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

Pros

Top 10 internship program, best whole life insurance policies in the industry, unmatched recognition, great joint-work partners, get out what you put in, work your own hours

Cons

Life Insurance is a hard sell, pushing products onto clients, stressful, ups and downs, some older reps feel superior to others, trip to annual was extremely expensive and they push it on all the interns to attend

Advice to Management

Give interns an extra week of training, pay for their trip to annual in Milwaukee

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

    Pros

    Great training. Make your own hours and control your own destiny with the company. You can build a great commission base if you stick with the company long enough.

    Cons

    Need a cult mentality. They definately expect you to "drink the kool-aid" and be completely devoted to the company. If you can you'll probably do well.


  2. "Excellent Company with Competitive PAy"

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative, sales driven environment that helped motivate all memebers to perform their best.
    Emphasis on product quality, which proved to be true by all comparisons.

    Cons

    Sales based industry requires you to start running immediately with little time to adapt. Not so much a con as a challenge.
