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

    Pros

    Products are great. They pay for training and all initial licensing. They have an assistance program to get you on your feet while you building your practice. Great mentoring program.

    Cons

    100% commission. A great target warm market to have is families just starting out. If you don't have the people to call and the persistence to prospect you will not get very far.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out. Initially brought in for an interview for a commission sales rep position, but this wasn't what I was looking for. Interview with a number of other hiring managers over the course of several months. Eventually I received a formal offer.
