    Former Associate Financial Representative in Louisville, Kentucky

    Flexible work schedule, great health insurance, nice 401(k) match, and better than average vacation days for a new employee.

    Current Financial Representative in Nashville, Tennessee

    The best thing about the benefits at NM is THE PENSION! The pension is awesome! Not many companies have one anymore. The catch, you have to work there for 15 years, which only about less than 5% ever do. The worst thing about the benefits is the health insurance. Don't let a Managing Director church-up the health insurance. They do not have co-pays at a doctors office or co-pays for prescriptions.They have $500 deductibles for hospital expenses. Very disappointed.

    Very good health insurance through United Health Care. And very good 401(k) plan opportunities.

    NM had doubled contributions into our HSA the past 3 years, $400 each year. I like our health plan, but other benefits are based on your production/compensation. Also the retirement pension benefits don't vest for 5 years!

    Current Financial Representative in Mount Laurel, New Jersey

    Best: Flexible hours
    Worst: Not a good health plan

    The best thing is the pension that they still pay along with a 401(k) style retirement account that they contribute to fully, as well as your ability to sell off your investment book at the end of your career, usually for a heavy premium.

    Must be with the company 15 years to be vested in their pension.
