Pros

MassMutual provides solid training and sales support for those new to the industry and for those just looking for a change. MassMutual houses extremely competitive products backed by a highly rated company. In addition to their own products, you are also provided the freedom to sell a myriad of prodcuts from other companies.

Cons

Career contracts provide incentives to sell MassMutual products over outside carriers that you have access to. This is not necessarily a bad thing since most of their products are at or near the top in the industry across the board, but their products are not a fit for certain scenarios. Basically, in order to keep benefits and reach incentive goals....you must sell certain minimums of MassMutual products. This can be difficult at times.

It is extremely difficult to survive and/or succeed in this industry in general. Not necessarily con for MassMutual specifically, but be aware that it is very difficult and requires cold calling and strong networking skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more flexible career contracts. Offer a small base salary or at the very least do not charge agents rent if they do not hit certain sales figures in the first year of their contract.

    Pros

    Met some nice people and thats it,

    Cons

    Place is run like a puppy mill,They charge for phone calls,business cards,envelopes and a desk fee.They make you work with a partner who takes half the fee after you set up appt.Management hopes you leave so they can pick up your renewal fees.Also be careful what you sign in way of contracting.They prey on young college kids to get the parents and friends to sign up,and once that is done so are you.They provide no leads or financial support.STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
