    Great Company to kick start your career with

    Sep 16, 2021 - Financial Representative in Irvine, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great mentors, kick start your career with a S&P500 firm, great competitive compensation package, access to multiple company products,

    Cons

    It is a large firm and therefore it’s harder to get things approved for marketing purposes if you want to grow your business. This isn’t the firm to work with if you want to become your own boss one day or if you would like to build your own processes, use your own software. It’s great to get started here at Prudential, acquire licensing and then transition out if you believe you’ll be in the industry for the long haul

    Horrible company

    Mar 24, 2022 - Team Leader, Group Insurance in Jersey City, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you are a director or above, you will be compensated and valued otherwise you are a worker bee and they do not care about all the TLs and DCMs actually doing the work and taking care of their customers.

    Cons

    There are no Manager roles for growth and only TL titles which allows them to keep their salary range low. They hire at 10-20% MRR and give little 2-3% raises to keep you under 45% MRR. Low annual incentive award targets or lower - 10% You will be expected to take on additional work but not compensated. When you decide it's time to leave then they offer you retention bonus to try and now keep you. As a TL and lower, you will get "STUCK" and claims and there are no growth opportunities. They say there is growth, but you will not be able to get an internal interview outside of claims. I have been with the company for over 20 years and its empty promises. There are only 3 directors and no manager roles so you will be "STUCK". I am only here because of the pension and grandfathered in and now they eliminated the RMA. I've wasted my last 20 years. RUN to a Competitor and move up the career ladder and know you are valued and be paid what you are worth!

    Pros

    Local office coworkers were friendly and intelligent. The company has good benefits. Work/life balance was adequate. They provide tools to upskill yourself.

    Cons

    They low-ball you on salary as much as they can. Corporate employees up in NJ were very unfriendly, condescending and unprofessional. They layoff people to save money.
