    Current Employee - Intern in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Extreme flexibility (potential con if abused)
    -OPPORTUNITY to make a lot of money
    -Chance to help people
    -Your own business

    Cons

    100% comission
    -Takes a couple YEARS to build business
    -Lots of cold calling/phoning
    -Learn as you go
    -SPLIT comissions when starting out
    - ~70% turnover = your clients go to someone else when you decide to change careers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a VERY tough business, but if you stick the first couple years of learning out, you can be very successful. Have a good +/-6 months of fallback savings to cover bills/ expenses when starting out.

    Former Employee - Financial Services Representative in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at MassMutual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good training and mentorship
    management really cares
    if you make it, you make it big - unlimited commission possibility

    Cons

    Very difficult to do well
    No real financial support - income is essentially all commission based; even if you get on the stipend, they are very coy about how easy it is to lose it
    Somewhat though products to sell

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
