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

Pros

Sink or swim mentality. Given exact same responsibilities as a full-time employee. No coffee runs, making copies etc. Provides amazing sales and account management experience from the get-go

Cons

100% commission compensation structure. Employees tend to get burnt out

Advice to Management

It is a very hard industry to start out in. Try to foster the growth of the interns more.

    Great Work Life Balance

    Cons

    The company has some growing pains. They also are not fully utilzing their field force for leadership opportunities or growth. There is such a distance between the field force and the corporate folks it has become difficult to bridge.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Up the Good Work.
    You have plenty of leaders in the field force that you are not utilizing.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity for self-motivated individuals who want to work closely with clients.

    Cons

    It is difficult to create a client base over the course of a summer, and people are often reluctant to trust their finances to an intern.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more communication between interns and more experienced financial representatives.
