Company Culture

Too much politics. Rude coworkers. You can be expected to attend multiple telephonic meetings in parallel which is ridiculous. There will be regular meetings on Saturday mornings -- you weekend begins with work.

Support from management

Management is supportive as long as you are up to your neck in your work. Management is very discriminating and doesn't keep promises.

Teamwork

Too much politics. Some team member have no respect for others.

Company Culture

I've left and come back to Prudential (4) four times. Back then (80s and 90s), I thought Other companies offered similar experiences.

Prudential used to "care"... that's the business they were in then. Employees were Talent... all employees, not just Management. PRU took pride, interest and invested in Employees and actually invited diverse Talent. Now, the slogan is "Bring your challenges" (says a lot).

Employees are nothing more than billable resources used to energize Prudential's archaic, robotic practices and bureaucratic environment.

Unrealistic deadlines and demands for metrics are pushed down from Leadership and you are not allowed to question or ask questions. Middle Management takes credit for a job well done by subordinates, but never the blame. And any "redos" better be faster and cheaper.

So, Creators, Innovators, Visionaries and Modern Thinkers need not apply, well... unless you need really good benefits.

Pru is not only one of those elite “Companies Too Big To Fail“, it's also too big to care or remember the mission and motivation Prudential was founded upon.

R.I.P. John F. Dryden.....R.I.P. "The Rock"

Support from management

You have management's full support if you can trick them into thinking something was their idea and they will be recognized for your credit and hard work.
