    It's a hidden pyramid scheme for recent college graduates.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    If you know a ton of people who just got married, just had a baby, or just bought a house you have the potential to make a lot of money

    Cons

    Management will continuously pest you about buying your own policies and reaching out to those closest to you with the hopes they will buy a policy from you to help you start out. Each managing director is all about themselves and will do anything to make money off of your contacts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit pestering your own employees to buy their own policies.

    Great sales training but kind of exploited and a lot of work

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

    Pros

    Great sales training, on-phone and in person communication skills dramatically improved. Great opportunity to make money if you are very personable but don't take rejection personally.

    Cons

    They basically ask you to call all your family and family friends and meet with them and try to sell them insurance or get them to give you friends they know. It was personally uncomfortable asking a lot of these things of friends and family. A lot of work to get the licenses and work hours are flexible but only a small stipend if you do not make any sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make students more aware of program requirements and duties before they are accepted. Great training and experience but a lot of work for a frustrating process as a college student.
