    I worked at Prudential as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of professional development opportunities, vertical and horizontal movement, good work/life balance. The culture and stability is really the driver for Pru- they take pride in their employees happiness. Mort of senior management are from within so the culture really is ingrained.

    Cons

    Less prestige than other firms, some groups are dead ends, HQ is in so-so place with some buildings being a bit run down (but building another soon)


  2. "Don't use their Annuity product to build a career on."

    I worked at Prudential part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was in the Agency Distribution channel, as captive agent. Lots of training! Both product and sales skills building available. Career Development Program, allows you to work part-time, if you choose. Career Development Program is a part-time contract hire program for max of 26 weeks.

    Cons

    CDP is an unpaid position. You are required to sell insurance and/or annuities (min requirement: 5 core product contracts, with gross production of $5000 to $10000.) However, the commissions are held in trust for you until you complete the program, so you need to have income from some other source to survive the program. You must provide your own leads and referrals. The official position of the company is that they will not provide (offer to sell you) clients leads, until you graduate CDP and become a full time Agent.

    Advice to Management

    Consider offering a draw or some other form of subsidy to the trainees. Provide a desk with a locking drawer to the trainees. Offer leads and prospects to CDP participants. Too much emphasis on product training vs. sales techniques, strategies and skills.
