    I have been working at Prudential full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Prudential has many business opportunities within its US Businesses. Commitment to diversity, innovation, development and work life balance is apparent throughout all of them.

    Cons

    Much like all companies benefits are a huge investment from the employer. Prudential takes benefits seriously and has put together a competitive package for its employees. However, benefits are costly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Leadership is mostly transparent to all levels of employees. Strategy is clear and communication is solid. Leaders of people are encouraged to continually develop their leadership skills. These are the makings of a good company to work for.

    I worked at Prudential part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Prudential provides its employees with an environment of stability, professionalism and knowledgeable people. Most positions here require that their employees have licenses to be as knowledgeable as possible in the field and workplace.

    Cons

    The job does call for overtime or until the case is closed and licensing renewal/ maintenance is usually required for the position and can be expensive if not covered by your employer.

    Flexible schedule, get the chance to make as much money as you can make. Great benefits and retirement through the company

    Hard to get started. If you aren't comfortable on the phone it's going to be hard to adjust. Requires driving of your own vehicle to appointments

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

    Pros

    There are many pros to working for Prudential...the wealth of knowledge through managers, other advisors, the training team, and the wholesalers makes this career exciting and doable. There is literally no question that cannot be answered...and there are a lot of questions (especially when starting out). As a parent of two school aged children, another pro is having a schedule that allows the flexibility to still be a great parent. Finally, I personally love meeting different people and helping them improve their current/future financial place in life. It is a very rewarding career.

    Cons

    Everyone is afraid of a commissions based position...I was. Again, when you have the necessary training and people who will work with you every step of the way if needed it allows the commission part to come naturally. In this position my current income is more than it has ever been. My family is feeling the benefits of this income- coupled with my schedule, it is a win-win for all of us.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing that they are not already doing...continue to provide good training.

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

    Pros

    Really looking to evolve process and approaches, always interesting work, very progressive for such a large, older company. If you're a hard worker and really trying to improve the company, management can be incredibly supportive - a lot of them want to do the right thing by their people. Truly hire the best people.

    Cons

    Some expected culture challenges as the company evolves but even the longer term employees have started to really come around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on change as a great thing - keep your high standards for finding great talent
