Nice Place

Intern (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at MassMutual full-time for less than a year

ProsExtreme flexibility (potential con if abused)
-OPPORTUNITY to make a lot of money
-Chance to help people
-Your own business

Cons100% comission
-Takes a couple YEARS to build business
-Lots of cold calling/phoning
-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 Senior ManagementThis 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
