I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The company truly believes in doing what is best for the policy holder.

Cons

They only want the best in the field. If you are not in the top 25%, it is easier to work as a financial rep for other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that the employees of the Agencies are CRITICAL to the success of the whole enterprise. Get more involved to insure that those employees are treated well in their agencies.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great weekly skill builder meetings
    Through amounts of training

    Cons

    It's a sales job so if you aren't making sales, you're not going to cut it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Warn the interns a bit more about what they are going to be really doing earlier on.
