Newark has been the site of Prudential's headquarters since the company's birth in 1875. Today, most of the firm's business units—spread out in three major offices—are well represented here, as are many of the firm's corporate citizenship initiatives. From the civic leadership of the company's founder, John Fairfield Dryden, to the current engagement of hundreds of company employees with local nonprofits, Prudential has consistently strived to make a difference in the lives of the citizens of Newark and its neighboring cities.
Newark is a richly diverse and civic-minded community that offers a wide range of dining, cultural, and educational opportunities. Prudential associates regularly sample from a global menu of Spanish, Portuguese, Brazilian, Italian, and traditional American cuisines—at attractive eateries all within walking distance from their offices. From world-class soccer, NBA basketball, and ice hockey games, to symphony orchestras, musical theater, poetry jams, jazz, and hip-hop, there's always something happening in this city. And Newark is home to several leading universities, including Rutgers University-Newark, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
Our more than 4,700 associates enjoy working in a vibrant location that offers them free parking, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, in-house cafeterias, health and wellness centers, and access to a broad array of forums, networking, and career development events. What's more, the Newark location—a mere 20 minutes away from New York City—is easily accessible by two major rail lines, several highways, Newark Liberty International Airport, and the busy Port Newark on the Newark Bay (for our more adventuresome commuters!).
We look forward to your visit to Newark. You'll quickly see why we think this location is a great place to work and build your career.
