Best thing is the pension plan.
With my advisor I was given a 401k option . Benefits depend on the advisor
Great healthcare coverage and retirement
Lots of contests provide great experiences, incredible work/life balance, pension for advisors, they offer health and dental, strategic compensation
I never recieved any benefits with the company. All i got was commission. Im assuming they were good becasue thats what they do.
interns do not get any benefits, I think FT employees do get some benefits but they are also strongly urged to buy products from Northwestern Mutual as well.
No vision or dental insurance. No 401k for retirement savings either. Training was pretty good as well. Respected in industry.
received COLA raises and health insurance program; no dental was offered (vision could of been better with variety/numerous providers)
lot of perks unlimited days off 401k was good, not bad but not great, no company car or phone but thats ok
Associate financial representatives are employed by individual advisors, and as such, are not guaranteed any benefits. This is especially true if you are working for a new advisor. Expect to be sold policies that you may not need or be able to afford and expect not to be given any type of health or dental insurance. You may be given bonuses, but they are usually conditional on whether or not you are able to give client referrals to your employer who then go on to buy policies from the employer.
