I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (more than an year)

Pros

great support, they really care about their clients and advisors, take a holistic approach towards financial planning, does not attempt to make you push products as they always make sure whatever they are recommending is in the best interest of the client, pays for designations and licenses, great management support team, really makes you grow as a person, sr. reps are always willing to go on meeting with less experienced reps to help them aid clients

Cons

if you don't work extremely hard you will fail out of this business, you cannot hope to just "float", if you're looking for just another desk job where you receive your paycheck each week regardless of what you did then this is definitely not the career for you

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep doing a great job!

    Pros

    - Potential to make good income, but that's if you are highly connected coming in

    Cons

    - Constantly at the office instead of selling
    - Dying industry
    - you are asked to constantly hound friends and family
    - You are told you can make your own schedule, that's false

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - The Irvne office in general needs new management. The managing director makes claims that are totally impossible and he has a huge napoleon complex. I would also reccomend leaving the 16th century thinking.

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

    Pros

    The company does a great job putting you through a training program and getting you excited about the opportunity. The company is very financially solid and job security seems high.

    Cons

    Terrible position for someone starting out or in college. After training they give you absolutely no help and have high expectations. All they want to do is sell life insurance to your family and friends. Total joke of a system and they lost all my respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say you enjoy to bring on a lot of interns and new financial reps to do anything but steal the clients for your top managers. Giving them 1/2 of the credit and money is a joke.
