool.

    Pros

    Can be very flexible around location of work, working from home is acceptable for example

    Cons

    Big organisation with not much devolved decision making power. Tendency towards blame culture prevents people from being prepared to go out on a limb

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't have the time to consider the small things, give people the confidence to deal with them on your behalf.
