I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

Pros

Great culture, everyone that's been there more than 5 years is up beat and happy that they work there. If you can survive 5 years then you you have a 95% chance of working there for the rest of your life. After 5 years your income is easily over 100k. The hard part is staying in the business until year 3 or so.

Cons

-You get 4k to start and use but once that runs low or out you have to be good at sales to be able to earn money.
-If you hate calling people and talking on the phone, this job is not for you.

    Tough gig, but you learn a lot, even if you can't make it into a career.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, full autonomy with work.

    Cons

    That unlimited earning potential comes at a cost...unlimited amount of time needed to dedicate to being successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring large amounts of people to curb against the low retention rate is not an efficient way to set up your financial reps for their future.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The high level producers are very encouraging and very willing to sit down and talk with you, the products are the best on the market, nice signing bonus, good software, great learning experience

    Cons

    No base salary, my trainer was pretty poor but that will depend on the office, only teach 1 system that isn't very realistic, unless you can keep generating new leads, will be tough to make it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a process in place that doesn't just involve asking everyone you know for referrals
