    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (less than an year)


    Every one is treated well. Which you should be because you will be paying Northwestern every month that you work there. That is how is should truly be presented.


    Not sure why everyone is hyped on the training. I had training in Philadelphia. When I started day 1 out of training I didn't have an idea what to do. Training was awful and gave you a wiki version of the career. I wasn't impressed with how the company operates. Even though I have a family and took a big risk doing the job to be a "financial rep" I was forced to go on a company annual trip which would have put me in debt. I thought the company pays, wrong. You do, actually telephone, office space, week one you are paying to be there. I was falsely under the impression was you have 6 months then there is a fee.

    Next problem I ran into was meetings. The company has a lot of "meetings." Even for coaching, which I got either pushed back or forgotten about my first few weeks. Maybe I was the one of the few who fell between the cracks. It's your time, the clock is ticking and now your on someone else's schedule. That is if they remember that they have you on theirs.

    Bad taste in my mouth. The job is like playing the lottery. You get trained by essentially millionaires. However, they are the only ones in the office. About 100 new employees are recruited every years, but there is a reason why only 1 in the 5 year span will really make it. The age gap is far few in between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training and provide salary for starting reps. OR pair a financial rep with a senior rep for a small salary and commission for a few months or the first year. The job is way to important to just through some witty lyrics into a conversation and hope to make a sale.
