Just an awful place to work.

I worked at Northwestern Mutual

Pros

No pros, except that the company as a whole is good. Northwestern is an amazing company, but not the Seery group. They are the agency in WHite Plains.

Cons

Awful management. Awful structure. Just terrible teamwork. They do not want you to succeed and the level of turnover is awful. people are in and out all the time. The firm is not doing well, and the amount of people staying there is so slim. People al compain about how miserable they are. RUN FROM THIS PLACE!

    Pros

    Tremendous amount of time and money put into personal development and training. Has one of the best internship programs developed for the financial services industry.

    Cons

    Hard recruiting environment-hard to attract good candidates, expect you to refer people to the career or rely on reps to refer you candidate and that doesn't happen easily.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so discriminatory when it comes to hiring recruiters. By far, the vast majority of recruiters are young, attractive women and their is a clear bias by management to keep it this way.


  2. The experience I gained there is invaluable and will help me in so many facets of my life.

    Pros

    -Learning about the world of finance. -The network and relationships you build -Complete autonomy of how you run your practice but with world-class training and help

    Cons

    -100% commissions-It's awesome when you have a great month.....not so nice when you have a good month -too much emphasis on numbers and quotas as opposed to individual development

    Advice to Management

    Not every one is driven by the same things or can be managed or inspired the same way. Take into consideration the varying personalities and work on people's individual strengths and weaknesses
