I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a 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 for less than a 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.

    Just an awful place to work.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    No pros, except that the company as a whole is good. Northwestern is an amazing company, but not the Seery group. They are the agency in WHite Plains.

    Cons

    Awful management. Awful structure. Just terrible teamwork. They do not want you to succeed and the level of turnover is awful. people are in and out all the time. The firm is not doing well, and the amount of people staying there is so slim. People al compain about how miserable they are.
    RUN FROM THIS PLACE!
