I have been working at MassMutual full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

friendly co-workers help make a poor working environment bearable.

Cons

Very poor leadership and a poor work/life balance. Culture is old school and generally against work from home arrangements. Tendency to be understaffed and excessive overtime is the norm. Not an open culture. Upper level management/executives are out of touch and not open to employee input for improving a very poor work environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

what you are doing right now isn't working. when you ask employees for input on your many surveys actually listen to what is being said.

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very good office staff; nice offices; quality products; ease of doing business; benefits

    Cons

    upper management not involved with day to day operations and not approachable or gets defensive; lower management robotic with their teachings; no help generating sales and no financial support to get started; appears that established agents have succeeded off the backs of people who quit within first year or two as their first sales are low relative to their income of residuals; worst case of good ol'e boy network you can imagine; unpleasant senior agents; we are asked to write in to "Best Places to Work in VA" so we can win; very unfavorable to women agents

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get in touch with agents coming along and ask what they need today not preach what used to be done 20 years ago; come off some of the money you all make and help new people get a good footing; don't make it so obvious what senior agents earn as it is very disheartening to see favoritism be rewarded

    Pros

    Corporate strategy is right on the money.
    Company stayed solid even through the worst of 2008.

    Cons

    Inconsistent application of work/life balance policies.
    Little to no career growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the trenches, RPG integration not going all that well.
