Still developing diversity in ideas, staff - big opportunity here

Slow pace - can be frustrating for those wired to deliver at a faster pace
Low turnover and minimal outside influence stunt innovation opportunities because of low confidence if not invented internally

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very practical experience in the business world. Become comfortable phoning and conducting meetings. Test drive a career in the financial services industry. Allowed to set your own schedule.

    Cons

    Expected to try to sell to friends and family. Need to have tough skin to handle rejection. Compensation is mainly commission which is tough for college students.
