Satisfactory place to work with good work environment and okay salaries and benefits.

Senior Investment Associate (Current Employee)
Newark, NJ (US)

I have been working at Prudential full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCoworkers are good to work with, Can move around the company very easily. Training is efficient and there a lot of areas that you can self improve within the company.

ConsPromotion has been hard. Salary could be higher per level. Bonuses are horrible. However, I heard that all that depends on the group/department you work in. Perhaps, I'm just in the wrong group.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
