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

Pros

- Intense training
- They pay for you to get your insurance license, which you can use to work for any insurance company
- They teach you all the skills you need to be successful
- Great potential to earn a lot of money
- Treated like a full-time rep; are able to truly see if this is the career for you

Cons

- I was mislead on the difficulty of prospecting/finding leads
- Was told I would be given a list of potential clients, but was not & had to resort to cold calling
- Long sales cycle
- You're selling life insurance :-/

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more realistic view of how you will do during the internship. Training is a bit overwhelming (too much information too fast)

    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.
