    Very similar to "cash$cam", vulture culture.

    Financial Services Associate (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsName recognition. People are familiar with the name.

    ConsIt was a glorified pyramid scheme. They leverage the lifelong relationships for a check. Their model is to have a rotating door of associates that bring clients to senior associates. They stress joint-work. What that essentially becomes is new people bringing their family and friends to veterans. The veterans ultimately keep your clients. Regardless of what they tell you, you're an insurance salesman. There is no incentive to, and they dissuade you from being a financial resource. All they want you to do is bring big clients to senior advisors and sell everyone else insurance. After 6 months only three of the 14 people on my team were still employed at prudential. You work full time hours and have part time status so that they don't have to pay you. It's a vulture culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBase salary and establishing hiring standards would help attract and retain talent.

    Come work for a Rock solid financial services company

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsMany different opportunities and locations. Financial stability, even in a down market. A culture of teamwork. I am amazed at how many people have come back to Prudential after going to other firms. There seems to be a willingness to accommodate personal needs, special work schedules, transfers, etc. The benefits package is quite strong. Diversity is truly valued.

    ConsI am not sure compensation is at the top of the market. Advancement can be slow. Corporate office is in Newark, NJ.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue an opportunistic , yet reasonable, acquisition plan.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not exactly what I was told when recruited

    Financial Services Associate (Current Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    Prossome flexability, people really do need the products. You do have the opportunity to "own" your own business.

    ConsTraining was the worst I have seen at any job. The training manager was more worries about herself than doing a good job, had no knowledge of the products being sold and was a joke. Management changed every couple months. It does not make you feel good when you have three managers in a year. They talk about giving people leads but when they finally do, they are old, are not valid, or in areas you cannot even afford to drive to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive people a real chance to get started. A small salary would be a great help.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Warning on Trust Division

    Trust Officer (Former Employee)
    Atlanta, GA

    ProsYou are in the upper salary range for comparable jobs.

    ConsNo emphasis on work/life balance. Many of the senior managers were working 80 hour weeks with similar expectations for the staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a page from many other Fortune 500 companies and learn the added value of work/life balance.
