    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Sales does have some potential.

    Cons

    Sales is quite a tough thing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell people what they are in for from the start instead of that veil of mystery called "Financial Advisor", when it really means, insurance salesperson and not a CFP.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Get to work with senior executives and go on meetings with them which helps you learn the process. Good commission.

    Cons

    Sales is not for everyone. Cold calling is a lot of rejection. They also push you to contact friends and family which can be uncomfortable.
