    I have been working at MassMutual as an intern

    Pros

    Great work environment and very friendly people.
    Although it is commission based and you run your own practice, you are encouraged to do 'Joint-Work', i.e. work together with other agents.
    Financially rewarding if you put the hours in.
    Have the full support of the company behind you.

    Cons

    Solely commission based salary can be challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and don't lose focus of the business we are in, which is one for the people, and specifically helping people.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, solid reputation

    Cons

    You have to sell MassMutual products to keep health benefits and your job!

    Advice to Management

    As a former MetLife career agent, I believe management should embrace competition and let the advisor and client decide what product is best vs. forcing us to lead with a MassMutual product to keep our benefits. Shame on you MassMutual!
