As achieving financial security becomes more complex for people, a few simple truths are becoming even more powerful. Relationships are built on trust. Our lives and businesses matter. And we’re much stronger together than we are apart. These beliefs launched our company nearly 160 years ago. Today they’re hardwired into our DNA and are just some of the reasons why people turn to Northwestern Mutual to help secure their financial lives. Why are we so passionate about helping people achieve financial security? To start with, it’s not about profits. As a mutual company, we don’t have stockholders. It’s because we love building brighter futures for our more than four million client, financial representatives, employees and communities. We do it unlike anybody else. We believe in doing what’s right. This is evident in the way we do business, in how we work with clients, in the values we hold and in the way we’re working together to strengthen local communities.

Our representatives get to know their clients’ hopes and dreams so they can help them make life’s financial decisions with confidence. Working with some of the best-trained financial professionals in the business, clients benefit from a distinctive planning approach that includes protecting what they already have and high-quality products that perform for the long term.
We create meaningful employment opportunities and invest in our people. We strengthen local businesses and economies. We give back.

I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time
Complete autonomy of your schedule, clients, and effort. It's quite simple if you're someone who thrives, you'll have a great career. I was an intern while in college and learned more in a summer about life and business then I had in a lifetime. I decided to bet on myself as a young 22 year old and create my own financial planning practice and haven't looked back since. Done and seen things that I never thought I would.
A lot of people start this career and cannot survive the roller coaster ride at the beginning and quit on themselves.
Advice to Management
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Oak Brook, IL) in March 2016.
Long and Lengthy but great people and comfortable interview process. Took about 4 interviews with different people and personality quiz. Very relaxed, if you be yourself you are fine they have a great culture and do a lot for you to succeed.
There was no negotiation they have a contract as it is commission only and pay very well if you are able to produce.
