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.

Former Employee - Financial Advisor

I worked at Edward Jones full-time for more than a year

Pros

Incredible training. Supportive network of advisors. You are given every opportunity to succeed with all the right tools. I was never turned away from another advisor when I needed help.

Cons

Perhaps more emphasis on sales training, and more exposure to the appointment process. Aside from that, I have nothing bad to say about the company. It is just a difficult industry to work in.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing! Just make sure your new hires are given the opportunity to see first and second appointments, and not just annual review appointments. Maybe provide some additional... sales training as well.
