Best place to work

Financial Representative (Current Employee)
Lima, OH

ProsHaving worked 18 years at an oil refinery where the employer basically "owned" you NML is a great place to work. I missed a lot of birthdays, Christmas's, etc because I needed to be at the refinery but that is not the case with NML. I can work hard and take time off when I need to The freedom is something that I could never give up. The retirement benefits rank #1 in the industry

ConsCan't really think of anything because you get out what you put in.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone

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