I worked at Northwestern Mutual

Pros

Internship paid 100 dollars a week plus the ability to earn an unlimited amount to commission with hard work and motivation.

Cons

The commission is below par compared to other insurance companies and whole life insurance is sold like an investment to every one where there could be better options.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I feel the training program is rushed and focused on sales before proper training and understanding of jobs is shown.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    Very experienced staff and works with you on the varies aspects of the industry. Would recommend everyone to challenge themselves by working at NM.

    Cons

    Compensation might be slightly lower then peers. And the name branding is not a nationally top tier brand. Many people that you try to sell to will wonder who is this?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make product lines more flexible with the current times to make them easier and better product to sell. And make diverse changes with the times.

    Pros

    The management team are very helpful and encouraging in letting people grow their practice. The training we all received was a wonderful experience. NMFN gives you all the tools you need to build a successful practice; however, they can only give so much. The rest is up to your work ethic.

    Cons

    Some people consider that our compensation of commissions is a 'con,' but that is up to the person. Hard working and motivated people will love the fact that their earnings correlate directly with their work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a bit more time with the newer reps, especially the ones out of college. Their disciplinary level is different then an incoming career changer. Also, we have to do something to fix the high turnover rate. This is the best way to get a better market penetration.
