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

  1. Was not what I expected

    I worked at MassMutual

    Pros

    Good Company history and weekly training is good

    Cons

    You are not on a salary or even a draw for that matter, yet they want you to document all of your calls and have a pipeline of prospects and work 50 hours a week. After 2-3 months, they are going to start charging you for back office help and supplies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give a draw or base salary. your turnover is really high

  2. Nice Place

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (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.
