    Great Company Reputation, but read the fine print ...

    I worked at Prudential

    Pros

    Prudential has 98% name/brand recognition, so it's great to be associated with that type of clout. Prudential also offers great benefits to employees and their philanthropy efforts are to be applauded.

    Cons

    Be sure to read the fine print! Depending on what type of job you accept it could mean the poor house! Corporate or staff positions at any location will supply a great career opportunity. Agency Distribution and Professional Financial Associate (sales) positions AVOID. You end up buying leads, even from Prudential! Position is 100% commission and you are asked to be/do everything from 200+phone calls/week, lead generation, business canvassing, administration and even, after 2 years, pay for your cube. Forget the promise of top-notch training! Overlook promises of $90,000 your second year! Again read the fine print.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A new business model needs to be put into place at Prudential.
