I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great training, you will learn everything there is to know about financial products and how they work along with a very good variable annuity program, and competive insurance and mutual fund costs.

Cons

If you don't have contacts (Prudential wants you to sell to who you know) good luck. Once you use up all your contacts, that is if you have any to begin with, management will maybe periodically pay for a 1,000 piece mailer to market yourself

Advice to Management

Let people know that cold calling does not work, and if you lack a center of influence to let people know of what you do, maybe you should think twice of hiring a financial professional

    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Training program...base salary OK. Management has all worked up through the ranks, so they can relate well to new members starting out. There is suuport, sometimes you just need to ask.

    Cons

    No matter how they describe or name it, your an insurance sales agent/rep. Very aggressive selling techniques enforced by management, while training teachs you the complete opposite. Classic case where training and Mgt. are very different.

    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Since starting at Prudential in 2005, I have had a very positive experience. I've had upward mobility since starting and have learned a lot about the different areas within Annuities since starting here.

    Cons

    It takes a little while to go through the interview process when a position is posted.

    Advice to Management

    Move the process along when offering/ providing opportunities to others. Otherwise, a great company.
