I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time

Pros

Nice offices, free lunch, proper tools to get job done.

Cons

Over promote from withing, many senior managers promoted past level of competence. Promote from within policy leads to many individuals becoming managers of functional areas in which they have no practical experience.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity for self-motivated individuals who want to work closely with clients.

    Cons

    It is difficult to create a client base over the course of a summer, and people are often reluctant to trust their finances to an intern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote more communication between interns and more experienced financial representatives.
