I worked at MassMutual full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

In the home office, commradre was noticable. People were very friendly and there was a nice work atmosphere. The company does offer some wonderful products, some of which are bar none, some of the best whole life and disability contracts in the industry.

Cons

No room for growth. Upper management just wants to hire their friends.
Moved the company (Enfield location) to Springfield...glad I left before this happened.
Management is completely clueless. Hired McKinsey Consultants to come in and "clean house" It was not a good atmosphere to be working in. Very depressing

Advice to Management

Get rid of management and start over. Literally. The upper level executives are out of touch with their employees. I would have liked to have stayed there for longer but with them firing people at their own will and without concern (and I mean really good people let go) they have no concern at all for the welfare of their employees. It's all about the bottom line and how much Crandall and the rest of the upper management team makes in salary and bonuses.

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Extreme flexibility (potential con if abused)
    -OPPORTUNITY to make a lot of money
    -Chance to help people
    -Your own business

    Cons

    100% comission
    -Takes a couple YEARS to build business
    -Lots of cold calling/phoning
    -Learn as you go
    -SPLIT comissions when starting out
    - ~70% turnover = your clients go to someone else when you decide to change careers

    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.
