No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Prudential as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

If one actually got a check, due to the size of the company, you could be confident it would clear.

Cons

Prudential's Career Development Program is akin to pre-Civil War slavery. New agents are thrown to the wolves and told to sell life insurance to their friends and family, and aren't paid a dime until they hit a certain sales quota, even if they've sold product. It is possible to LOSE money by going to work, due to the fact that agents are not compensated for any of their licensing or travel expenses until they make it through the initiation. Less than half of their recruits make it through the CDP.

Advice to Management

Put yourself in the recruit's shoes. It will be quite a reality check.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Pay is not good and they like to give you the illusion of opportunities being available to you but its not really the case. They are hiring overseas like crazy and its just a matter of time before that position is eliminated.
