If you are working in Asia, the crown jewel of the company, then you will find many opportunities for growth, and a chance to work in some of the most vibrant markets in the world.
Some very bright people at the top
Importance of UK and the attendant influence are diminishing

Cons

Very strong orientation to Agency; over-weighted to this distribution platform.
Extensive, prolonged, and test-centric evaluation during hiring process.
Long hours are the norm

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

    Pros

    I'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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Checks and balances + KPIs directly on the quality of sales culture being developed

    Doesn't Recommend
    Approves of CEO
