- There are many great people to work with
- Company has a clearly articulated strategy with the focus on its policy holders

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

    Pros

    For a commissioned agent, Mass Mutual is the company to work for. You work for Mass Mutual directly. Great commissions and benefits. Great product line up and a very high premium placed on ethics.

    Cons

    Company works on a General Agency basis. Each office is in affect a franchise and each General Agent has leeway in how he or she operates. The GA definitely sets the tone of the office. If you looking at Mass Mutual you should definitely interview with different GAs (there are three in the Los Angeles / Orange County area). Also, staff positions works for the GA, not the company. Therefore salary and benefits can vary greatly from office to office.

    Advice to Management

    Local staff should have access to home office benefits. (Note - the city listed below is not the actual city. Don't want to give away my office).
