Pros

The company is great if you are buying insurance from. Financials are great.

Cons

They don't care about employees. All they care about is lives and bringing in new business. Pay is not great

Advice to Management

Help current employees get better before hiring everybody there

    Pros

    Northwestern Mutual has great products and services which makes them easier to sell. You are mostly your own boss if you are a financial rep.

    Cons

    Since you are your own boss you have to be motivated to work. If you are not self motivated this job is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your own actions by not throwing the blame on the most recent person that left.


  2. Smart, motivated people with an eye toward giving back - afraid of new people

    Pros

    Clear leadership
    Thoughtful approach to investments leading to solid business outcomes
    Leader in community
    Great value for policy owners
    Solid business relationship approach

    Cons

    Still developing diversity in ideas, staff - big opportunity here
    Modest pay
    Slow pace - can be frustrating for those wired to deliver at a faster pace
    Low turnover and minimal outside influence stunt innovation opportunities because of low confidence if not invented internally

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the fundamentals but fire up the innovation to keep leading in your chosen areas
