    Pros

    Flexible hours, opportunity to move up and boost own pay quickly, incredibly helpful and friendly staff in the Lake Oswego office. Management truly cares about employees and will do everything they can to make sure they are accommodating the people who put the effort in. Plus they have tickets to absolutely everything.

    Cons

    Not an easy job to pick up and be successful in immediately...will take more training and learning than the average 9-5

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

    Pros

    When hired on with MassMutual, I was promised a great environment with a strong, positive culture, and that is exactly what I got. Walking into the office, everyone is so friendly and supportive and my time here has been very rewarding. The work our agents do is important and has a positive impact on others, and that is something to work hard for.

    Cons

    This business is not something that is easy and given to you on a silver platter. It requires hard work, determination and time, to build your own practice. The tools are all provided, but it is up to the individual to use them and stick with it in order to achieve their goals. From what i have seen, the reward is worth the time and effort it takes to get the work done.

    I have been working at MassMutual as an intern

    Pros

    They helped me to get my Life Accident and Health License and re-imbursed me for the pre course, test, and licensing fees.

    Cons

    As its commission driven, there is no guaranteed pay until you make a sale.

    I have been working at MassMutual part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible and accommodating, very loyal to staff, generous with resources/training opportunities, and overall, a great company to work for

    Cons

    My salary is not as high as other companies in the Bay Area. But what MassMutual Northern California lacks in compensation, it more than makes up for with how it treats its employees. As a working mother, I could not ask for more flexibility. I'm allowed to make my own schedule, work from home, and given a lot of freedom to work without having to sacrifice time with my children

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people run the operation in Charleston, SC. I can't say enough good things about the people.

    Cons

    Commission only. You best have at least enough money to survive for one year. Or lots of friends and relatives that will purchase policies from you to get you started. If you can do this...then it could be a very lucrative career.

    Pros

    Wonderful People! The staff at Lake Oswego truly cares for and respects each other, as well as, the agents. Our agency provides the best support to our agents while they work to build a practice. They appreciate hard work and strive to see our agents succeed

    Cons

    Building an business is tough but with the right tools, the right mindset and the right support, this career will provide a fulfilling career of serving others. An agent can see success in his/her career as long as they are willing to put in the consistent time and effort it takes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the best support and encouragement to the advisors. Continue to nurture the supportive culture.
