A solid stable parent company but management in Dallas falls short
Analyst (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 13, 2017
Great corporate benefits including a defined benefit pension plan. Management in Dallas needs be fair to all and not show favoritism. Also respect and appreciate employees based on the quality of their work and not who they know.

Prudential is a great company and the people that they employ are wonderful as well. They are very invested in seeing you succeed and everyone is willing to help; there is no unfriendly competition, everyone works together. They could do a little more to prepare a new sales person for their job because once you are hired, they basically throw you out to the wolves with very minimal compensation to get you started. Don't get me wrong, any manager or associate is willing to run appointments with you but there still seems like there could be more training involved when getting started.
You need to be a strong sales person willing to work for commission or you will struggle. You get paid for how productive you are here and it WILL take a good amount of time to get to the level that you want to reach
I love working here. The work environment is very tranquil. No yelling or screaming, just people wanting to get work done. Hardest part of the job is understanding the business as it has so many different aspects to its business. Then there is the Prudential acronyms. People that have been working there for years still struggle with all the acronyms. But, still the job is great as you learn something everyday given the company's size ($1.14T AUM!!!).

Financial Professional Associate (Current Employee) – south windsor , ct – December 5, 2013
You don’t get paid until you complete a 26 week cdp program that you have to pay for which costs $1500, in those 26 weeks you have to get the L&H, series 6, and series 63 exam. The managers rush you through it weather you have the money or not. Poor organization as each man explains the rules different.
one out of a few hits it big and makes a good salary
Production Artist FREELANCE (Former Employee) – Newark, NJ – April 14, 2013
Perfection was stressed even more than most studios. A software system called SMART was used to integrate artists files with writer's edits.The software was so demanding that anything less than a thorough understanding could be problematic and time consuming.
