Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

Look before you leap. Investigate the makeup of the teams and management in the Business Division you are interested in to have an idea whether it is inclusive and what the advancement prospects are.

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

Narrow minded, mgmt is cliq(y), very little mobility as there is little movement within the Sr ranks to move outside the firm (into city) so they often force lateral "cross training" to show sr mgmt that "employees are happy and can find new challenges etc" The resulting talent pool maybbe a bit more diverse but lacks a serious amount of specialists and subject mayter experts in an industry that need just that

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

The people were great but the culture was often apothetic. Aside from making money, mgmt spent most of their time reacting (in often child like narrowminded ways) to Employee Opinion Surveys wihout bithering to figure out ir fix the root causes Mainly, they often listened to the loud minority that would bitch and moan about being worked to hard (or werenjust unhappy with life in general) instead of the silent majority that loved working hard and getting results As a result, they now have committies to explore new committies that will examine the need for new groups..... and there are so many "cooks in the kitchen" during strategic meeting cause every snowflake needs to see how "valued their opinions are" that there are now also committies after every large endevor to figure out what went wrong and whose fault it is (political CYA) instead of just letting a few generals figure out the plan originally and delegate from therefrom

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

The overwhelming PC of the times has overwhelmed the Mgmt of the investment group and they have a hard time managing everyones feelings vs results

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

High number of minority employee turnover due to discrimination

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

As a Harvard grad, I observed significant turnover of minority MBA employees, many who had Harvard MBA degrees. Obviously, they were talented, however, the prudential culture was unwelcoming. Witnessed situation when the #1 management intern was denied a London office placement because he was African-American.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

My professional experience was appreciated, however, the culture had a high negative charge.

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

Politics plays a huge role in the headquarters. Being associated with the "right" group has as much or ore to do with advancement, success, longevity as actual performance. This is not the case at lower levels but it is absolutely the case as one advanced toward senior management.

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

Culture is very political. Spin matters as much as results, often more.

Employee - Vice President (VP, SVP, EVP, etc.)

Do a good job, but play the game.
