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

Pros

Sky is the limit with income and time flexibility. Be prepared to start your own business. 100% commitment is needed for this career to have a chance at success.

Cons

No base salary.
Constant accountability for numbers (phone calls, appointments, sales, etc). This is good and bad. Meetings every morning to go over numbers get old.

Advice to Management

Don't lose the conservative values this company was founded on.

    Pros

    money is good and the future possibilities are encouraging. literally made calls day in and day out but worth it for the experience

    Cons

    extreme hours and minimal breaks. cold calling gets a bit tedious and you are not giving someone really to mentor.
