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

Pros

Run your own business, make a lot of commission, no ceiling on earnings, great sales training, ability to make your own schedule

Cons

Very difficult to make it to the point where you are considered successful, long hours, lots of daily travel to meetings, work tends to take over your entire life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just keep supporting people new to the business and instill faith in the work we do.

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

    Pros

    You are your own boss. You create your own schedule, and work under your own will. There is no money-making ceiling.

    Cons

    The money you make (commission) depends on your ability to get people to sit down in front of you. It is also vital that you prospect well, and build trust with clients if you want to be successful.

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

    Pros

    you get out what you put in. Decent work environment. Eager to hire new talent. Entrepreneurial sense encouraged. Commission based.

    Cons

    No real opportunities for advancement neither upwards nor lateral. Make you call on friends and family. Feels like a scam when youre calling on potential customers. You're selling insurance.
