Northwestern Mutual develops college students into financially sound and successful entrepeneurs.


Uppers

The office culture is great, with everyone striving to be the best versions of themselves. I love the drive within my office. I was compensated well and able to develop my own financial plan that will serve me well into the future. The perks of working in our office are great, and employee appreciation is clearly noted. Recognition is given often and when deserved. I love the relationships I have with my mentors, as I know I can go to them with any problem, professional or otherwise, and they will do their best to help me. My knowledge of personal finance has blossomed since being with Northwestern and this knowledge will serve me well going into the future.


Downers

This business has a lot of emotional up and downs, however this was mitigated by the presence of great mentors.


Advice to Potential Interns

If you desire a future where you are largely your own boss, and able to have as much freedom as you wish, you should be willing to fight for this job.

An internship that creates great generational employees but more importantly better people


Uppers

Pay, opportunity, the lack of micromanagement, accessibility to resources and guidance, career opportunity


Downers

The least favorite parts are ultimately what creates urgency to do better (i.e. lack of hourly pay)


Advice to Potential Interns

Although all commission and sales are a scary thing, taking advantage of an opportunity that requires you to fulfill the responsibilities of a CEO at an early age will propel your professional life regardless of where one ends up


Advice to Management

I have no quarrels here


Would You Recommend

Yes

Self discipline was a struggle at first but I have made great progress in that area that will help me in all aspects of life

Not many internships give you the flexibility and power to try out the real career. You won't be doing pointless things like catering to someone.


Advice to Management

Training could use some work

You made copies or input useless data for someone else while I started my own business as an intern!

Flexibility of schedule and the ability to make as much money as I want.

It's not for the faint of heart. It's hard work but it pays off.

You will not get better actual work experience anywhere else. You'll learn more in this internship than you ever thought possible and it will make you a better professional.

The best aspects were the very informing trainings and support of the entire company whether it be my office at a local level or the home office on a national capacity.

There were very few things I disliked about the internship.
