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

Pros

Great weekly skill builder meetings
Through amounts of training

Cons

It's a sales job so if you aren't making sales, you're not going to cut it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Warn the interns a bit more about what they are going to be really doing earlier on.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Northwestern Mutual is a stable company with a winning business model. They truly care about their policy holders

    Cons

    Sell large quantities of whole life insurance, which is a product that is slowly losing interest in the eyes of the consumer. NM is reluctant to begin selling more modern products.
