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

Pros

Company supports flexible working hours.

Cons

Talk about talent management, but no supporting discipline to make it real.
Corporate culture is unprofessional and unproductive.

Advice to Management

Company should observe organizations that have meaningful talent management programs, and should evaluate the culture.

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

    Pros

    Great training and corporate culture. Great company with a longstanding reputation.

    Cons

    Startup cost and beginning pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take some of the pressure off of the newcomers in terms of pay. Right now it seems to be a "prove we should pay you" scenario which kind of kills morale and ambition for candidates that may not have a savings to fall back on.

    I worked at Prudential full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally friendly co-workers in the same entry level position you are in who understand your complaints.

    Cons

    You have to complete a 'Project 400' which is a list and contact data of all your friends, family, colleagues, and peers once hired. Then your sales managers force you to go through that list one by one calling each person to schedule an appointment in order to sell/guilt them into purchasing a Prudential life insurance policy or investment. If you subsequently leave or change jobs it does not matter to the management because they have already locked in that relationship with a long-term account that helps their bottom line. It is only after you have exhausted your own list before they begin to share the ample leads and referrals that come through the database.
