    I worked at MassMutual full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    As a mutual company, MassMutual operates for the benefit of its policy owners, not stockholders. They take a long term view and they have a good growth plan. Dividends have been paid year over year and the company is financially strong and well-rated.

    Cons

    As with many insurance carriers there have been numerous reorganizations through the years. Every time one happens management and staff are left with stopped projects and rework that is frustrating. There are many layers of management and competition for resources.

    Pros

    I think it takes a certain type of person to work at a company like MassMutual. If this is the kind of work you love, your potential is unlimited.

    Cons

    I didn't see a lot of room for growth for myself. Perhaps it just had to do with the fact that I wasn't interested in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting people and helping them reach their goal. I think the leadership at MassMutual is great - people need to utilize it
