    I worked at Prudential full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The benefits and work/life balance. Management is very supportive of work/life balance including telecommuting, occasional work from home, varied schedule, work in an alternate location, etc. Senior Management is very strong, as evidenced by Prudential's journey through the 2008 financial crisis.

    Cons

    Quick to hire and quick to fire. Prudential is very overfunded in their pension, so they are not hesitant to do lay offs and pay out severance. Most of the time, this occurs because you happen to be in the wrong business unit, or organization. Or.... your work is outsourced. What they don't do, is try to get you placed in anticipation of a lay off. Recently over 100 were laid off, yet there were over 600 jobs advertised internally. This is clearly an opportunity for HR.

    I worked at Prudential full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Prudential was an excellent place to work. They value diversity. They respect all employees. They place ethical behavior & practices in high regard. They instill in you the importance and value in respecting Customers. I worked there for 15 years and grew to understand, respect, and appreciate them as a company. I would highly recommend seeking them out if you feel you would be a good fit.

    Cons

    Things sometimes take time to change. Think of the analogy of the time and effort it takes to take a huge ocean liner to change course. Certain things can and must get done quickly. However many things take a fair amount of time to come around and change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue being open to creative and even divergent thinkers and their opinions. Genius was never found standing in line - following the pack. Genius contributions are often found in places (people) with the rough edges. "It's the grain of sand, the irritant, that stimulates the pearl." Keep that in mind.
