Current Employee - Financial Services Associate in Howard Beach, NY

I have been working at Prudential full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great Training program...base salary OK. Management has all worked up through the ranks, so they can relate well to new members starting out. There is suuport, sometimes you just need to ask.

Cons

No matter how they describe or name it, your an insurance sales agent/rep. Very aggressive selling techniques enforced by management, while training teachs you the complete opposite. Classic case where training and Mgt. are very different.

    Current Employee - Financial Professional in Chalfont, PA

    I have been working at Prudential full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great training, you will learn everything there is to know about financial products and how they work along with a very good variable annuity program, and competive insurance and mutual fund costs.

    Cons

    If you don't have contacts (Prudential wants you to sell to who you know) good luck. Once you use up all your contacts, that is if you have any to begin with, management will maybe periodically pay for a 1,000 piece mailer to market yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let people know that cold calling does not work, and if you lack a center of influence to let people know of what you do, maybe you should think twice of hiring a financial professional
