    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a 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.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    "Unlimited Earning Potential" and "Make your own hours." They make you feel welcome and really try to make it seem like an amazing opportunity.

    Cons

    You end up having to pay rent and utilities for your office space. The "training program" is a complete sham, they will only hire you if you have a solid client list already in place to bring to the company.
