    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High quality, inspiring people. As stable as a company can get. Committed to core values. Full of challenge. Most who enter the company and perform well will never leave. Culture is extremely strong.

    Cons

    Not always the right people in the right positions. Main career (financial representative) is extremely challenging and many who try it will not be successful in the role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate leadership constantly and don't shy away from change. Adapt to changing technology and invest in new resources.
