Northwestern Mutual was a great company where I learned a great deal about the insurance and sales industries.

Financial Representative (Former Employee)

ProsGreat team environment. Room for personal growth. Make your own schedule but the company keeps you accountable by pushing you to meet certain activity goals. Good compensation for hard work. Management motivates you to acquire additional licenses and certifications.

ConsTo initially succeed you need to put in at least 60 hours a week, preferably more, unless you have a strong natural market. No base salary. Certain minimums must be met before Northwestern will sponsor you to attain basic investments licenses. This makes it hard to do what they want you to do with clients, be a financial planner, without working with other members within the office.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
