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

    Pros

    Good support from lower mgmt
    Strong company

    Cons

    Poor training
    Extremely dry material
    Must be extremely self-starting and have a good base of financial connection
    Commission only
    To succeed, it must consume your life
    No pay, until you are licensed (which could take them forever to get you through the process)
    Constant feeling that you are only there so your manager gets a bonus

    Advice to Management

    Have your interns in home office read material better to ease people into the licensing process quicker. It is very unmotivating to be stuck in a process for months at a time, knowing that you can't make any money.
