    Pros

    Financially strong company. Great reputation in industry for paying claims. I hear that employees in non-production related roles don't have to work as much overtime.

    Cons

    With the economic downturn around 2008, like many companies, MassMutual stopped filling positions that became vacant due to attrition. Managers told the employees in production environments that they would simply have to get the work done with the staff they had left. They then began requiring staff to work X# of hours/ week of unpaid overtime. This has spiraled into an unfortunate work environment where the employees have to put in 5, 10, even 15 hours per week of unpaid overtime, on a regular basis, almost year-round. There is no way that you can work here and have a normal family life or social life. You can work 12 hours/ day all week and then still be told on Friday that you have to put in 5 more hours on Saturday. Huge sales contest every Sept-Dec- OT is even worse, vacation time not really permitted. Everyone in this type of role is trying to leave. Health benefits are sub-par. Ridiculous open work environments (no cubicle walls) to promote collaboration, even in roles where this is not appropriate.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the enormous bonuses senior leaders are being paid a bit so you can afford to hire enough employees to manage the work and have a life. You are relying on your staff to work excessive free overtime as your normal way of managing business. Don't say you value work/life balance when your management philosophy proves your don't. As the economy improves, more and more people will be leaving.

    Pros

    MassMutual is a great company w. very competitive products and services.

    Cons

    Local mgt. for the Raleigh-Durham agency simply cannot be trusted at all. Very adept at going back on their word and burning bridges. With a flame-thrower.
