    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.
