It allowed me to test drive the career before signing on full time and develop a base knowledge in my field while starting to build clients
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The culture and the learning relevant to my field as well as the chance to help people.

I didn't have a natural market yet, so it was hard to build that right out of the gate

Northwestern Mutual provides its interns with the experience of working as a full-time financial representative with 100% support.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I love the company culture and the support staff behind it. With this internship, the only reason one could have problems is if they get in their own way.


Downers

The job itself is not the easiest as you have the same responsibilities as full-time representatives, but there are no complaints about the internship program itself.


Advice to Potential Interns

No matter what, Northwestern Mutual will give all interns the opportunity to gain professional business experience working with clients of any caliber. The flexibility of the schedule and the additional growth opporutnities that they offer will constantly keep you on your toes and always learning.

Gateway to a full-time career in finance

The amazing Northwestern Mutual Internship allowed me to come out of the military, replace my pay and benefits, and go to school full time.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The freedom to choose my hours and work with the types of clients I wanted to work with. The pay was great because it was a reflection of the work I did. The harder I worked, the better my pay is. I also really loved the professional culture at Northwestern Mutual, it is truely great and everyone really cares about my success. The recognition and opportunity for advancement are great, I am now in a leadership role and get to work alongside the top leadership and still be an intern.


Downers

I only wished that more students would take the opportunity and see if this is a fit for them.


Advice to Potential Interns

Even if you do not think that this is the right internship for you I would give it a shot anyway. The company makes such an investment in you as an intern and you will gain more experience in a few months than you would have anywhere else. This is real business experience here.


Advice to Management

I have already worked with management in our office to get more internship contests and opportunities out to our group. From big Northwestern Mutual, I would love to see a contest for the Spring Semester.

Uppers

I was able to work in a role that was nearly the same as the full time role I have now and have had for nearly 10 years. The mentoring and support was amazing and I truly learned what it was like to be in our industry.


Downers

nothing in particular, I accepted a full-time position and I'm still with the company. I will be with Northwestern Mutual the rest of my career.


Advice to Potential Interns

If someone wants an internship that is based on real world work and gain true experience in the financial advisory field, there isn't a better place to work.

Best Place to Launch Your Career
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The experience of learning how to run my own business and to push myself to things I never thought I could do.


Downers

Nothing. I loved everything about my internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Northwestern Mutual, in my opinion, is by far the best company to work for in the financial services industry. When they say they care about their clients, they really mean it on the adviser level as well as on the corporate level.


Advice to Management

I cannot think of anything at this time.


Would You Recommend

Yes

I feel that as interns we are unable to use some useful tools that the company has which would make us more productive as interns.
