    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Limitless Potential, with a client first attitude. It truly is the #1 company if you do your research.

    Cons

    It takes determination, skill, and a never say die attitude. Some people just don't have all the right attributes to make it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize the need for new reps to be smart with their money. I see guys go and blow all they have and then have a bad month and can't pay bills.
