Former Employee - Financial Representative  in  Waterloo, IA
Former Employee - Financial Representative in Waterloo, IA

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

Pros

Sky is the limit with income and time flexibility. Be prepared to start your own business. 100% commitment is needed for this career to have a chance at success.

Cons

No base salary.
Constant accountability for numbers (phone calls, appointments, sales, etc). This is good and bad. Meetings every morning to go over numbers get old.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lose the conservative values this company was founded on.

    Former Employee - Financial Representative  in  Waukesha, WI
    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.
