    I worked at Prudential as an intern

    Pros

    Great work environment. Learned about the insurance industry. Paid well. Good experience if you are thinking about a financial advisor position.

    Cons

    Could have been more involved in dealing with clients. Could have become more involved with investment products offered to clients.

    Pros

    In Iselin, NJ they believe in cross training both permanent and contract employees. I find this to be beneficial as it can offer experience in a facet of the department that one wouldn't normally get while on other contract positions.

    Cons

    As with any large company, the rumor mill regarding what is going to happen down the road is alive and well and most often not exactly true.

    I worked at Prudential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Prudential was a great place to work and had wonderful staff. I learned a great deal and always felt that I was a part of team, as well as an entrepreneur.

    Cons

    In order to achieve my personal goals I wish I had discovered this opportunity when I was in my 20's rather than in my 60's. No reflection on Prudential.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging growth of new reps and don't forget about the tenured reps.
