    Tough gig, but you learn a lot, even if you can't make it into a career.

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, full autonomy with work.

    Cons

    That unlimited earning potential comes at a cost...unlimited amount of time needed to dedicate to being successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring large amounts of people to curb against the low retention rate is not an efficient way to set up your financial reps for their future.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company does a great job putting you through a training program and getting you excited about the opportunity. The company is very financially solid and job security seems high.

    Cons

    Terrible position for someone starting out or in college. After training they give you absolutely no help and have high expectations. All they want to do is sell life insurance to your family and friends. Total joke of a system and they lost all my respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say you enjoy to bring on a lot of interns and new financial reps to do anything but steal the clients for your top managers. Giving them 1/2 of the credit and money is a joke.
