I have been working at Prudential plc

Pros

They buy you a dinner at Christmas if you make the top 50 list ..otherwise it's rice and water....

Cons

Management is by Aliens who do things quite strangely, and people vanish all the time for no apparent reason. Other people quit for no apparent reason other than they are fed up with their friends / work counterparts being treated like wankers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should bring back the man from PRU concept and show some flair rather than Machiavellian BS and keeping people looking over their shoulder daily. Stop being introverted BS'ers and learn how to work in the current world. Use less consultants and trust internal people who are hired to do the job.

    I have been working at Prudential plc

    Pros

    Big company with established brand name, presence in Asia.
    M&G in London one of the best employers in UK

    Cons

    strong hierarchical culture, little focus on performance, poor communication and a lot of inefficiency.
    Slow product development, and not too customer focused either.
    Very little attention to HR issues, poor employee retention policy, and no comprehensible promotion approach

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the people in "the field"
