Claims Manager (Former Employee), Livingston, NJ – October 15, 2014
Pros: being able to flex your hours or even your complete schedule.
Cons: half hour lunches and having to stay inside during the full work day.
I loved processing the disability claims for NJEA. I met some of the nicest teachers and administrators in New Jersey doing this job. There was also opportunity to grow and learn other fields as well which I took full advantage of.
Financial Professional Associate (Former Employee), Needham, MA – October 6, 2014
Cons: 100% commission, lack of useful experience in management
It was not what I was expecting. I got the feeling they just hire people as fast as they can to increase production. Its just a numbers game. Support was not there, my sales manager knew next to nothing and was only able to advance my knowledge to a negligible degree. The official training was more or less useless to me in the day to day. My managing – more... director always wanted to help but it was not very helpful without the rest of the management being up to snuff. A lot of focus on getting sales right out of the gate and very little focus on the quality of training provided. Constantly had people asking me about sales/meetings/leads etc. If you go in with a natural market and money to live on for a at least a few months, I am sure you will have better experience than I did. In my opinion, being brand new to the area they should not have hired me at all. That being said, management does want you to succeed and will do what they can to make sure that happens. – less
Compliance Analyst (Current Employee), Iselin, NJ – October 1, 2014
Pros: decent benefits, great co-workers
Cons: commute, salary
Prudential is a great company to work for. The employees are like family and the work environment is very welcoming. I learned a lot about myself and will take what I learned far. Management encourages self development and enhancement. Hardest part of my job is the commute. I hate the Parkway!
Typist (Former Employee), Wayne, NJ – September 30, 2014
Company liked to hire people with no experience and then train them. I learned a lot in my time there. What I didn't particularly like was that the jobs are so specialized. I did the same thing day in and day out.
It is exactly what you would expect: good benefits, good security, decent pay, good work/life balance, boring work, boring environment. It didn't help that I had a manager with anger control problems yelling at people left and right.
