I have been working at Northwestern Mutual as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Get to work with senior executives and go on meetings with them which helps you learn the process. Good commission.

Cons

Sales is not for everyone. Cold calling is a lot of rejection. They also push you to contact friends and family which can be uncomfortable.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great training and support.

    Cons

    Job is difficult. Full commission based sales can be unstable for new hires. Payoff doesn't come until a few years later.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to help new hires become financially stable to decrease employee turnover.

    I worked at Northwestern Mutual full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have an excellent training program and encourage new Financial Representatives to learn from more seasoned and experienced Advisers. The financial strength of the company is superior to that of most, if not all, competitors in the industry.

    Cons

    Since you "own your business" you pay for everything; from company trips, and office rent to paper-clips, parking, printing and even bottled water for clients. Northwestern Mutual puts th value of the reputation of the company name, higher than the value of its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest money back into your people (besides management, or they will leave).
