Pros

Long Term Views
Ethical
Environment where work and effort are rewarded
Great Work Life Balance
Family Oriented

Cons

The company has some growing pains. They also are not fully utilzing their field force for leadership opportunities or growth. There is such a distance between the field force and the corporate folks it has become difficult to bridge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep Up the Good Work.
You have plenty of leaders in the field force that you are not utilizing.

    Pros

    Top 10 internship program, best whole life insurance policies in the industry, unmatched recognition, great joint-work partners, get out what you put in, work your own hours

    Cons

    Life Insurance is a hard sell, pushing products onto clients, stressful, ups and downs, some older reps feel superior to others, trip to annual was extremely expensive and they push it on all the interns to attend

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give interns an extra week of training, pay for their trip to annual in Milwaukee

    Pros

    Having 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

    Cons

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