Featured Review

Current Employee - Developer

I have been working at MassMutual full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Great people to work with - Good work life balance - Management is supportive and employee friendly - Latest technology - Flexible work arrangements - Challenging development projects -... Career aspirations are respected - Ability to transfer to other positions in the company

Cons

- Onboarding can be difficult for new employees. They're working on making it better. - Flexible seating can be challenging, at times, but you get used to it.

Advice to Management

Continue to improve the onboarding process. For developers, project onboarding is in a really good place. However, business procedures are not explained well during onboarding. Learning as you go is... ok because everyone here is great and willing to help, but it would be better to explain some of the business procedures more clearly in an employee's first week or two.

Current Employee - Insurance Agent

I have been working at Bankers Life full-time for less than a year

Pros

Set your own schedule and base salary. Helping others who are easily being taken advantage of. Continued education at your fingertips. Great open door policy with management. Company provides... leads.

Cons

Leads are oftentimes outdated and the system needs to be monitored and updated better. No healthcare as we are 1099 employees.
