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

Pros

For an internship it paid very well. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help with most anything.

Cons

The whole internship felt rushed. I never felt like I had the opportunity to develop relationships with my clients that would lead to long-term success. Management was more focused on financial benefits than anything else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the 10 lives quota for interns. Let them get any license that would help them and their clients.

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

    Pros

    The people I met with were very knowledgeable.
    They have mentors that can help you along the way.
    If you can wait a year or more you will see results.

    Cons

    It is a 100% commission based.
    Selling to friends and family initially.
    Be able to take a lot of NO's

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

    Pros

    Limitless potential; flexibility with schedule once you have built a bullet proof practice; incredible opportunity; great culture; awesome benefits; you get to help people create and sustain financial security for themselves and their family/business

    Cons

    You have to work harder than anyone else you know to see people and fight to see people; prospecting in this environment is very difficult; you are selling insurance; you have to follow a terrific method of activity, called the Granum Method, which is awesome and incredibly difficult to actually do!
