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 product type, and not sure if jumping from one fire to another is worthwhile. The team im with right now is great, my director is great, company not so great but my team is great. Prudential would be offering significant pay increase and virtual. Reading the comments seems Pru has same toxity my employer has except my great team. We are also in the throws of trying to automate but budget not there yet. Can anyone tell me how far AI is used at Pru?

Why would you board a sinking ship?
Sounds like PRU is behind the curve of AIG with the constant layoffs and toxic workplace….McK goes from one company to the next using the same playbook. It is snd “management consulting company “ really….they alll do the same thing. They have been doing it for like 40 years.
My husband has been at Pru for just over two years. In August of 2022, he will be eligible for a pension. He and 7 co-workers, all Agile coaches, have been giving the "opportunity" to reapply for their own jobs. He just turned 65. They've soured to p-t by telling him he'll have to work out of Newark, which would be a really rough commute. Another colleague was told his job of executive director was being given to someone else but he could apply for a director job with lower pay and seniority. This colleague is over 50 and will be eligible for a pension in December. It's horrible how they treat people. I assume all 8 have to participate in this sham to protect the company from age discrimination suits.
The environment is toxic now, unless you're a VP or above. I'd run away as fast as you can. I was just laid off but had survived 5 previous rounds of layoffs and worked there for 10 years. They're literally squeezing blood from the rock to save the company.
I don’t know how bad your current situation is, but I can tell you that the work culture at Prudential is terrible. Everyone is in constant fear of being laid off and it has severely impacted the company culture. If your team is great where you are at, I would stay put.
Come to Pru if you want small raises, low bonuses, constant fear of losing your job, and being completely overworked.
