I have been working at Prudential

Pros

Flexible work arrangements, multitude of businesses and opportunities, convenient locations, great people

Cons

Pay is below average in my opinion, hard to navigate a career around the company if you are unsure of what you want to do, Newark is a rough city

I'm in a rotation program and the rotations are all very similar and limited in terms of skills acquired. Plus side would be exploring various business groups, but always using the same skills within each group limits professional growth.

    Pros

    some flexability, people really do need the products. You do have the opportunity to "own" your own business.

    Cons

    Training was the worst I have seen at any job. The training manager was more worries about herself than doing a good job, had no knowledge of the products being sold and was a joke. Management changed every couple months. It does not make you feel good when you have three managers in a year. They talk about giving people leads but when they finally do, they are old, are not valid, or in areas you cannot even afford to drive to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a real chance to get started. A small salary would be a great help.

    I have been working at Prudential

    Pros

    For hardworking and motivated individuals, Prudential has much to offer. I joined right out of college and have had endless opportunities, unlike any of my peers at other organizations and in different industries. Opportunity exists to be of great service to clients while at the same time earn great financial rewards.

    Cons

    Very big. Sometimes can be difficult to work through maze of resources. However, the size also brings with it benefits such as name recognition, great benefits and unlimited career opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit from college campuses. I think there is an entire generation of students who would be interested in 'writing their own tickets', which they'll be able to at Prudential.
