Financial Representative Intern

I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

Pros

Supportive of the interns, provided the necessary training to get started, provided necessary resources to succeed.

Great experience!

Cons

Commission and salary. You make the money you worked for. If you really want this as a full time job, you must go out there and prospect. NM doesn't give you any leads. That's kind of hard for an intern whose market is the 19-23 year olds

    Pros

    Great Training Programs! They really invest in their interns.

    The annual meeting in Milwaukee. Hear the company's top executives speak and motivate.

    Work you do for your clients can really have a positive effect on their lives.

    Cons

    Compensation is heavily commissioned based.

    Not easy selling financial securities. Have to be wired to constantly be selling.

    Pros

    Northwestern Mutual's management is very supportive of the interns and the learning process that you have to go through with this job.

    Cons

    The only problem I would see with this career is the limited growth possibilities, because the skills you gain and lisences only apply to this field.
