I worked at Prudential full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent product information and sales training program. Sponsorship for state licenses, paid training as you study. Good management support.

Cons

Difficult to get started as a young producer. Veteran agents were not very supportive of new FSAs entering the insurance business. Fellow agents were also very competitive and secretive amongst each other. Could have just been my branch environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide leads to well-performing agents.

    Pros

    Generally friendly co-workers in the same entry level position you are in who understand your complaints.

    Cons

    You have to complete a 'Project 400' which is a list and contact data of all your friends, family, colleagues, and peers once hired. Then your sales managers force you to go through that list one by one calling each person to schedule an appointment in order to sell/guilt them into purchasing a Prudential life insurance policy or investment. If you subsequently leave or change jobs it does not matter to the management because they have already locked in that relationship with a long-term account that helps their bottom line. It is only after you have exhausted your own list before they begin to share the ample leads and referrals that come through the database.

    Pros

    Prudential does make an effort to match talent to task (albeit with varying success). Their benefit package is outstanding and an honest attempt is made at promoting life/work balance.

    Cons

    At this time the bottom line is becoming too prominent in the relationship between Prudential and their employees. Also, common to the insurance industry innovation is shunned if not downright discouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When reducing expenses to increase ROE employees should not be seen as a hindrance to profits but should and can be part of the equation.
