    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual for less than a year

    Pros

    Great office environment. It seems like everyone really wanted to be there and wanted to help each other succeed. Good amount of training. Free coffee all day everyday.

    Cons

    Cold calls. Be prepared to sell to friends and family. That is the only place you are going to get your referrals from. The first day that we went to our cubicals we were told to start calling. The room was really loud and it was hard to hear clients. I was not sure how many calls to make so I made 7. I felt that was a good amount for a half day. When we talked about it the next day to our supervisor he just... laughed.

    Advice to Management

    It would be a good idea to have your full time reps go out of their way to introduce themselves to new people and take an active role in getting them started.
