I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Over rewards successful PROSPECTORS...it's a wonderful business if you are able to work 70 hrs/week for the first couple of years. Be able to operate at a very high integrity level. Represent a company with products as good as any other and much better than most.

Cons

Even tho there is great training, you have to be a self-starter and be willing to overcome loads of rejection.

Advice to Management

Stay the course. The NM system, integrity, and extreme sense of mutuality create the superior products and services.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, they are truly supportive. They train you very well and try to help out as much as possible. Great work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Commission based pay. I came right out of college to work here and unless you are networked very well with a large number of people who are willing to hear your pitch, it's very hard to succeed.


  2. Experience was very educating and an eye opener.
