College Financial Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

ProsIf you are good at it, you will make a lot of money. I learned a lot in training. It is a good experience.

ConsIt is difficult to get clients when you are so young. I used up my network too quickly. You have to be really busy to make any kind of money.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good training. Offer to take some interns with you to some of your meeting so they can learn the ropes more quickly without having to burn through some of their potential clients.
