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

    Pros

    A great environment to grow in knowledge and in experience in the financial services field. The system is meant to put you in a position to sink or swim. It is a simple system, follow it, and you will succeed. And there are great rewards. Financially, and in many other ways as well.

    Cons

    It is productivity driven. If you don't produce you'll flounder. In my opinion this is a Pro; this company requires its associates to be driven to grow themselves and make themselves better at their craft.
    Primarily focused on risk management and insurance in the beginning. Although this is also a pro, because to be an adept financial guy you really should understand the defensive side of things.

    Advice to Management
