Pros

Training is great, benefits are very good. The work and family balance, as well as working from home are great. Full Caferteria and Gym on site.

Cons

"Cliques" with management dominate the environment,..some management can be act unethical. Very easy to get "stale" while there, even when working to get ahead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the employees and do what you say you will do.

    I worked at Prudential full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    75% of the employees care, and know what they are doing. 25% of those people will help you in a time of need. Most of the worker bees really do care to do the right thing the first time

    Cons

    Since they went public - The majority are watching their own paths/career & "Manglement" is looking out for the next "Cost Saving" move to increase their personal income for Bonus Time - even at the risk of loosing control of "people" - Large check = Poor decisions Pay Outs are huge for when you get "retired" as a Dir. / V.P. / Manager

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop "leveraging" domestic employee's for quantity over quality. Coverage does not get the job done right. Respect is earned, not bought with a golden parachute - It's not about the $$'s - It's about the work needing to be done

    Pros

    Impressive résumé builder. Learn to be overcome impossible and often stupid goals and measures. Learn to survive on less money.

    Cons

    Senior management basically has gone number 2 all over the bed. Cost cutting has driven the compensation, support, training, and technology to shamefully low levels...if you worked at your a start up you'd expect that -but at a company as big and supposedly great as this one? Boo. No one pays their reps 45% of what they sell and then charges them for licensing (meaning you have a license to sell but your company that employs you will charge you to put your license to sell their product on their system, got out before they asked me to buy the knife set)
    Culture of blame if you don't like something and you speak up to your manager you are either ignored or told that you should just drink more kool-aid and then things will be better.
    Vampire style recruitment in agency, don't ask the guy who just lost his paycheck that week to a systems glitch at home office to recommend someone to be an agent!?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read these reviews it will help you to see how bad things are getting. Cut away management to many people are paid not to produce a thing!? In a company all about sales...6 figure earners for counting fewer and fewer beans really ???
