Pros

THe best reason to work at Mass Mutual would be to have more freedom within your field. It was fun.

The biggest downside I experienced while working at Mass Mutual was the lack of guidance or direction from my sales manager.

Advice to Management

My advice to management in regards to leadership, would be to have your sale's managers give more guidance and direction.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible hours, decent benefits, good cafeteria, convenient free parking, health club, good medical department. That about does it.

    Cons

    Inadequate training, lack of current documentation, clique-ish structure and access to resources, poor control of testing and production environments, significant understaffing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as assets, not liabilities. There is a definite lack of structure and procedures need to be clarified and enforced.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The senior members are very knowledgeable and willing to help you advance in your career in sales, and some of the products are the best in the industry

    Cons

    -They expect you to start by selling to your family and friends, and don't provide you with any leads
    - very difficult if you don't have a good network and just got out of school, even though they assure you that you can succeed if you want
    - all commissions: No salary, No guarantees.

    Advice to Management

    don't hire people right out of school; they are set up to fail. Help new employees find clients and take them on appointments with you
