    What our Past Interns Have to Say:

    Jack, Investments - "One thing that surprised me was how my work was often an immediate value add. It was encouraging and rewarding to see my managers make use of my contributions for further analysis, presentations, and decision-making. My colleagues considered all my thoughts, making for a collaborative environment."

    Stephen, Operations - "Having the opportunity to partake in MassMutual’s Early Career Internship Program really opened my eyes to the corporate world and also helped me dismiss what I had previously heard about working at a Fortune 100 company. Everyone I encountered during my internship was willing to teach, help, mentor, or simply say "Hi". Every day I learned both new soft skills and technical skills, and I was able to notice my own progression as the summer went on. I was continually given the same work my colleagues were doing, so I was able to gain real Fortune 100 working experience in just one summer."

    Nithya, Marketing – "This summer has been such an amazing experience. My manager and mentor gave me projects that allowed me to truly make a lasting impact. The fact that I was doing important work really meant a lot to me, and I saw tangible results come out of my projects. The structure and support that the Early Career Program provides is also unparalleled. The Early Career Program team really cared about our professional and personal development, giving us the opportunity to participate in professional learning and networking opportunities throughout the summer. From this summer, I have discovered what I want to pursue in the career ahead of me, and for that I am beyond grateful to ECP and all the people that make it happen."

    An Insider's view of MassMutual

    What’s the vibe like in the office?

    We work in an open floor plan, so there is a lot of opportunity for networking across roles, teams and levels. Everyone is very friendly and welcomes the opportunity to get to know other people on the floor.

    Kristina

    Digital Adoption Team Lead

    What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

    You don’t think of insurance as a hotbed for innovation but the very nature of our organization, Digital Experience, is to reimagine how a 168-year old company does business with its customers. Our Design team takes pride in an inclusive design process with everyone invited to provide feedback, from Product to Engineering to QA.

    Maria

    Digital Lead - Design

    What makes someone successful on your team?

    Successful people on my team are: passionate, curious, receptive, and engaged. Each team member is expected to be passionate about the work that they do, and the domains in which they practice. They are always solving unique problems and must be curious about finding new solutions.

    David

    Digital Lead

    How do you empower your team to be more creative?

    I encourage my team to embark on ‘deep work’ at least once a week on a ‘meeting-free’ designated day. We have design reviews to brainstorm alternative ways to solve business problems from a software engineering point of view. We consider self-reflection and brainstorming to be fundamental components of creativity.

    Mike

    Head of Data Science Software Engineering

    How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

    One of our projects is an application we built for our Investment Mgmt team called ViPER (Visualizing Investment Portfolio Enhanced Reporting). The application makes it easy to manage reports and get insights from Data Science models. Now with ~150 active users, it reflects how we’re using DS to facilitate data driven decision processes across MM.
