Young sales people create an undercurrent of pressure to sell at all cost

Financial Consultant (Former Employee)
Singapore (Singapore)

I worked at Prudential plc full-time for more than a year

ProsI'll say it first. If you are have to choose a career in insurance... it's objectively one of the best choices, this coming from someone who greatly dislikes the industry. That said, their products are costly, meaning often you find yourself selling a suboptimal package from a purely cost perspective
Learn very quickly
Builds confidence in people to high pressure
Training and pressure allows you to build strong bonds which may be the main thing that stops people in the industry from leaving

ConsThe job does not discriminate between working and off-work hours
A sense that you are exploiting your friends
A strong draw to push aside your morals

Advice to Senior ManagementChecks and balances + KPIs directly on the quality of sales culture being developed

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great company to work with, but with some issues about senior management team.

I have been working at Prudential plc


Pros: Good pay, hassle free work environment, office politics not much… Cons: Micromanaging senior management team, who pretends to know it all. Advice to Senior Management: Trust your middle managers more. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
