I have been working at MassMutual

Pros

Financially strong company. More job security

Cons

No career growth opportunities or advancement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide way of giving anonymous feedback to management. Some groups exist in fear. In some cases, post-engagement survey action only worsened morale because senior management not interested in really engaging. It's all about the "show".

    The Financial Advisor title/position is misleading.

    Pros

    Is a commission only sales position so you do enjoy the benefits associated with a position like this.
    --Make your own schedule
    --Little involvement from Management
    --If you sell, your income potential is unlimited

    Cons

    The entire industry tries to disguise the true nature of the position. You are there for one reason, that reason is to sell life insurance policies. Yet, that's never said in any of your interviews, you are told you are there to "help" clients, you are able to sell many products, and so on. While there is some true to those things. Your primary and secondary responsibility is to sell life insurance policies. If you sell, your experience will be awesome. If you do not, not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your recruits and your retention rate will increase. Less of them will be disappointed once they get started.

    Pros

    Good solid company, been around a long time

    Cons

    Health Insurance has been a nightmare, Mass changed to Huge Deductables and after meeting our deductable, they cancelled our Cobra Insurance. Guess they really don't want their employees or former employees to use the insurance. Called Mass about issues with their Cobra administrative company and was blown off. If this is how they treat their policy holders when they have a problem, good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your former employees better. Myself, family and friends are still policy holders, but probably not for long.
