Pros

Genuinely involved management, very concerned about your success as an Advisor and always doing things for the greater good of the client, no matter what.
Supportive staff and invested in making you a great advisor -- a career, not a job.
Much better working environment than anything else in town.

Cons

This is hard work! They said so during the interview and they meant it.
You will quickly need to get over your fear of public speaking. You will constantly be attending business groups and introducing yourself in person, by email, by phone, and by postcards. Get over it or get out!

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The training program here was great. They taught me not only all the technical training, but how to build an overall plan. My coworkers here were very friendly and helpful. It's really good to be in a place where people hang out with each other and like to help each other out. I feel like it is a great support structure.

    Cons

    Hardest part about this job is to prospect for clients. I've got a lot better with the training they have here so there is a learning curve to become really good at what you do. It feels good when you get it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to see management share this training with more people so that there's more brand awareness.

    Pros

    - Stong financially
    - As a mutual company don't have the same pressures as a public co

    Cons

    - Very old school culture -- stuffy environment and very slow to change. Generally not accepting of remote working and has a very strong culture of doing things they way they've always been done. Little opportunity for new or different thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Let the new ideas and perpsectives in if that is what you hire people for.
