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

    Pros

    Good compensation if you produce, friendly work environment

    Cons

    When they recruit new sales representatives, they give you the impression that as long as you are licensed, they will immediately get you on board to sell their products. My managing associate was slow in beginning the process and made you wait a couple weeks before he could get a list of 200 prospects, and another interview with you. Overall their recruiting is shady, because they do not tell you all of what is required to produce for them, they just tell you "All you need is your license and its all good". They also don't tell you about the semi-mandatory training classes that are completely unpaid and are three times a week. I was only told about the importance of these training classes, after I had gone through the licensing requirements. They also don't tell you that unpaid training is expected for over 1 year, in the interview process the impression is that training is only a few week thing, and from there your mentor will give you flexible one-on-one time.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about what the job entails, and don't give recruits the impression that they are completely free and independent, they are still being held down by company policies.

    Pros

    None, to share. They are eating up my money.

    Cons

    Refuses to give money back, when I no longer work there and has no corporate number to call.

    Advice to Management

    Give your number to your customers so that problems with monies owed can be refered to.
