I worked at Northwestern Mutual

Pros

-Good People
-A common respect shared with everyone
-Pay can be very high if you tough it out

Cons

-Can be expensive to start
-No Salary whatsoever
-Small "incentive" package to get you started
-Can be hard to convince people to save money for a rainy day when it is raining outside

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Overall good Job and good communication between management and the people in the network. Just like any other company, there can be mis-communications, but it is an overall good environment to work for if you have a good contact list and are ready to work 70 hours+.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual

    Pros

    Decent managers generally speaking (depends on your location), solid in their niche of the market, good reputation in most scenarios

    Cons

    Zero salary incentive,
    Not as well known publically as some of the competitors in many of the potential markets.
    Conservative marketing approach most of the time.
    Some political pandering within the sales ranks.
    At this time, a lot of prospective clients don't have much to contribute to their future financial planning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase marketing efforts, loosen your tie a bit :)
