In our employer insights series, Andrea McBride, vice-president of information systems at Pramerica, gives us an insight into what it’s like to work for this financial services leader.

Pramerica is a technology and operations subsidiary of Prudential Financial in the US, which has more than US$1.1trn in assets under management. There are about 1,200 employees working on its campus in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, supporting the parent business in the US.

McBride leads the software development, quality assurance and systems engineering division in Pramerica, which is currently a 700-strong team of developers, testers and engineers, with 600 based in the Letterkenny office and an additional 100 working offshore.

Though Letterkenny may not be known as a bustling tech hub, Pramerica has attracted a diverse young workforce, 40pc of whom are millennials and one-third of whom come from abroad.

McBride sees Letterkenny as having the amenities of a small city without the congestion – an attractive quality that, coupled with the benefits and flexible working life offered by Pramerica, has helped keep attrition rates extremely low.

Pramerica is currently recruiting business analysts, UX designers, data scientists, project managers and dev ops staff, among others. Check out the video to find out more.
