    I worked at Prudential as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome office culture - it was really like the team was a family. They had so many opportunities to do things together and as an intern, to join in on projects. The work life balance was also awesome and they never overworked you. Even though we weren't at HQ, they had a bunch of intern events to make the experience even better. Events include meeting upper management which was super cool.

    Cons

    My team itself was a little unorganized and I didn't have much work in the beginning, but once you mention something, they really try to include you in more projects. The location (Roseland) wasn't the best because it was quiet, but Newark was really nice.

    I have been working at Prudential full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership training, good bonuses, and great benefits like work from home options, and discounts on consumer purchases. It's easy to transfer within the company if it's a lateral move. There's usually no resistance from management.

    Cons

    Each business group has a different culture and it can be challenging adapting to it or identifying it. It can be difficult to advance, often taking several years to be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management is problematic. They are generally the least receptive to new ideas, accepting diverse perspective or talent development. Senior management gets the big picture, but often middle management does not. More focus should be placed on providing middle management with leadership training.
