Hard work, awesome impact

Financial Representative (Current Employee)
Downers Grove, IL

I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

ProsIncome potential... tremendous impact on the people we help.... If you're in this business for the right reasons, it can be a very rewarding career. How many people do you know that would like to have their own business? How many people actually go for it? In my experience, there aren't many who can take that leap of faith. Northwestern Mutual helps you build a business from the ground up with proven methods that have made this company the most admired in the financial world.

ConsIt's hard work getting a business going... alot of sharp people can't stick with it long enough.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp us with the costs of hiring an assistant.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Only If you're a good salesman...

Financial Representative (Former Employee)
Commack, NY

I worked at Northwestern Mutual


Pros: Work here if you enjoy autonomy and the ability to make your own schedule. You can meet with your clients and build your business… Cons: You are basically a glorified salesman. For some (who know a lot of people and can sell pretty easily)… Advice to Senior Management: none really. More
