Hi guys, im a Life Insurance agent transitioning to a Financial Advisor. Ive recently been recruited by both Baystate Financial(subsidiary of Mass Mutual) and Nortwestern Mutual.

Baystate seems more hands off withgreat resources and a team at my disposal. That opportunity would put my home office in a neighboring state a little over an hour away; which they dont seem concerned with as they are giving the opportunity to build my practice in part virtually.

Nortwestern seems to be more hands on and would want me in the office more which is only 20 minutes down the road.

Im having a hard time deciding which is the best for a new advisor really looking to build a lasting, growing practice. Anybody have thoughts or experiences to share on either of these firms?
