    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (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.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Strong institution with solid financial strength and a high-quality basic product of life insurance. After a great deal of careful analysis, I bought a policy myself. Their fiscal and investments performance in the meltdown of 2008 was stellar.

    Cons

    Very "Mad Men" environment -- the Associates are nothing more than secretaries, regardless of education, experience, or credentials, and the culture is stuck in the 1960s, with all that that implies. Very surprising and disappointing to someone coming from a large corporate background.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This franchisee organization is starting to learn the "patter" of diversity and inclusion, but the reality is something altogether different, especially in the network offices, and signs of change are surface-level only.
