I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Long Term Views
Ethical
Environment where work and effort are rewarded
Great Work Life Balance
Family Oriented

Cons

The company has some growing pains. They also are not fully utilzing their field force for leadership opportunities or growth. There is such a distance between the field force and the corporate folks it has become difficult to bridge.

Advice to Management

Keep Up the Good Work.
You have plenty of leaders in the field force that you are not utilizing.
