I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great Training, and looks good on the old resume. You are your own boss essentially so you dictate your schedule and how much you make.

Cons

100% Commission. If you are not from the area you are employed in or do not have a large number of contacts, be ready for some hard work and tough times.

Advice to Management

Work on possible brokerage positions with good clients that consistently meet new prospects, by offering the referrer a cut of the commission. Capital Financial Group already does this with their Reps.

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

    Pros

    Make your own schedule and you get to be out interacting with clients. All commission, so for people who want to work hard and sell insurance.

    Cons

    The job is basically asking you to sell life insurance to your friends and family, which is uncomfortable to some.

    Advice to Management

    Let the interns know what they are getting themselves into!
