I worked at Northwestern Mutual

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 ManagementAdvice

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.
