I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

For an internship it paid very well. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help with most anything.

Cons

The whole internship felt rushed. I never felt like I had the opportunity to develop relationships with my clients that would lead to long-term success. Management was more focused on financial benefits than anything else.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the 10 lives quota for interns. Let them get any license that would help them and their clients.

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

    Pros

    I was able to fully test drive this flexible and rewarding career as a student. It has given me tons of connections and I have developed as a professional. I'm only 1 year into my undergrad school of business and I feel like I'm miles ahead of everyone in my classes.

    Cons

    It is extremely challenging, which is not always a bad thing. They provide you with all the tools to be successful, but it all comes down to how much you put into it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with all of the training!
