I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Beautiful office, friendly atmosphere, and great training program.

Cons

It is sink or swim. You are given the training and you have a development specialist, but if you are not doing well, you are not making any money.

Advice to Management

There should be more stipends for people just starting out or possibly a draw.
