I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Prudential does make an effort to match talent to task (albeit with varying success). Their benefit package is outstanding and an honest attempt is made at promoting life/work balance.

Cons

At this time the bottom line is becoming too prominent in the relationship between Prudential and their employees. Also, common to the insurance industry innovation is shunned if not downright discouraged.

Advice to Management

When reducing expenses to increase ROE employees should not be seen as a hindrance to profits but should and can be part of the equation.

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are excellent people to work with, work environment is good, very good benefits, cafeteria on site which is a plus. Work/Life balance is excellent as well.

    Cons

    100% Commission job, very minimal support from management. Sink or swim mentality. Training program was basically non-existent. The position is pitched as owning your own business which is true in a way, you have all the expenses of owning a business (technology fees, office fees, marketing expenses, licensing renewals, traveling expenses), however you only get a percentage of the business you bring in. After the 2nd year you transition to a 1099 employee which means the company doesn't take the taxes out of your check any longer and it becomes your responsibility to keep track and pay them.

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

    Pros

    flexible and not much else, only the old veterans can make money in this field now

    Cons

    they don't care about keeping employees-revolving door
    management in marlton nj is a joke
    classless management staff, after i separated from the company they threw out all my belongings from my desk including a coffee mug i got from a cousin who is no longer alive

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more about your employees and support the new people rather than yourself, the business will be better in the long run
