I worked at Northwestern Mutual as a contractor (More than a year)

Great value for policy owners
Solid business relationship approach

Cons

Still developing diversity in ideas, staff - big opportunity here

Slow pace - can be frustrating for those wired to deliver at a faster pace
Low turnover and minimal outside influence stunt innovation opportunities because of low confidence if not invented internally

Advice to Management

Keep doing the fundamentals but fire up the innovation to keep leading in your chosen areas

    I have been working at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the best companies to work for. Northwestern assures that their employees are extremely qualified to aid their clients in the best possible manner. The motto that you "work for yourself but not by yourself" certainly shines through in Northwestern's corporate philosophy.

    Cons

    The industry lends itself to a competitive nature. People who are not motivated by competition or are not self-motivated will have a difficult time being successful at Northwestern and the Financial Services industry as a whole

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide your employees and customers with great financial stability.

    Pros

    Very practical experience in the business world. Become comfortable phoning and conducting meetings. Test drive a career in the financial services industry. Allowed to set your own schedule.

    Cons

    Expected to try to sell to friends and family. Need to have tough skin to handle rejection. Compensation is mainly commission which is tough for college students.
