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

Pros

-Learning about the world of finance.
-The network and relationships you build
-Complete autonomy of how you run your practice but with world-class training and help

Cons

-100% commissions-It's awesome when you have a great month.....not so nice when you have a good month
-too much emphasis on numbers and quotas as opposed to individual development

Advice to Management

Not every one is driven by the same things or can be managed or inspired the same way. Take into consideration the varying personalities and work on people's individual strengths and weaknesses

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

    Pros

    Excellent Training program, really teach you their way and good prospecting
    Flexible Schedule as long as you are putting in the work, you get out what you put in

    Cons

    No forms of leads provided, want to prospect friends and family first and foremost. Difficult industry and looked down upon like a used car salesman

    Advice to Management

    Keep adapting and exposing reps to all aspects of the business

    Pros

    "Unlimited Earning Potential" and "Make your own hours." They make you feel welcome and really try to make it seem like an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    You end up having to pay rent and utilities for your office space. The "training program" is a complete sham, they will only hire you if you have a solid client list already in place to bring to the company.
