I worked at Prudential full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Though top tier management has a broad array of skills and clear direction, nid tier management lacks the correct skill set to grow the company

Cons

The mid tier management lacks skills and the desire for continuing education. Very old management whose time has passed leaves little mentor possibilities

Advice to Management

Apply cross functional reviews from not only the direct supervisor but the management they work with on a continuous basis from various business units in order to acquire a full view as older management simply protects itself from being downgraded

    Pros

    The benefits at Prudential are great. The people in the agencies are wonderful, caring, hard working people

    Cons

    The turnover in the field is distrubing. Lots of effort by corporte, but the issue is far from solved.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the retention issue as much as you work on the recruiting issue. If you have good people in a position which is dissolved try to find another spot for them. A good employee should be valued.

    Pros

    Impressive résumé builder. Learn to be overcome impossible and often stupid goals and measures. Learn to survive on less money.

    Cons

    Senior management basically has gone number 2 all over the bed. Cost cutting has driven the compensation, support, training, and technology to shamefully low levels...if you worked at your a start up you'd expect that -but at a company as big and supposedly great as this one? Boo. No one pays their reps 45% of what they sell and then charges them for licensing (meaning you have a license to sell but your company that employs you will charge you to put your license to sell their product on their system, got out before they asked me to buy the knife set)
    Culture of blame if you don't like something and you speak up to your manager you are either ignored or told that you should just drink more kool-aid and then things will be better.
    Vampire style recruitment in agency, don't ask the guy who just lost his paycheck that week to a systems glitch at home office to recommend someone to be an agent!?

    Advice to Management

    Read these reviews it will help you to see how bad things are getting. Cut away management to many people are paid not to produce a thing!? In a company all about sales...6 figure earners for counting fewer and fewer beans really ???
