Amazing opportunity to test drive a fantastic career and have a head-start coming out the gates.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Real world experience, test driving a career, professional licensure and certification, lots of valuable learning.


Downers

There were many interns who were of high quality but also quite a few that were not and it would be nice if Northwestern Mutual would be able to screen out the ones who are not serious better...


Advice to Potential Interns

As a true mutual and client-owned company Northwestern Mutual embraces core values of integrity and doing what is right for the clients. This culture is a really special environment to learn and become a part of.

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.

Real life financial services training and career opportunity.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The people I worked with, the real world experience, the opportunity to grow into a career, and the fun environment.


Downers

The interview process was a little extensive.


Advice to Potential Interns

This will be a great opportunity to learn the real world practice of financial planning, to learn by doing, and to learn how to conduct yourself professionally. If this is a viable career for you, it will be the most rewarding career path possible. If it isn't, you'll still gain great knowledge into how to handle your own financial affairs and make great connections for future use. It is truly a win-win.

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.

This internship provided me with actual real world career experience and set me up for success upon graduation.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Flexible hours, work harder and make more, mentorship program to help you stay accountable, and opportunity to positively impact someone's life.


Downers

It's difficult to get started because you are basically starting your own business and it's up to you (with much help from your mentors of course) to grow your business.


Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard and don't slack off. This career isn't any fun if you dont have any meetings on your calendar!


Advice to Management

Nothing, I think the management structure is excellent here.

Help interns understand that sometimes working smarter, not just harder, leads to bigger results.
