No opinion of CEO

Pros

Excellent products.
Excellent commission rates.
MMLISI is a very good broker-dealer for securities business.
MassMutual agents are not captive, so even if you work at a MassMutual office you can still submit business with other companies. (And if you do the business through ASH Brokerage, they even count somewhat towards your sales targets.)

Cons

Training programs are weak for new agents.
Products are very high-end and are geared to experienced professionals and the wealthy.
If you don't sell you don't get paid.

Advice to Management

Give new agents more of a chance. Invest in your fresh blood instead of telling them to come up with a list of all of their friends and family members and throwing them to the wolves.

    Pros

    Financial gain and independence are keys to a happy work life balance.

    Cons

    It takes a while to build a successful practice.

    Advice to Management

    Good training program. I feel like a more complete adviser than at NML. The product training is superior and I have learned creative ways to fund insurance programs, such as annuities, etc.
