I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for more than a year

Pros

My internship at Northwestern was one of the best summers I have ever had. You can make a lot of good money meet a lot of great people. The networking opportunities of this internship is probably the most prominent attribute to this internship. The development is great and go to Milwaukee for the Annual meeting. You will not regret it.

Cons

The experience is quite relative. Some offices are the total opposite of my own experience. Try to get a feel for the people during your interview. Be prepared to dial old friends and family trying to sell them things. However, NFMN products are superb, so it was easy for me to have a good attitude about selling to people I am close to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Company provides you with paid training that helps you learn the industry and sales techniques. They keep you accountable for your productivity which prevents you form side tracking. The products are also very good.

    Cons

    This is 100% commission job. They ask you to call all your friends and relatives to prospect. They not necessarily asking you to sell to your family but they do push you to ask your relatives for people that they know to whom you can sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give some base salary to your employees.
