Great place to train and hone your skill. The staff at IMG are the best in the world. Bradenton provides the perfect atmosphere to train. Its proximity to Sarasota and Tampa provides easy access to the world.

Executive Administrative Assistant
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJAugust 17, 2017
A typical day at work required me to administer a range of universal administrative and specialized tasks in an appropriate and perfect manner. This comprised of organizing complex meetings, distributing agendas, managing multiple calendars, taking minutes at variety of organization meetings and sending them to the appropriate attendees. Working closely with the Board of Directors on a monthly basis arranging meetings and all logistics. Also, I am able to work separately in a team environment with or without supervision I can multi-task and adapt to any last minute changes and environment. One of the hardest and challenging parts of any job is learning their workflow process and the company culture. Another enjoyable part of the job is networking, teambuilding and communicating efficiently with your peers.
Pros
Flexible hours and working from home
Cons
healthcare

Registered Retention Specialist (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNAugust 15, 2017
Rampant with nepotism, ol' boys club. Advancement is very tough if you are not close to the managers. Hard to get recognized on merit. Not diverse in culture and very slow to adapt to and retain new and younger employees. Managers blatantly favor and promote their buddies or relatives without any reproach. Little to no regard for years of experience, personal development or the work quality produced. There is no accountability or adequate oversight given to departmental managers.

Training Logistics Manager (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJAugust 13, 2017
Prudential is a great company to work for as long as you work in the "right" department. The benefits are great and the work life balance is a plus.

Everyone is out for themselves.

Unlimited potential earnings and education, limited assistance
Financial Professional (Current Employee) –  Downers Grove, ILAugust 12, 2017
The company pushes both an entrepreneurial culture as well as a teaming culture because they can figure out which one works. Individual efforts as are mitigated by a management culture that pushes a "golden child" of the week mentality. The work is difficult and can be extremely rewarding, and yet totally unappreciated by management if it does not fit the buzz word du jour.

Love the Company and Products - Hated the job
Financial Professional Associate (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 9, 2017
As an agent, you work on 100% commission. This is brutal. The only survivors are those with a hefty list of clients ready to meet with you before you start. Even then, most fall off and/or do not ever actually meet with you. There is a high pressure to make clients on a daily/weekly basis, because if you don't, you won't make money. There is also a push to express your commissions before clients are actually approved for products or services. So, this means as an agent you're most likely going to pay money back to the company.

They are flexible with work schedules, and life balance, but you also better be ready to spend most of your nights at miserable networking events in the hopes you find the hail mary in the end zone. Very few agents here make it past 2 years and even fewer make it to 4yrs.

I lost a lot of money working for them. You would think working at a place as prestigious as this would actually make me money, but that wasn't the case for me or several other agents I saw come and go.
Pros
work/life balance, fun atmosphere, managerial support (sometimes), flexibility, potential to make a lot in revenue
Cons
potential to never make money, longer hours than expected, learn as you go (often by making mistakes), lack of certainty

Cliquish
Project Manager, Business Measures (Former Employee) –  Portland, MEAugust 9, 2017
The senior leadership is cliquish. This cliquishness starves the company of diversity of thought. It also chokes of advancement opportunities for many talented employees.

Director, Application Delivery (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJAugust 9, 2017
Worked as the liason between the systems and the business team to provide solutions with most ROI.

Even though the management believes in work life balance, it is frowned upon.
