    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ability to build your own business- This opportunity allows you to build your own process, client base and business model. There are opportunities for joint work with other advisers who are experienced.

    Selfless management team- They management team here does everything in their power to help you achieve your personal goals in regards to building your own business. They ensure that you are on track and hold you to the expectations you set for yourself.

    You get what you put in- This career is not for the faint of heart or those who want something handed to them. If you do not wake up every day to find people that you can help educate and provide solutions to their problems then this isn't a job for you.

    Hands on help- There are numerous ways the office and staff help advisors with their business. The training program here has become top notch and is designed to get you up and running as quickly as possible. The staff is exceptionally helpful with marketing events, business coordinating and creating an incredible client experience

    Cons

    100% Commission Base

    This is not a career path for everyone. You cannot sit around and hope for clients to seek you out.

    The learning curve is steep but the joint work partners help fix that.
