    Pros

    People are v friendly New office with great facilities New policies worklife balance is excellent

    Cons

    Caring element of the organisation has disappeared somewhat. People are siphoned off into roles without discussion and not in line with their career progression. Senior management seem relieved when people resign as it means they can fill their role elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people’s careers in London

    I have been working at M&G Prudential full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    New office, casual dress and Agile working within the office and at home. Pleasant colleagues. Approachable management for work queries. Aside from a pretty low morale, the culture is nice and has developed quickly, a bigger push on bringing the 'whole you' to work with culture and gender groups being set up.

    Cons

    Uncertainty - redundancies and demerger, feels like we're being packaged up to be sold off. Changes in title and more work (a promotion) without being compensated; not uncommon here. Diligent staff can be taken for granted and pick up slack for other staff for the long term; leads to an increase in the number of staff being signed off with stress due to high workload and a lower morale. Communication on important... issues is lacking (business change, staffing, Gender Pay, where the company is going) Lack of encouragement for career progression or internal moves. The company previously felt more like a family but many M&G old faces are leaving/being made redundant so I fear the knowledge within the company is lessening as time goes on, with more contractors coming in.

    Advice to Management

    Show the hard working and valuable staff that they are truly valued and reflect this in their wages. Listen to concerns and most importantly...communicate! The rumour mill is a dangerous thing.
