I have been working at MassMutual full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedules. Excellent work / life balance. Great people. Rewarding work environment with the flexibility to take on additional responsibilities to build skills.

Cons

Opportunities for upward growth and mobility are limited and the organizational politics are considerably difficult to navigate. In many areas the leadership has trouble making decisions and the culture can be very self-serving.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The best way to fix culture is from the top down. Process does not fix cultural issues like trust and communication.

    Pros

    This industry feels great. I've had the pleasure of experiencing grateful clients. When I interviewed, they told me about how great it feels to be able to help someone's financial life. When I was able to do it myself, I then understood what they meant. To be able to work at a place where I can help people makes my job much more meaningful. As for the company itself, great support and training. They have a really good structure that caters to a flexible lifestyle. The people are really great here too. I feel like I can trust those around me and enjoy ourselves after work too.

    Cons

    Getting rejected when prospecting. I've gotten somewhat use to people saying no. I realized after several rejections that I should not take it personal. They just may not want me as their Advisor. However, I'm human, and it still stings to have someone say no to me. Unfortunately I had to leave because I had to move to New York

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire people who are looking to work at a big corporate company name like MassMutual. This isn't for people who just want to boost their resume. I think this is really a job for those who want to do this so that they can make a lot of money and own their own business. I really do want to own my own business one day.

    Pros

    Excellent products. High ethical standards. Excellent brand recognition. As with any sales position, you efforts will determine what you earn. No limit on what you can do.

    Cons

    Since each office is operated by an independent General Agent, culture, training, staffing, etc can be very different from office to office. Administrative staff is paid by each GA, not the home office. GAs tend to be tight fisted with salaries and it can be reflected in quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in quality staff.
