    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a great track record and offers quality products.
    They are more conservative in their approach to financial planning (pro if your conservative).
    They are located all over the US so your free to transfer to a desired location...most of the time.
    They are big on joint work, this is beneficial to new hires so that they can learn from more experienced individuals...just hope that you can find someone willing to go with you.

    Cons

    Because they have no leads for the agents, you must do all of that yourself. It can be tough in the beginning, but if you stick with it, I've seen many make it through and be very successful.
    They are more conservative in their approach to financial planning (con if your not conservative).
    The commission earned is less than other financial services companies.
