Insurance Agent (Former Employee) – Vienna, VA – January 23, 2013
Only positive, aggressive sales reps need apply. This job is not for everyone. You need to love to talk to people and work to get paid. No cushy salary here, you are on straight commission after 6 months. As in most Insurance related businesses, expect your employer to ask you to sell to your family and friends to get started (don't do it, you will regret it.)
Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – September 19, 2016
I learned alot working for this company. Aiming to obtain a Series 6 was very educational. I learned alot about the stock market and how life insurance policy may contain certain trades & options investments.
Financial Adviser (Current Employee) – Tempe, AZ – September 7, 2016
This is a dynamic and amazing job that challenges everyone in it. The people are wonderful, supportive and truly good human beings. The challenge is a long sales cycle and lots of hours needed to build your base of clientele.
Financial Services and Sales Professional (Current Employee) – Hato Rey, PR – September 5, 2016
Not the typical job and work environment. You are your "own boss" for many things. For example; you plan your own schedule and you choose how many hours your work. You need to pay for your own computer, parking, gas, milage, office space, etc. On the other hand the commission is great.
Operations Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – August 31, 2016
I processed documents for New Business, Life Insurance for high end clients. The pace was always frantic and I felt as if I was a robot working under very stressful conditions until a predesignated about was completed. Didn't matter the hours it took.
Excellent at mentoring and aiding future financial advisors.
Career Sampling Program as a Financial Advisor (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – August 31, 2016
Management clearly establishes steps to achieve success. Mentors are readily available and always able to provide assistance and guidance throughout the entire career sampling progam. On-board training and Contract A schooling were very valuable and helpful.
Data Center Operator (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – July 20, 2016
MassMutual is a very desirable job to work at, but be aware that despite Management stating that they're listening to you, they often times ignore what regular employees state. There's been times when management states to do something despite that being impossible to complete in the time frame allotted, which leads to sloppy, half-finished work that just gives everyone involved a harder time.
Co-workers are oftentimes enjoyable to work with and are more than willing to assist you regardless of if they're able to assist or not. They make the job much more bearable.
Benefits are very nice, but be aware that while you work at MassMutual, you are almost expected to work overtime at some point. This may be a plus for some, while a minus for others.
Despite this review being quite critical, the job is really not that bad at all and I found my time while there enjoyable. They certainly will cover all your needs at the campus by themselves.
IT Project Manager (Consultant) (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – June 12, 2016
It has been over 15 years since I have worked at MassMutual but have been in touch with many of my co-workers since then. My former department was large, but people worked as a team and respected each other. We worked hard, but got a lot accomplished.
