Very dissapointing.
Insurance Agent (Former Employee) –  San Ramon, CAMay 25, 2016
Was hired with the expectation of being trained with product knowledge.
It turned out they wanted me to bring MassMutual a network of possible accounts.
I have no natural network.

College Agent Intern (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCMay 12, 2016
This is a self, sales driven job. You have to be willing to put your name and face out there to find people to work for you. Commission based pay is psychologically stressful.
Pros
Work when you want
Cons
Commission based pay

Wonderful environment, lost of incentive and reward
Insurance sales agent (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 11, 2016
Start the day with training classes about products, thourough knowledge of product is very important. Prospecting or recruiting people and booking appointment from leads . Make a presentation, find out more about client financial situation. Filling the application, submitting to the home office and wait for application to be processed. Approved or rejected application, medical appointment with nurse for blood work. Delivery of application and illustration of policy. Learned a lot on potential customer.
Pros
Being paid what you are worth because compensation is based on your production
Cons
Commissions only

Great life/work balance
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sleepy Hollow, NYMay 3, 2016
The company has a great work / life balance by allowing employees to work from home 2 days each week. However, the culture is such that a lot of animosity exist between racial groups from different cultures. This creates a hostile environment where you will not get any assistance from some employees of a different culture and this hinders team work and a team spirit.
Pros
Great work / life policies
Cons
Unprofessional culture

Decent company with a so-so atmosphere
Suitability Specialist (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 24, 2016
I believe this company used to be much better to work for. There is a lot of work, only 45 minute lunch breaks, and the pay is on the low side. Any good worker will get frustrated working here and will eventually look to leave. Management has their heads in the clouds.
Pros
good healthcare coverage
Cons
short breaks, pay
