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

Pros

1. Compensation 2. Great overall company 3. Learned a ton about sales and insurance 4. Met some great people who I still keep in contact with

Cons

1. Tough to build a market as a young college kid, but all the resources were there to help me succeed 2. A lot of upfront costs

Advice to Management

Give a small base salary to help recent college graduates get on their feet.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (Less than a 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 Management

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