I worked at Prudential full-time (More than a year)
Training Program is decent, Flexible hours, Good benefits such as the MFIP program, Pension, Roth 401K.
Health Insurance cost was very expensive for it being a benefit.
Charging you rent for your desk.
Compliance team at HQ doesn't understand products and can confuse your clients on the callback for annuities.
My main concern was that your Managers are more concerned about their end of the year bonus and pushing life insurance and annuities as they are core products. Not necessarily focused on helping the client rather than just getting a sale.
Advice to Management
Control your managers and make sure you do right by your clients. Also restructure the bonus system for managers as that is all they are focused on. It is almost impossible to build a business as it seems that the managers just want you to sell to your friends and family then when you run out of your network they ignore you until you quit or don't meet your sales quota.

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