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 as an intern (less than an year)

    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

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

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None
