I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Excellent training & examples of how to be successful.

Cons

No base salary other than signing bonus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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.

    Former Employee - Financial Representative Intern in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Former Employee - Financial Representative Intern in Indianapolis, IN (US)

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Exposure to wealth management industry, learning how to pitch/present yourself, setting your own schedule, actual trial run of what it is like to be a financial advisor, commission based, you could make whatever you wanted out of internship. little effort if you wanted to

    Cons

    commission based, using your family/relative contacts, trying to sell life insurance to older people as a 20 year old is very hard, no accountability if you didn't want to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to have more of a set program for interns across the country. I know in some offices they had different programs in monitoring interns relative to my office.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Unlimited income potential
    Great training, can break down the steps to succeed
    Proprietary products
    Family like work culture
    People always willing to help
    Huge amount of marketing resources
    Can use products outside of the Nmfn family

    Cons

    Financial rep position not suited for everyone, this is easily the biggest con. It takes the right person who can live with the good and bad days.
    Can be a lot of work to start
    Not something that is easy to relocate into without a network
    Not all network offices are as supportive
