    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good support from lower mgmt
    Strong company

    Cons

    Poor training
    Extremely dry material
    Must be extremely self-starting and have a good base of financial connection
    Commission only
    To succeed, it must consume your life
    No pay, until you are licensed (which could take them forever to get you through the process)
    Constant feeling that you are only there so your manager gets a bonus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have your interns in home office read material better to ease people into the licensing process quicker. It is very unmotivating to be stuck in a process for months at a time, knowing that you can't make any money.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Top 10 internship program, best whole life insurance policies in the industry, unmatched recognition, great joint-work partners, get out what you put in, work your own hours

    Cons

    Life Insurance is a hard sell, pushing products onto clients, stressful, ups and downs, some older reps feel superior to others, trip to annual was extremely expensive and they push it on all the interns to attend

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns an extra week of training, pay for their trip to annual in Milwaukee
