Pros

You will learn how to build your book of business. You will learn how to manage your time for maximum efficiency and productivity. You will choose who you want to do business with. You will learn how to communicate and gather important information from clients so you can provide custom tailored solutions to them.

Cons

You're expected to be at a morning meeting at 7:30 every day and review publicly what you've accomplished regarding your stated goals.
If your manager requires you to book 4 new appointments a day, you will call until you do so.
Like it or not, everyone's production numbers are posted system wide every month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more informal events where new and experienced agents can interact.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Training for new reps as well as personal mentoring
    Great pay if you actually makes sales
    Plethora of leadership opportunities

    Cons

    Full-commission (not for the immature)
    Fell lost sometime in that there is a lot to learn in so little time if you want to make real money
    Pay schedule can be a bit confusing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! In the training class, make sure to give more information into how reps actually get paid and be more clear of cutoff dates
