    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    money is good and the future possibilities are encouraging. literally made calls day in and day out but worth it for the experience

    Cons

    extreme hours and minimal breaks. cold calling gets a bit tedious and you are not giving someone really to mentor.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Make your own schedule and you get to be out interacting with clients. All commission, so for people who want to work hard and sell insurance.

    Cons

    The job is basically asking you to sell life insurance to your friends and family, which is uncomfortable to some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the interns know what they are getting themselves into!
