Irreplaceable internship experience

College Financial Representative (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

ProsSink or swim mentality. Given exact same responsibilities as a full-time employee. No coffee runs, making copies etc. Provides amazing sales and account management experience from the get-go

Cons100% commission compensation structure. Employees tend to get burnt out

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is a very hard industry to start out in. Try to foster the growth of the interns more.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working at NMFN was a lie. I'd say only do it if you have literally nowhere else to go
