I have been working at MassMutual full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedules. Excellent work / life balance. Great people. Rewarding work environment with the flexibility to take on additional responsibilities to build skills.

Cons

Opportunities for upward growth and mobility are limited and the organizational politics are considerably difficult to navigate. In many areas the leadership has trouble making decisions and the culture can be very self-serving.

Advice to Management

The best way to fix culture is from the top down. Process does not fix cultural issues like trust and communication.

    I worked at MassMutual full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent products. High ethical standards. Excellent brand recognition. As with any sales position, you efforts will determine what you earn. No limit on what you can do.

    Cons

    Since each office is operated by an independent General Agent, culture, training, staffing, etc can be very different from office to office. Administrative staff is paid by each GA, not the home office. GAs tend to be tight fisted with salaries and it can be reflected in quality.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in quality staff.

    Pros

    If you're looking for wonderful professional development support, this is the place to work. The education is also the best. The company flies out wholesalers that specialize in different products to help you better understand everything there is to know about insurance.

    Cons

    The learning curve is extremely large. It'll take you awhile to become great. It can be frustrating for a very long time if you are not comfortable with intentional failure.
