    Former Employee - Sales Representative 
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    None. They took all my leads and kept them for themselves.

    Cons

    It's a cult. They want you to sell as much as you can, knowing that only 5 percent will make it in the business. Then, they keep the accounts and make you pay back your commission. It's a scheme.

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual for less than a year

    Pros

    Uncapped earnings potential. Availability of resources. Knowledge of other advisors. Puts the client first

    Cons

    It's very difficult to get started. The majority of work is from natural market, so if you do not have a natural market then you will likely fail. It is also very much a trial & error job where you get thrown into the sea to see if you can swim.

    Advice to Management

    Increased efforts to identify and help with initial natural market.
