Some of the best training in the industry

Financial Representative (Former Employee)
Waukesha, WI

I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a year

ProsTwo offices to my knowledge, Chicago and Milwaukee, have managing partners who push their financial reps harder than anyone else in the business. There's a reason why they are so successful.

Training is very thorough and had several headhunters contact me for other opportunities based solely on my experience with NMFN.

I worked out of the Waukesha, WI office and had the best support from the College Unit Director, Managing Director, and other reps within the office.

ConsI can't say anything bad about the company. It's a wonderful place to work. Well, it would be nice if the financial reps got to taste some of that awesome food at the home office.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up fellas.

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