I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Likely the best form of sales training/ experience out there if you're willing to work on 100% commission. You eat what you kill so if you are hesitant about dialing the phone i.e. cold-calling, you will not last long.

Cons

You must sell right away but if you are new to financial services/ insurance products you likely will not have much product knowledge. I would spend time learning about the products before applying and you will be way ahead of the curve.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility and the ability to work with client to help them get to a better life. With hard work and drive I create security for my clients and myself.

    Cons

    It takes hard work and self discipline. If you are looking for an easy show up and get a paycheck type of job this isn't for you.
