I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

High quality, inspiring people. As stable as a company can get. Committed to core values. Full of challenge. Most who enter the company and perform well will never leave. Culture is extremely strong.

Cons

Not always the right people in the right positions. Main career (financial representative) is extremely challenging and many who try it will not be successful in the role.

Advice to Management

Evaluate leadership constantly and don't shy away from change. Adapt to changing technology and invest in new resources.
