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

Pros

The company values and foundations for building a financial planning practice encourage teamwork and constant learning. For someone with an interest in Finance and looking to get experience as a in the field, even as a college intern, this is one of the best programs in the country.

Cons

The job and what comes with it aren't easy. The psychological toll of the work without immediate gratification beats people down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the program running strong and continue with furthered outreach to colleges and universities to bring in more interns.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Large support network if you want it. Flexibility. Organized program that fosters competition and thus success.

    Cons

    For the most part it tends to operate as a way for managers of the college program to tack on a few extra commissions by picking up the remnants left behind by departing interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's rated as a top-ten internship for a reason. Great program.

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

    Pros

    Company provides top-notch sales training that can be applied in all sales fields. Very challenging - if you can succeed it is excellent experience for future employment.

    Cons

    100% commission can be challenging. Challenging to overcome the popular views on whole life insurance vs term insurance. It is very rewarding if you can stick with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the skills of your employees.
