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

    Good Benefits and pay while it last.

    Cons

    Prudential does not offer growth potential to those who truly work hard. Also, the company could care less how bad the economy is since they like to outsource our work to India. Prudential does have job openings but not for the people that were laid off. I left the company in very good standing so I thought but have not been re-hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to stop showing favoritism.

    Experience in the company will differ depending on where the position is located; leadership expertise is inconsistent.

    Pros

    Company supports flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Talk about talent management, but no supporting discipline to make it real.
    Corporate culture is unprofessional and unproductive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should observe organizations that have meaningful talent management programs, and should evaluate the culture.
