I worked at MassMutual full-time

Pros

Great Benefits along with exam reimbursements if you are in the Actuarial Student Program.

Cons

They could do better with the exam reimbursements for the actuarial program because they only reimburse One try. After that, you only get reimbursed if you pass the exam

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All in all, you guys are doing a good job!

    I worked at MassMutual full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great upside compensation potential for as long as you can stay out of the cross hairs....

    Cons

    culture of managing by fear. The average tenure of a MassMutual GA is only about 6 years. Roughly 10% of their GA's are terminated each year and once a GA leaves MassMutual, they do all they can to "blacklist" and keep the GA's from moving to competitors.

    There is also an unethical culture in the compliance and legal areas of the company. company has a long history of circling the wagons whenever they make a mistake and look for someone to "throw under the bus" Putting agents and GA's in financial ruin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire most of your legal and compliance team and try admitting when the company makes mistakes instead of looking for someone to throw under the bus.....
