    Pros

    Very professionally run agency. Having worked in financial services for many years...I also found their Staff to be very efficient. Responsive to an Agent's needs. And, quick turnaround time when it comes to paperwork processing and their back office Underwriting team.. They're very generous with Marketing dollars if you show results.

    Cons

    Commission based business, of course...

    Pros

    My career at MassMutual Raleigh-Durham has been extremely rewarding in all aspects! Management always looks out for the well-being of the entire team and promotes growth in all areas. They are extremely supportive and never hesitant to help in any way that they can. They constantly reward the team with fun group outings such as sporting events, adventurous team exercises, trips, and other great bonuses. The work environment is a perfect balance of dedicated hard work and exciting energy. The variety of career opportunities and the benefits/compensation are fantastic, as well. Working for a company and Management that looks out for and takes such great care of their staff only makes me want to work ten times harder in return. I'm very thankful and appreciative to be a part of such a fast growing and wonderful team!

    Cons

    I do not have any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for everything that you do! Keep up the great work! :)

    Pros

    Ability to have true control over your practice and focus on your desired areas whether it is investments, financial planning, insurance, or retirement services. Great culture and the best insurance products on the market. The richmond agency had great training.

    Cons

    Like most firms, you are completely responsible for generating leads and it is 100% commission after a financing period.

    Advice to Management

    have a more uniform training program nationwide and make it easier for agents to switch agencies.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to start a business without much start-up costs. The management is engaged in my success. If you go all in, it will pay off. Great company. Great Products. Great support.

    Cons

    This is a very difficult career to get started. But everyone knows this going in. The people that complain about this company or any other similar type of company did not do what they said they were going to do and weren't tough enough to do this anywhere, much less here. It does not happen overnight.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the people from the firm who don't do what they say they are going to do. Spend more time with the people who are making every effort to make this work. Keep growing and telling your great story.
