Thread regarding Prudential layoffs

Not recognized by the younger generation?

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 anyone with a great skillset.

The Hunger Games is a perfect metaphor. I was asked to re-interview for my job, along with our entire team. I survived 5 rounds of previous layoffs, but just got let go. It clearly wasn't an issue with my performance - more likely due to my age and pay level. They now have three open positions to fill and promptly posted ads outside the company to find new victims.

Why work at a place with constant layoffs when there's plenty of options out there that don't employ Hunger Games style talent development?

This company cannot attract talent. They refuse to get rid of the talentless dead weight that have been there for decades doing nothing but playing politics. Management has hired many consulting firms to evaluate the problems. The consultants all have the same findings. Rather than cut dead weight PRU ignores the highly paid consultants and continues to do nothing. I've seen dead weight sitting around for decades doing nothing.

I'm in my early 30s, so not sure if I'm still young talent. But the constant rate of frivolous change and reorgs, the unlimited threat of outsourcing, decreasing bonuses, lower rate of pay, and horrible management....I'm surprised this company can attract any talent.
