You are a Number
Agent (Former Employee), Chalfont, PAMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Friendly coworkers
Cons: Get your licenses and leave ASAP
Worked as an Agent, the corporate side is less toxic towards employees

No salary, paid commissions only. Training was adequate but has since been scaled back like everything else, in order to pinch every drop of blood out of their agents as possible before they inevitably quit. You are expected to sell terrible financial products that continue to scale back in benefits as the economy (and Pru's stock price) climbs. You can't get fired because Pru has nothing invested in you to begin with besides a few hundred dollars in licensing. During orientation you're pumped up about all the "bonuses" you can earn, which are really just a fractional -return- on what Prudential is harvesting off of you passively. Think of it as paying taxes twice, when you have no salary to begin with.

The medical benefits and 401k are quite good, but agency distribution only looks out for #1 at all times. The extremely high turnover reflects this. Compliance is also a nightmare to deal with and will spite you whenever possible. AVOID!!

It was a great company. I'm not sure the company is still in business. The owner was very generous with the tools that she brought to her agents.

Administrative Associate (Current Employee), Roseland, NJFebruary 20, 2015
Pros: benefits, flexibility, work/life balance
Cons: ability to promote from within
Prudential is a great place to work. They have amazing benefits and they allow employees to work from home.

They encourage and require personal development, but when it comes to trying advance inside the company, that is difficult. Depending on what area you work in, there could be a lot of flexibility.

Co-workers are great.
