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

    Pros

    Great internship program, teaches a pretty fail safe way to do well in the business and it is full of very successful insurance and financial representatives.

    Cons

    They push the Whole Life Life insurance as an investment. I think they mislead interns and clients as well on its value to your portfolio. It also has the highest commission rate. Probably not a coincidence


  2. "If you are materialistic, inexperienced, white and male, this is the perfect place for you."

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

    Pros

    Best cash value life insurance products in the industry. Great view of the city from the 30th floor. Well dressed coworkers. Good place to start if you can't get into sales anywhere else.

    Cons

    If you are a woman forget it. This place is a frat house. It is very unlikely that if you are a normal well balance human being, that you will succeed in making a living. Less than 1 in 10 make it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't teach new recruits to fake their expenses by gathering non business expenses and calling them business expenses on their tax returns.
