Former Employee - Financial Representative in Waukesha, WI

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

Pros

Two 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.

Cons

I 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 ManagementAdvice

Keep it up fellas.

    Extremely supportive company that helps new agents get their footing in the industry. A leader in financial strength that agents can rely on when telling potential clients about the benefits of investing with them.

    Dealing with a uninformed public about the benefits of life insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for new agents to have access to successful agents.
