    I have been working at Prudential full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Leadership is committed to meeting market expectations, but also to the associates who drive that value. Management's tone at the top is that of diversity and inclusion, of ethical practices, and continued improvements. I've never had bad things to say about Prudential.

    Cons

    As opposed to the company's leaders, local management (mid-level) can be tone deaf and reactive. Tight budgets in one department may lead to quiet layoffs and eliminating talented staff who may have been better utilized. Other areas may have managers who may have been promoted to more senior positions, but never learned how to develop vision and strategy. The result is a wonderful company whose employees experiences' differ greatly depending on the management team. Work-life balance and other factors also vary by job type.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers often get promoted because they are good managers, but at some point the good ones pivot and begin leading. Building a successful team, department, division, segment, or company is about having a vision and executing plans toward it. It's also about getting associates to perform their best by keeping them engaged and inviting them to participate in creative ways. Prudential could do a better job emphasizing that "pivot" to Directors and above, and cultivating an environment where it is implemented consistently.
