    I worked at MassMutual full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some good people and the cafeteria is decent.

    Cons

    Time off policy, compensation, environment, culture. There is no work/life balance. Success is defined by the number of days and hours worked, rather that skill and ability. The MMWay office environment does not offer even the slightest amount of privacy, which makes it difficult to have quiet place to focus on your work. Working from home is frowned upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move from vacation, personal days, and sick time to a PTO bank. The current system is old school and encourages employees to call out "sick". Listen to your employees. Morale is low and management is out of touch. The message from the front line is so sanitized by the time it reaches senior management that it no longer reflects reality.

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

    Pros

    Good leaders, good company name recognition amongst consumers, good trips provided for those with big sales numbers, good balance between work and outside life.

    Cons

    No salary, MUST know lots of potential buyers going into the business, no leads given, not enough sales training, sales managers aren't particularly accessible to the people they work with (they're often out on their own meetings trying to make sales).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your representatives leads to call, fix things sooner (this agency went without a General Agent for about 3 months), do more sales training, create a less stuffy and "generic corporate" atmosphere.
