Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

They'd have to be great sales person

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

SELL SELL SELL SELL type culture.

Employee - Director

Toxic, inward looking and silo. Focus on the present, no building for the future

Employee - Director

Looks a lot better on the outside , based on past glory days. Increasingly myopic internally, bodes not so good if you are looking to grow. Conservative and risk averse. Good place to subsist until retirement, though

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

Constant reorganizations around personalities vs the business needs. A select few continue to rearrange the deck chairs for their own security and wealth centralization. Their own version of the "1%'ers"

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Extremely rigid/inflexible work environment. Additionally, the leadership team did not engage with other levels and certainly did not provide clear goals and objectives for the employee base. Have worked at six different companies and this was among the worst professional experiences that I have had.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Very inflexible place to work.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

Prior to working at the company my impression of Prudential was that it was a well respected large company. However, I was not impressed with my experience working there and would not recommend it anyone. I have worked at a handful of companies and this clearly ranks among the worst places that I have worked. Very stiff and rigid work environment with minimal direction from the leadership team.

Employee - Director

Constant reorganization and change in direction. Senior Leadership is not focused on the customer experience, only the bottom line.

Employee - Director

Leaders more focused on promoting themselves and less about the development of their staff.

Employee - Director

Prudential has a prestigious name in the marketplace. Their competitors have quickly closed any gaps and Prudential is lagging behind with no original ideas on change.

Employee - Director

The department I worked in was merged into another department, under that manager, who took nearly a year to clean house - getting rid of all of the Director-level staff from the merged. From the outset we were objects of ridicule in staff meetings, poor performance reviews (but not poor reviews under former management). Her management style was condoned by her management, apparent from her several promotions, before and after my time there. The experience turned a good job into a nightmare.

Employee - Director

Favoritism, exclusionary, arbitrary.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

I was restructured. The way the situation was handled by human resources and management left a bad taste in my mouth.

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

Company has become mean-spirited; I think they mistake "toughness" for meanness.

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

Very clique oriented work culture.

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

Prudential was a great place to work - I think that the demutualization brought a very different (negative) culture to the environment - more selfish and less team oriented.

Employee - Manager / Senior Manager

I worked there about 15 years ago. At the time I was working for Prudential Securities Inc. The division ended up being poorly managed in developing out the business and its management team. I managed my own team for about a year. My hiring manager was a very good manager but due to consolidation and significant downsizing was let go. There were about 100 plus open requisitions at the time and they were eliminated as well as about 300 people who they consolidated into an auditorium and were subsequently discharged. I was rolled under another team primarily responsible performing QA. The remaining management team were not very experienced and some months later I ended up leaving and the PSI arm was sold off. I'm sure the Prudential Insurance company is much better as I still know of a few colleagues who continue to work in that company. Given their feedback that company is a good company to work for.

Employee - Analyst / Associate / Consultant

The time I worked there was when it was spinning off its securities brokerage business, so the environment was very unstable.
