    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great training and you will learn more about personal finances than you will anywhere else. Great co-workers and mentors who answer any questions that you have. Commissions can be good if you can sell in the first place. Good internship to talk about in later interviews as you have to be self motivated and aware. Good for a resume builder and a stepping stone to better jobs.

    Cons

    Warm calling which is essentially trying to sell to your friends and family. This can get annoying and once you bring a friend or family member in they press you and press you get the sale which makes it feel like that is the only reason your there. Have to take a 40 hour course and pass a state test before you begin, which they fail to tell you when they offer the position. Don't count on it for a steady source of income as starting out it's tough to make sales. Commissions are lower than most other insurance companies. All in all you have to chase people and put in a lot of time and energy to sit down with people who may not even buy anything, and then you have to start from square one again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay higher commissions as it is very difficult to sell in this industry. Offer a salary the first few years in addition to commissions as a lot other companies in this industry do. Pay more stipends.
