ProsNorthwestern Mutual (NM) Corporate Headquarters is not for everyone, but if you can learn to adapt and work within or around NM's culture you will be satisfied working for one of the best companies in the Midwest.
-People REALLY care about the company
-VERY strong brand
-Stability
-career opportunities (cross-training is encouraged and rewarded if you can level up quickly)
-Good compensation package (not great from an IT perspective, but not bad)
-pension
-lunch...
-amenities

ConsThe culture is one of the most difficult things to get used to. It's possible to thrive within the structure, but takes a long time to get used to.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage people to take more chances.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
