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

    Pros

    Beautiful office, friendly atmosphere, and great training program.

    Cons

    It is sink or swim. You are given the training and you have a development specialist, but if you are not doing well, you are not making any money.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more stipends for people just starting out or possibly a draw.

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

    Pros

    Great products, address needs for all people with their life insurance. Best insurance rates of return. The position gives college students a great opportunity to sell their products.

    Cons

    The main purpose is to sell policies to your friends and family. The program is designed for the company to gain as many new policies as they can. If you do not go full time with the company they still have policies. They play the numbers game and have a large number of people not return full time.
