ehhh

Financial Representative (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

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 Senior Management- 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awesome Experience But not for everyone!

    Financial Representative (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: Awesome Training! Good $$$ for the 1st year! I did great and hit their pacesetter 40 and 60 which means you sell 100 life insurance… Cons: After the first year they pull the carpet out and start charging you for rent, decrease your commission, and see if you can survive.… Advice to Senior Management: They ARE the best Life insurance company...Period!....But if you want… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
