    I have been working at MassMutual part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The position of the company is really good, it's in Columbia Tower in Downtown, Seattle. The working environment is pretty nice and every worker is kind, so it's easy to get one well with them. And the most important thing is that you can learn a lot of useful skill about finances during working. Also, the working hour is really flexible.

    Cons

    I think at the beginning, the salary might be few because you need to build your own business foundation.

    Advice to Management

    I think it's a really good company and it might get better if you can give more opportunity to international students.

    Pros

    There's a lot to work for right now. A good team is developing and looking to do big things.

    Cons

    It was a good experience. Some of the negative points are that since it is a 160 year old company some of the ideas which are necessary today take time to come through the system.

    I have been working at MassMutual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a truly collaborative office. The focus on providing the best possible planning for the client. They advocate an open architecture which allows agents to shop the market for the best possible solutions for your clients. Training has been overhauled and is top notch. You aren't a number at this firm, they care about you and your ability to succeed.

    Cons

    The returns on a successful career in this industry are great. But you have to be willing to work for it. Training, management and culture help - but ultimately its on you.

    Pros

    Management knows what they're doing. The staff was extremely helpful and my Sales Manager taught me a lot. I am very new to the financial world and I was really impressed with training. I really liked the people around me and the President was in the office all the time. That is not something you see very often.

    Cons

    I wish there was more time to learn. Everyone has so much knowledge to teach and I feel like there's not enough time to learn it all.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at MassMutual as an intern

    Pros

    I am very excited for joining the Boston Solutions Center Development Team, the team has been developing fast and more and more creative. That's my dream working place.

    Cons

    No cons so far, the team is expanding now, maybe it will get crowded.

    Pros

    Worked at Commonwealth Financial Group, wonderful company. The best training ive ever had from incredibly knowledgeable advisors. Great atmosphere in the office makes the business world seem fun!

    Cons

    The more you do the more you get. Could be good or bad but if you're very driven you'll find yourself always working as an advisor to make more money. Alot of pressure to do build youre own book of business

    Advice to Management

    keep up the great work, you are all amazing
