DIRECTOR (Current Employee) –  Shelton, CTJanuary 18, 2017
Great Compensation and Benefits, very little room for growth/learning. Great employees to work with. Very friendly culture. For youngsters, who are looking to learn new skills or grow, this may not be the place. It's all about what you are willing to trade off. If you are looking for a good place to retire, this is a wonderful organization.
Pros
Very friendly co-workers, great salary and benefits, work life balance
Cons
Very old school

North Carolina Team Run by an Insecure Sociopath from the North!
Manager (Former Employee) –  OhioJanuary 7, 2017
Corrupt company culture. Directors tend to be insecure and sociopathic. If they sense you are a threat to their job, they will bully you. If you have to deal with your bosses personality disorder, just not worth it!
Pros
Good Pay
Cons
Unqualified, mMentally Imbalanced Bosses.

Great place for young employees
Senior Regulatory Consultant & Manager (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTJanuary 6, 2017
Prudential provides an excellent benefits package and has recently added new benefits geared specifically to new college hires. Different managers manage differently and some are more people-oriented than others. In general, most employees truly care about each other and with any amount of longevity, tend to become family-like. As an organization, Prudential is highly risk-averse, so it can be a challenge to get changes made in an expeditious manner. After awhile, this can get frustrating.
Pros
Flexible work options, ability to work from home as needed
Cons
Ability to work from home

Client Communications Forms Designer (Current Employee) –  Dresher, PAJanuary 2, 2017
Working 10+ years. Good job, happy to be there. Work/Life Balance A+++. Best I've ever had. Looking to grow in this company is not easy. Office politics is hard to accept and favoritism is a con, but that happens in all business.
Pros
Job Work/Life Balance A+++

current leadership

Independent Contractor: Requires a Self Starter
REALTOR (Former Employee) –  Prudential California Realty, Huntington BeachDecember 29, 2016
As a new Real Estate Agent a typical day involved:
Cold calling prospective clients
setting up marketing systems
Farming geographic areas
holding/attending open house to know the area inventory
networking with fellow agents
negotiating commission terms with Broker/Manager
working the "up desk" to assist buyers and sellers inquiries and potentially earn their business

What I learned:
Talk to everyone about your business so they know your available to represent them with their real estate goals

Management:
They want to keep as much of your commission as they can
negotiate your split wisely

Hardest pert of the job:
Pleasing unrealistic clients
tactfully explaining the reality

Most enjoyable part of the job:
Closing the transaction and having all parties to the transaction satisfied
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Flexible Schedule

Prudential Day
OPERATIONS AND CONTROLS SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Melville, NYDecember 16, 2016
At Prudential my typical day would vary. One day I would be doing Compliance other days I would be handling customer service issues. I dealt with administrative functions as well as, running an office of over 70 Financial Advisors and a service staff of 8.
I learned from Management how to prioritize my day and get things done within a timely manner.
Hardest part of my job was feeling at the end that I needed more hours in the day.

Everyday was enjoyable w ehad a great staff and everyone got along well.
Pros
we all worked as a team
Cons
not enough time in a day

Long days on the phones, middle management was lacking in experience, co workers were professional, difficulties in generating leads to call people. Helping people reach their financial goals.
