    I worked at MassMutual as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work. Qualified workforce. Facility very nice. Very responsive workforce

    Cons

    Punative management. Terminate consultants quickly with no notice. If consultant stay away from there. Processes one area enforces is opposite to what other organizatiobs allow creating failure situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its not 1950. Update management style

    MassMutual Systems Analyst

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big company benefits. They actually had a full time physical therapist available for employees. It is a beautiful monolith building with Italian marble walls. Decent work hours and environment.

    Cons

    There is lots of snow during the winter and you might not be able to find your car in their huge parking lot. Typical large company politics, but that is to be expected.

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy and flexibility. You can do a lot of things here as long as you declare it as an outside business activity. Much better than a Northwestern Mutual, I was there for three years and got sick of there BS about Whole Life

    Cons

    No base salary for producers. Most reps will never make over $100k. The industry as a whole is sick and needs change.

    Pros

    Great compensation and benefits and flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Anything such as marketing materials or trying to do evens is expensive with this company, be ready to join an am spirit group or you wont get much from this job. Also be ready to train your self because the managers here do not tell you what need to do in order to sell certain products. Best advice do all the training listed maybe tedious but least you would get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a base salary to those just starting out maybe the first 90 days. Also make the managers be accountable for the agents. Felt like a free for all I know your supposed to be a business owner here however your still an associate and you need guidance. My manager was often too busy to spend time going over things I needed help with.

    Pros

    Great Training Program
    Solid Company
    Great Values and Ethics
    Alot of products and services to offer the clients
    No Cap on earning potential
    GA and Assistant GA are Fabulous

    Cons

    No very well known here in CA. Very well known on the East Coast; name recognition and more advertising is needed. Would have been better if a new person to the business join a year after they are in the business not NEW....too hard to get traction and the programs don't give you enough time to get your book off the ground.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they run a great company
