I have been working at Prudential as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

If one actually got a check, due to the size of the company, you could be confident it would clear.

Cons

Prudential's Career Development Program is akin to pre-Civil War slavery. New agents are thrown to the wolves and told to sell life insurance to their friends and family, and aren't paid a dime until they hit a certain sales quota, even if they've sold product. It is possible to LOSE money by going to work, due to the fact that agents are not compensated for any of their licensing or travel expenses until they make it through the initiation. Less than half of their recruits make it through the CDP.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put yourself in the recruit's shoes. It will be quite a reality check.
