About Prudential Financial

Prudential was founded in 1875. Originally called The Widows and Orphans Friendly Society, it initially sold burial insurance. Since being formed, Prudential has shown its resilience to challenging events, including The Spanish influenza and the Great Depression. Much of its early success is due in part to the industrial expansion and the growing need to insure factory workers. Prudential has had a long history of acquisitions, including CIGNA Corporation’s retirement business and The Hartford’s life insurance business.

Prudential offers products and services such as financial education, life insurance, health insurance, wealth management, retirement funds, and workplace benefits. Prospective employees will find opportunities in a variety of areas, including data science and analytics, finance, investment management, marketing, product management, and more. The company features an “Early Talent Program” for young professionals, as well as a robust internship program. 

Prudential partners with several foundations with the goal of helping the youth of America. Such partnerships include The Aspen Institute, Jobs for the Future, My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, and MyPath. In its latest fiscal year, the company donated more than $47 million to nonprofit organizations, and its employees donated nearly 45,000 hours of their time volunteering in their communities across the country.
