Good place for sales representatives.

Financial Adviser (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Northwestern Mutual

ProsNorthwestern Mutual is a good place for people who are good at sales related financial services. The compensation is good for the people who can sell.

ConsIf you are not a sales type of person, you will struggle to make money as it is based all on compensation.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is terrific. The only matter is in the employees being good at sales. The management can help you figure out if it's right for you to be at Northwestern Mutual.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
