Pros

Financial advisors help train you in techniques they use to expand their market
Solid compensation program with commission and bonuses.

Cons

The industry can be difficult to start building a book of business, but that is typical for many financial careers.

Advice to Management

Give employees a small stipend to help support them during the beginning months. Its hard to market yourself when you aren't making very much money fresh out of college.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time

    Pros

    Great training and great marketing materials

    Cons

    I felt like I was being lied to by my co-workers; the rate of success in this business is very low and they were not upfront with that fact.


  2. "Just an awful place to work."

    Pros

    No pros, except that the company as a whole is good. Northwestern is an amazing company, but not the Seery group. They are the agency in WHite Plains.

    Cons

    Awful management. Awful structure. Just terrible teamwork. They do not want you to succeed and the level of turnover is awful. people are in and out all the time. The firm is not doing well, and the amount of people staying there is so slim. People al compain about how miserable they are.
    RUN FROM THIS PLACE!
