I worked at MassMutual full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good training and mentorship
management really cares
if you make it, you make it big - unlimited commission possibility

Cons

Very difficult to do well
No real financial support - income is essentially all commission based; even if you get on the stipend, they are very coy about how easy it is to lose it
Somewhat though products to sell

    Advice to Management

    This is a VERY tough business, but if you stick the first couple years of learning out, you can be very successful. Have a good +/-6 months of fallback savings to cover bills/ expenses when starting out.
