    Pros

    Make as much $ as you want. You are your own boss.

    Sh*t home office staff. People there are just stupid and drag a$$ on everything.

    Management can suck it. They only watch out for who they choose.

    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.
