Prudential is a great company to work for. It has excellent benefits (salary, PTO, 401k, additional services) for your needs. Although you have to navigate yourself through different areas for career growth, I truly believe that you end up making useful connections through out your career at Prudential.

Great experience
Real Estate agent (Former Employee), Rancho Cucamonga, CAMarch 31, 2014
Pros: fun activities, great training, advanced marketing focused on the latest technology
Cons: high agents fees
A typical day as a real estate agent starts with a meeting in the morning practicing scripts and sharing best practices about sales and customer service. Prospecting is something that you do every day, either by phone or meeting people in person. Once you have an open escrow you have to make sure and coordinate everything from the loan, termite report, – more... house inspection, clients and the other agent on the other side of transaction. You have to do your own marketing and reach out to clients either by mailing and social media. The environment at work was great, I enjoyed being part of that office and social activities. – less
