I have been considering a career in this field since college and, now that I have some sales experience under my belt, want to make the leap in the next few months. I am being recruited by the local Prudential office and a super-regional bank.
From what I gather Pru pretty much only offers insurance products and mutual funds now, so I think the bank route would eventually, give me more products to sell. But the earning potential at the bank seems to be much less in the beginning.
Any suggestions on which may be the better route? Anyone have an opinion on Pru? There used to be a lot of info on these boards about them but it seems to have fallen off.

If you are SURE you have leads to bring in at $4m, try the indy route.
But, if you want help with leads, go to the Bank

Do you think that the Prudential name might have panache that would not be there if you were "Acme Financial Planning?"
