Pros

It's a great place to work if you want to be rewarded for your success. COmpensation is fair and based on results.

Cons

It is a place that requires a lot of effort to build a long term successful business. Have to be willing to meet a lot of people.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to your people in the field to make the right decisions about compensation and benefits. Don't make the decisions based on input from someone who hasn't ever been in the field.

    Pros

    Days off, benefits, 401k, thats it.

    Cons

    Absolutely no opportunities for growth, management gives out promotions based on how long you have been with the company as opposed to your performance. Current structure is such that for you to get a promotion, a person(s) above you should leave; and with 99% of management or senior associates not leaving, you would need to wait for 3 years for a promotion, and a promotion to a senior associate comes with a $3000 raise, less than a bonus, which is pathetic itself.

    The only good thing could be you getting in here, getting some experience and moving out either to another group or another company.

    Advice to Management

    Look into the structure of the group, promote people who do good work not those who have been around the longest, encourage more mobility within the company, pay good bonuses, the current ones are like a spit in your face.

    Pros

    Well known company that encourages development and advancement in knowledge. Some very helpful managers. Reimburse costs of designations. Team oriented.

    Cons

    Being team oriented causes competition within company and the unwillingness for some managers to help other agents. Some manager don't care or help their agents as long as they make their salary. Very sales oriented and tends to lead to product selling. Inability for some of the managers to help agents because of their lack of experience. Because of the lack of experience a new agent must find ways to produce prospects and new clients on their own (or with other new agents in my case) which requires a lot of trial and error. Very micro managing, must report day to day activities. Requires you to first tap into your natural market (ie. friends and family) right from the start.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for all Pru offices, just my own. I think our office needed more passionate and knowledgeable managers that really cared about helping our clients instead of meeting quotas. When I say knowledgeable I am talking about different markets and how to approach them.
