    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Very Flexible Hours. Limitless Pay. Knowledge that will stay with you wherever you go. It is really like owning your own business and you can take it as far as you want. This role is often preferable to management or an executive spot and you can make more in this role. Some people (like myself) haven't made much or won't and some will strike a few good deals and make 6-7 figures in a year.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of guidance. Also the company gets half of whatever you make when you could just get appointed with them and anyone else and get 90%

    I have been working at Prudential full-time

    Pros

    well funded. Diverse, tolerant. Talent focused. Ready to take on new problems. Very focused on quality of life and taking care of its employees and its customers. one of the most ethical and ethics focused organizations I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    risk intolerant. Bad computing environment. sometimes resistant to change. offices can be drab. at times low energy. There can be confusion around where the real opportunities and the real competition is.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change. Bring in outside talent as much as possible. Encourage a culture of experimentation and entrepreneurship. Look for ways to use technology to scale and speed the business, not just mitigate risk.
