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 Management

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

    Pros

    Unlimited potential with a solid company behind you. Definitely a leader in many ways in the life insurance industry, with great home office support.

    Cons

    No salary and full commission. Huge differences in organizational culture depending on what local Agency you work through because the General Agent's have tremendous flexibility on how to run things.

    Advice to Management

    Increase talent development and work on increasing retention rates. The communication on the local level is often quite poor within the Agency and is a major source of frustration among both new org and veterans.

    Pros

    Unlimited income opportunity with residual income from sales which can pay out over ten years. One of the best overall product menus in the business, life insurance, disability insurance, group health, executive benefits plans, stocks and funds. MassMutual owns Oppenheimer Funds and uses MFS Funds which invesnted the mutual fund and was rated top overall fund family by Lipper for 2010. The training is excellent. Often there are redundant classes, which you may opt out of, but for the business it's a great advantage to be able to schedule your appointment times and still get training. The staff and support personnel are very experienced and can help you move your cases along.

    Cons

    The business is a sink or swim deal. You have to make enough cases the first three years to stay on your contract and there is no income if you don't sell product. You will be expected / required to work some long days.

    Advice to Management

    The experience I have had with this group is excellent. I can recommend highly the entire group as people who are great to work with.
