I worked at MassMutual

Pros

Fair compensation, consistent positioning of business line

Cons

Are opinions truly valued? Arrogant approach to market?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management team is aggressive and wants to win (good), but they are not necessarily humble in terms of seeing their own organizational flaws (unacceptable). They can stand to learn more - and truly listen - to all levels of employees. Employees take notice and many talk behind mgt backs (mgt levels as well)..... While opinions are sought, I saw time and again that if they are different than mgt, you're up a creek without a paddle. In my time there, I was treated fairly well...but I realized it was not a productive/healthy working environment with threatening innuendo (usually disguised with smiles and shrugs) if you do not fall in line. Then watch your back. If you don't mind being a 'yes' person, it's the company for you.

    I worked at MassMutual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great products to offer both for individuals and businesses

    Cons

    They focus on putting everyone no matter what age into Whole Life. It's not right as an investment for everyone. They're Term is WAY over priced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it mandatory for your advisors to get their Series 6/63 so they are not forced to make money via Whole Life off of people when those people should not have whole life.
