Was not what I expected

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at MassMutual

Pros

Good Company history and weekly training is good

Cons

You are not on a salary or even a draw for that matter, yet they want you to document all of your calls and have a pipeline of prospects and work 50 hours a week. After 2-3 months, they are going to start charging you for back office help and supplies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

give a draw or base salary. your turnover is really high

    -Chance to help people
    -Your own business

    Cons

    100% comission

    -Learn as you go
    -SPLIT comissions when starting out
    - ~70% turnover = your clients go to someone else when you decide to change careers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a VERY tough business, but if you stick the first couple years of learning out, you can be very successful. Have a good +/-6 months of fallback savings to cover bills/ expenses when starting out.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
