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

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential
    Create your own schedule

    Cons

    No base salary
    Must sell to friends and Family
    Push whole life/ permanent life insurance as though it's an investment. The actual rate of return on this product is extremely low. This will ultimately lead to missed opportunity for clients that could have been investing in the market (even safe investments such as muni bonds and highly rated corporate bonds will yield higher returns)
    Management does not care about your long term success. They will try to use all of our resources to push their product on your friends and family. Your friends and family will not look at you the same, rather they see you as a salesman looking to make a quick buck.


  2. "Great experience if you are looking to go into insurance sales, risk management or benefits consulting."
