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

They were transitioning from a policy company to a publicly traded company, so there was great pressure to raise margins and to cut costs in anticipation of the forthcoming IPO in 2001. Fear of layoffs was ever present in the Operations groups as well as among senior execs. brought in to improve their financial results.

Employee - Director

Excellent employer. Many opportunities. Friendly people. Great environment and culture. I really enjoyed my 29 years there.

Employee - Director

Excellent culture. Always strove to do the right thing.

Employee - Director

Intellectually very satisfying. Great culture. Excellent training. A chance to move up and be successful.

Employee - Owner / Founder

I owned a real estate brokerage under the Prudential flag in the Washington DC Metro area for 5 years...we became number one in sales in less than two years despite the real estate market crash...we did over 60 million in residential alone...they did nothing to help us or support us when we need their assistance...we were enormously successful without them and were featured in the Washington Post and all over the news...once they saw our success they came to us and asked us to share our secrets with Brokers all over the country...we told them 'No' emphatically. They only cared about their commission and didn't have a creative marketing bone in their stiff, corporate bodies.They just wanted to rip off our ideas once they saw what we accomplished. They were horrible people. We ended up merging our company just to get away from them.

Employee - Owner / Founder

it was a good 'ol boys club WAY behind the times. Yes..there were women employees but the culture as male dominate...of course, you must keep in my mind we ran our own brokerage and reported to them...that is the only thing that saved us...as long as were making money and paying their commissions for our territory they stayed off our backs...but when we were struggling to make ends meet when the market first crashed they abandoned us. Fortunately, we were more intelligent and daring than any of them so we went around them. Their conventions and corporate seminars were a joke...lacking any kind of creativity, useful information or insights on trends. Their speakers were completely unskilled, short-sighted and painfully boring...a 5 year old would be far more compelling.

Employee - Owner / Founder

I am very pleased to have MY Prudential realty franchise on my resume...we succeeded against all odds both internally and externally and I am very proud. The fact that was a Prudential company was incidental in the end. They profited far more from our accomplishments than from anything they ever did to help us. We set a precedent for marketing on that company that they grudgingly had to acknowledge.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

Awful senior management. Clear favoritism

Employee - Director

Culture changed with the restructuring of the firm. No longer a place to work that was rewarding and building a career. Very upsetting in the changes, had always been told that it was a great place to work and with the demutualization, all changed.

Employee - Director

Was a team building experience until it was demutualized and our group was elminated.

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

Firm does not value its employees

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

Run as a dictatorship. Senior management instills fear in employees.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

While employed at Prudential as a Manager in the Group Health Department, I discovered upon auditing, the legacy systems were not updating employees policies correctly with salary changes. In addition, Prudential was out of compliance in several areas. The most notable was that payroll records were not reconciled correctly under the Group Variable Life product line. I listed 30 risks and communicated my concerns to senior leadership and Prudential's ERISA attorneys. I resigned from Prudential because I was uncomfortable with the risk, legacy systems, and failure to correct.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Although all employees sign a Code of Ethics policy, business ethics are lacking in the Group Health Recordkeeping Dept. Tenured employees are afraid to bring up issues for fear of being terminated. Legacy systems do not talk to each other, resulting in policies not being updated correctly. There are thousands of transactional errors affecting employee records that are not corrected due to no documentation, lack of training, or system breakdown. Prudential is a 43 billion company but cannot spend money to correct their systems. Although concerns were raised to Audit procedures and systems, there was never an audit from the Audit/Risk Department while I was employed. If you are an ethical person and are passionate about doing a good job, Prudential is not the right company for you.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

The values and ethical standards that you uphold will be with you in your career. Your integrity is worth its weight in gold. Do not compromise your integrity for a paycheck. Be an advocate for doing things right.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

They took business from the realtors that were doing business with the REO banks and struck a deal that gave them 1/2 percent and took that from the agents.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

Closed door male oriented culture.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

Infatuated with meetings - agenda to promote minorities, women, LGBT, handicapped - regardless of ability.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

Too much pressure - looked for what was wrong instead of what was right.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Lots of red tape and favoritism
