I have been working at Prudential full-time (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

    Pros

    Great Company
    Good Products
    Decent training program.

    Cons

    Need to know 200 plus people willing to do business with you to get feet on the ground.
    No salary of any kind.
    Difficult to prospect in this environment.
    Too many meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prudential has the money to provide some sort of base pay. Will continue to have high failure rate with current model.
