Why is there such negative energy in this place? Why can't the atmosphere be less toxic? I will quit because health is priceless.
The biggest cause of stress here: management. They are also the main reason why the most knowledgeable and capable employees are leaving this place. I have never worked in a company that has such bad managers as we do here. You?
Rumors seem to be starting up again...
I work in Global Technology and whenever I asked someone how they are doing I get a defeated, "ah, ya know" or "hanging in there" or half-hearted "good". It didn't used to be like this, most people I interacted with used to be enthusiastic and happy... — read more
What are typical annual raises like? Do you ever get zero raise? Thank you.
Is this a good company for WFH jobs? Are the annual bonuses good? Do you get annual raises? If so what percent on average? Thank you in advance.
How likely are you to get your 10% annual bonus when working entry level positions? Is it more like 2-5%?
I'm not sure how it happened, but the once great company culture has morphed into a toxic mess that everybody is looking to escape. I hate to see what Prudential has turned into because I used to truly enjoy my work and now I dread it. I'd like to... — read more
Leave your thoughts on the latest quarterly update.
Has anyone heard if we are closing any offices?
There's talk about layoffs in technology this week, is this true? How many were affected?
I'll land on my feet if I'm laid off. I'm much more worried about them deciding that severance is too much of an expense and instead of laying us off, they start finding reasons to fire us. I know many will call me paranoid and they might be true... — read more
I'm tired because I have to deal with a total lack of recognition or respect for my performance every single day. I'm tired of having to fight to have anything I have done recognized as being done by me. I'm tired of others taking credit for my work... — read more
The rest of us are planning to leave because they keep expecting us to pick up their work and continue like it's a normal thing. Not only that isn't physically possible, but none of us are insane to let them keep increasing our workload that was... — read more
I can say with certainty that most of us are here only because it is difficult to find another option. It’s easy to get an offer that’s no better than the job I have here, but it’s not easy to find something better. I'd like to leave before I get... — read more
Now that the retirment business is going. Will the Hartford location remain? Or, will the staff be down sized?
Layoffs may be coming, but don't let go!
Retirement employees not of retirement age are having their RMSA forfeited since they were sold off. What's the mood in the room on this one??
What are your thoughts on the overhauled promotion policy? Between the constant changes and reshuffling and the new promotion policy (we have to apply to a new position or post for our current position at a higher level and hope we get it or be... — read more
Have you heard anything about potential Prudential layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?

I have an opportunity to interview with Prudential as a lead contract analyst, recruiter found me. I’ve passed the recruiter round and now the contracts team wants to interview. Im currently employed by another large insurer, same capacity different... — read more
It was not surprising that PRU sold its Retirement business. It's been a long time coming. I would expect to see consolidation and cost savings in the near future. VSP was the optimal time to exit the company. Kudos to those who took advantage of it. — read more
We hire people specifically for one role and then we put them into a completely different role they didn't expect nor are equipped to handle. This screws over all of us: the person who joined the company and would otherwise thrive but is now stuck in... — read more
When did things turn so toxic???
That’s someone’s opinion in one of the previous posts. I wonder what you think, does Pru have the capacity to attract young and talented new employees? My opinion is that it's not just the younger people, Pru no longer has the capacity to attract... — read more
Anyone know what the company’s return to office will look like? Do you all get to continue working from home? Is it a hybrid?
On Monday I noticed a bunch of posts from former Pru employees about their next role and leaving the company. Was wondering if coincidence or another big cut.
Has anyone heard more about Prudential is looking to sell its Retirement business? Things have been very quiet since Bloomberg published an Article about a potential sale back in April.
We used to have good leadership, how did that change so quickly? This is true for all levels. It feels like managers see us as a burden instead of employees they should get to know and promote good relations with. Nobody seems interested in talking... — read more
I start with another company in 3 weeks. I gave my notice and I swear I took a huge sigh of relief. I am counting the days until I no longer work for Pru! I’m going to take the extra week between jobs to decompress from the toxic environment that... — read more
Was approached about a role here but in keep hearing about transformations going on. What are these transformations trying to accomplish? Is it Agile, digital, future of work? Any thoughts?
People are either leaving for better opportunities or looking to leave. When will Pru get the picture here? Are you looking to leave?
With all the changes at this place, what will be left? They're probably going to sell full service, scaling back Annuities drastically, slowing down ILI, and could sell Group Insurance. Anyone hear anything on this? What will be left? Just... — read more
If you have and you gave two weeks notice, where you asked to work for those two weeks or did they immediately terminate your employment? I don't want to burn my bridges and quit without giving notice, but I got a good job offer that would require... — read more
