    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPrudential offers great benefits, fair salaries, work life balance and a lot of extra benefits you will only find at a large organization.

    ConsYou will find the typical office politics often found at large organizations with a diverse group of employees. In some of the departments you will also find the favoritism obstacle in advancement.

    Strategic Transformational IT Leader efficient in communicating Value of IT that business can leverage to maximize ROI

    Senior Systems Architect (Current Employee) Roseland, NJ

    ProsVery Collaborative Family like Work Environment. Learnt and Practiced that honesty, integrity and ethical business transaction builds customer loyalty. Building business relations through building communities. These are the key to retain the market share. Place to build extremely good leadership, risk and change management, financial decision making based on KPIs.

    ConsExtremely high employee retention - very low potential for career growth. Even though employees are delegated higher responsibilities, they can't be promoted through ranks at the same rate as our peers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWe have an extremely efficient talent management program - would really love to see talent people progressively promoted through ranks based on their abilities and skillsets.

    Wonderful company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Newark, NJ

    ProsPrudential is a wonderful company to work for. Besides getting in the door to a job you will enjoy, they offer continued training and growth where applicable. They have a wonderful work, life balance, benefits, on site health facility among other perks like bonuses. Employees tend to stay for a very long time.

    ConsSometimes growth doesn't happen as quickly as you think it should. And, requesting work from home doesn't always get approved.

    Prudential Starck is fantastic! Like a family. The best real estate company.

    Sales Broker (Former Employee)

    ProsEncouraging, great support, friendly environment. Truly a great place to work. If you cannot be successful at Starck, it is truly your own fault. They will give you all the training and support you need. Other agents are helpful and not vindictive or back stabbers. It is a supportive team.

    ConsI cannot think of one. It is commission based pay which may be difficult for some that need more consistent income. The agent-company split is fair and the fees are reasonable.
