I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern

Pros

Northwestern Mutual has great products and services which makes them easier to sell. You are mostly your own boss if you are a financial rep.

Cons

Since you are your own boss you have to be motivated to work. If you are not self motivated this job is not for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take responsibility for your own actions by not throwing the blame on the most recent person that left.

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

    Pros

    Great company. Great culture. Anyone who's passionate about building their own practice, valuing flexibility and looking for uncapped income potential should go for it.

    Cons

    The whole environment is really fast paced. You have to work hard to catch up with others.

    Smart, motivated people with an eye toward giving back - afraid of new people

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Clear leadership
    Thoughtful approach to investments leading to solid business outcomes
    Leader in community
    Great value for policy owners
    Solid business relationship approach

    Cons

    Still developing diversity in ideas, staff - big opportunity here
    Modest pay
    Slow pace - can be frustrating for those wired to deliver at a faster pace
    Low turnover and minimal outside influence stunt innovation opportunities because of low confidence if not invented internally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the fundamentals but fire up the innovation to keep leading in your chosen areas
