I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for 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

Keep adapting and exposing reps to all aspects of the business

    The Big Brother program is a great idea but there needs to be a selection process between the new rep & the Big Brothers to connect with similar personalities.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful office, friendly atmosphere, and great training program.

    Cons

    It is sink or swim. You are given the training and you have a development specialist, but if you are not doing well, you are not making any money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be more stipends for people just starting out or possibly a draw.
