I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for 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 full-time

    Pros

    The training is superb and the ability to develop an integrated insurance and investments practice is unique in the industry. The income potential is limitless.

    Cons

    You truly are on your own. You have to source every client you acquire. While income potential is limitless, there is also no floor...which makes it difficult if you experience reversals or a couple stagnant months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more quality and less quantity.
