I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent ethics - committed to doing the right thing for the policyowners
Fine salaries - not at the top but we have great amenities not found everywhere
Stable environment - being a mutual company means we can make decisions for the long term
Historical commitment to employees - after the policyowners, the company is committed to its employees and to treating them fairly

Cons

The company is attracting excellent people and needs to be more resourceful in providing them with opportunities to grow and remain challenged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think "outside the box" about how to keep your excellent employees engaged and growing. It will only benefit the company.

    Pros

    Free Lunch and many peopel who actually work there are very nice.

    Cons

    The Management is underqualified and have no idea in how to run a Help Desk. The training for new people is attrocious and they value being a team member over being Experienced! (So what you have are Bubbly peopel getting promoted and customers suffering from an ill- prepared overworked support staff.
