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

    Pros

    You earn what you think you're worth. You have some flexibility of schedule. It's ever changing, not just a desk job.

    Cons

    They feed you a bill of goods saying you're "starting your own business" but then they micromanage you. It is a different atmosphere, you need to be a "rah rah" type to fit in. All commission.

    Advice to Management

    The management that I dealt with was not extremely mature. So I would say that it would be helpful to take a more "manager" role rather than a "friend" role.
