    I worked at Prudential plc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I'll say it first. If you are have to choose a career in insurance... it's objectively one of the best choices, this coming from someone who greatly dislikes the industry. That said, their products are costly, meaning often you find yourself selling a suboptimal package from a purely cost perspective
    Learn very quickly
    Builds confidence in people to high pressure
    Training and pressure allows you to build strong bonds which may be the main thing that stops people in the industry from leaving

    Cons

    The job does not discriminate between working and off-work hours
    A sense that you are exploiting your friends
    A strong draw to push aside your morals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Checks and balances + KPIs directly on the quality of sales culture being developed

    I worked at Prudential plc

    Pros

    Descent paymaster. Hard think of anything else.

    Cons

    Management is not driven by level of expertise and effort brought in, rather by where you come from! No acknowledgement of hard work. Bureaucracy and politics at its peak where threads reaching HQs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely change the very top management and bring in competent team leader, who really understands the business and turn this place to business than House of Lords.

    Pros

    The treatment of the staff by the HR is excellent and a good demonstration of it's caring ethos towards the staff though the same cannot be said of the management of the company.

    Cons

    Long working hours and a very demanding place - which at times may compromise your work-life balance. The compensation may be fair but the bonus payout leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relook at the ratio of male-female workforce - this may yet impact on the overall morale of the staff, particularly those on the mid management side.
