    I have been working at MassMutual

    Pros

    Great training program. Good experienced Advisors willing to work with you and help you to get your business started. Competitive products.

    Cons

    Being 100% commission is daunting but ultimately they believe that it will motivate you to earn and learn faster. It also creates extra pressure of not making money for awhile possibly .

    Current Employee - Financial Services Representative in Tampa, FL (US)

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The agency I worked in had a great culture. It felt like a family; everyone is going through the same thing when you start out in the position. It is not easy but if you work hard, you will succeed.

    You have the flexibility to do as you wish as long as you produce and hit numbers. You could theoretically take 6 months off if you hit your numbers in the first six months (but then who wants to loose out on the potential to make more money for the next six months of the year!?)

    Cons

    Difficult to manage learning everything you need to learn, as well as going out and finding clients.
